I am a trauma-informed therapist and work mainly from an attachment-based, and acceptance and commitment model.
Life is really hard, right? I'd love to help you through it. I am passionate about being a therapist and walking with my clients through the things they struggle with. I have a lot of experience working with clients who have experienced trauma, self-harm, suicidality, abuse, parenting challenges, and PTSD. I am queer friendly and have experience in religious trauma, as well. As a parent myself, I love to offer support to other parents and caregivers of children of all ages.

One devasting effect of trauma is that it robs us of connection with others and ourselves. Instead, we isolate and distance ourselves out of survival. However, when we reach out to others, we are repairing that lost connection and begin to heal. Trauma usually happens in relation and so does recovery! If interested please book a free consultation here: chrishaney.janeapp.com, email or call. Thank you!

People are wired to desire closeness within relationships. However, early trauma and deep seated disappointment train our brains to use strategies to decrease painful emotional experiencing. When nobody was there to bring comfort or teach coping strategies, people either grow up to isolate or become over involved in the lives of others. Therapy explores not just the storyline but more importantly, the emotions and meanings beneath. In therapy people want to strike that balance of feeling cared for and understood by the therapist, while also being gently challenged to risk change and the discomfort that comes with growth.

Winnipeg, MB R3K
My life experiences, in combination with my clinical skills and education, give me valuable insight into the struggles that many clients face including depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, and addictions.
EMDR is my preferred treatment method; it has changed my life and it has the potential to help you too. If EMDR is not right for you, my trainings in DBT, DNF, Narrative Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Gottman Method, Yoga, Dance, and Meditation make me a versatile and effective therapist. I understand the impact and prevalence of trauma in our world, and I take into consideration the ways that systems and structures (patriarchy, colonialism, racism, etc…) can negatively impact mental health, identity, relationships, and communities. My practice is body-positive; inclusive; LGBTQIA2S+; ENM; and kink friendly.

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
