All of us go through the winding footpaths of life and at one point in time experience moments that create long lasting impacts and changes in ourselves, our environment, and in the trajectory of our lives. Sometimes those experience can be positive, and sometimes they are negative. These negative experiences are we we define as traumatic events. Domestic Abuse and Violence are absolutely considered traumatic. Our therapists can help you identify the roots of your struggles and create a custom treatment plan to overcome them. Head over to our website to learn more! The experience of trauma and traumatic events can be painful and excruciating. Sometimes these experiences leave us at more than just at a loss, but can continue to cause us pain and fear. These experiences can alter the way your mind works. Creating physical and emotional responses to triggers that remind you of your trauma. Even when you are unaware of these triggers, you can be left feeling overactive and hyper-vigilant to certain moments and interactions. The post traumatic consequences (often known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD) of these triggers is that you can feel like you are on constant alert to prevent future danger and pain; even when there is none to be presently found. If left untreated it can lead to one feeling loss and overwhelmed and increase rates of risky or dangerous behaviours (i.e. increased aggression and violence, increased substance use, increased physical and mental distress). Our goal is help you heal. We offer a safe space and environment to begin the process of talking about your pain as a means to start processing what had happened to you. Talking about trauma doesn't always mean retelling your story. We work with each individual uniquely in order to find the path of healing that is more effective for them. We utilize a variety of techniques including a highly effective form of trauma therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help folks through this process in order to help you rediscover hope and empowerment. Understanding our past gives us an ability to take control what we want our future to look like. We believe that all people deserve to live a life free from fear and pain, all of us deserve a little help along the way.

Domestic abuse, also known as domestic violence, is a pattern of behavior used to gain power and control over another person within an intimate relationship. Domestic abuse can take many forms, including physical, sexual, emotional, and financial abuse. It can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or economic status. If you are experiencing domestic abuse, it's important to know that you are not alone and that help is available. Some steps you can take to protect yourself and seek help include: Reach out to a trusted friend or family member for support. Contact a local domestic violence hotline or shelter for assistance and resources. Develop a safety plan, including identifying a safe place to go if you need to leave, packing a bag with essential items, and having a trusted person you can call for help. Consider seeking therapy to address the emotional impact of the abuse. Consider seeking legal protection, such as a restraining order or divorce. Remember, no one deserves to be abused. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, it's important to seek help and support. There are resources available to help you escape the abuse and find safety.
