Although we are trained in talk therapy, our clinic offers more than just that! If you are looking for something that is different from the mainstream, each of our practitioners weaves together a number of different therapeutic approaches in their work so that your therapy is custom fit to you. You do not need to know which approaches would be right for you prior to coming – this can be discussed with your therapist. When working in an integrative model, multiple approaches can be drawn from in the course of one appointment in a seamless way, while other sessions may be focused more heavily on one approach. You may be curious or have questions about different approaches if you are new to therapy, or you may have past counselling experience and already have a good sense of what works for you. Your therapist will be happy to answer these questions for you.

The therapies we use can be practiced across from one another in a seated position, standing involving more active, movement-oriented exercises, or outdoors walking. Touch may or may not be involved, depending on the therapy approach, the therapist’s scope of practice, and your comfort level and goals. Your right to choice is paramount.
