The mental health professionals at The Dot are trained in many different types of therapy that can help with issues related to trauma , grief, relationship issues (yes we do couples counselling) depression, anxiety and more.
It's not just you, life HAS gotten harder in the last few years. If you've been powering through, staying strong and carrying on, but now you're barely getting by and you're tired of feeling like you're not really living your life, it might be time for outside support. The benefit of therapy is that it's a time where you get to focus on yourself, to look at your life, and to get an outside perspective on how it could be different. You don't have to just endure, with the right support, you can heal from the past, and move forward towards a better future.

Do you wish your past didn't creep up to impact your present? Have you ever just felt stuck? If these questions speak to you as they do to me, I would be delighted to take the first steps toward wellness with you. Trauma and hardships can come in many different forms, and it is difficult to make the first move to seek support. It's exhausting, confusing, and at times even invalidating. I help folks to navigate their intersectional identities through the world to make it their own. I provide a safe and affirming space for you to process trauma through EMDR and TIR and to explore how you view the world and your place in it.

It can be overwhelming trying to navigate this alone. Maybe you’ve started to notice the trauma reactions you have been having, that can range from anxiety, depression, anger, and so forth. It’s starting to impact your day to day life, and you just want to feel like you can get through the day without this heavy cloud above you. Maybe you’re going through a big life transition and you feel like no one is truly listening or gets it. They act like they do, but you feel deep down like you’re alone in navigating this. Maybe you’re struggling with your relationships with your partner, kids, friends, or family.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

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.
