We offer our services in BC, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Florida. 

  • The first session typically involves your therapist getting to know you and learning about what’s been going on for you. Establishing rapport and building a foundation for a therapeutic relationship is the first and step to successful therapy.
  • Therapy goals are discussed to ensure therapy can go in the direction that you desire and so it can be as effective as possible. It’s possible that a plan of action such as therapy approach, recommended frequency of sessions and other logistics are reviewed as well.
  • Every client has a unique pace for which they go through therapy, and the “getting to know you” part can carry over into subsequent sessions as you begin to work on things and make progress in therapy.

RRT is an accelerated way to overcome trauma, PTSD, emotional turmoil, limiting beliefs, and many other issues. RRT re-routes neural pathways to clear up the root causes of unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviours. If RRT sounds like something you may be interested in, or if you want to learn more, click this link or book a free consultation to see if it’s a fit for you.

  • Every client is unique! It can take 4 or more sessions to begin noticing real change.
  • Our therapists will assess your situation and you will decide together on a personal intervention plan, frequency of sessions and timeframe to get you feeling better.
