I have experience helping clients understand, address, and overcome the multitude of issues they encounter as result of trauma, anxiety, depression, domestic violence , or sexual assault.
I am a cisgender woman, with Mi’kmaw and Settler roots; as a result, the holistic therapy I provide is rooted in an anti-oppression approach. I was lucky enough to earn a Master of Social Work from the University of Buffalo. I chose that program because, unlike most other programs, it offered a specialty in utilizing a Trauma-Informed Focus. I was also trained in using EMDR. I have six years’ experience providing therapy; first in the USA and now in Canada. I’ve also provided services in community settings like the youth justice system and a community task force created to help deal with the human trafficking epidemic.

Through exploring your thoughts, feelings and body sensations we can see what patterns and ways of being you would like to keep, let go of, (re) discover and grow. Using compassion and humour, we’ll work together to understand your reactions and how to work towards chosen responses to help navigate you to a different place.

Hi there, and welcome! My name is Julia and I’m a Registered Psychotherapist with 12 years of experience working in counseling and mental health. I practice a creative, integrative approach that I tailor to each client. I believe that traumatic events (i.e. abuse , bullying, violence ) lead to mental health challenges. My approach helps you uncover, understand, and process the awful things that happened to you. As scary as it sounds, talking to a supportive, skilled therapist about your trauma does make you feel better. In fact, my clients often share that they feel less symptomatic, understood and lighter after just one session.

As a survivor of narcissistic abuse myself, I have done extensive research, certifications and trauma therapy to understand and heal from the effects of narcissistic abuse .
If you are involved with a pathological narcissist, and even if you're not sure, you are probably feeling confused, uncertain and most likely (because you are here!) at your "wits end". Narcissistic abuse is REAL and difficult to heal from on your own. Our brains are "plastic" and become "damaged" from the "Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde" behaviours of reward and punishment from the personality impaired individual we've tried hard to accommodate, causing us relentless internal conflict (I want to leave/I cannot leave). I will help discern what you've encountered, how to deal with it, and how to move forward. For more info: www.marthadigby.com

**WAITLIST ONLY** Experiencing trauma and violence shapes us and leaves us with lingering difficult emotions, so that it can feel impossible to imagine moving through to the other side. Maybe you feel ashamed and you're not able to share your experience with those close to you. Maybe you feel guilty about what happened and you find yourself constantly imagining what you could have done differently. Maybe you feel angry at the injustice of your experience and the impact it has had on your life. I understand. I see you. What happened to you is not your fault.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
