There has historically been a rather contentious relationship between the field of psychology and organized religion. We are passionate about breaking down the false dichotomy that they should not or cannot co-exist and will work with you to incorporate your beliefs and traditions; honouring the strength and value that they provide in enriching our lives. Whatever your faith background or denomination, if your faith beliefs impact your current experience, we offer a completely open and non-judgemental environment to explore and clarify your thoughts and will honour and incorporate your faith practices.
Anxiety is so much more complicated than being stressed about something. Empirically supported best practices guide treatment for anxiety including addressing both the physiological (body based) and cognitive (thought based) components of anxiety. With strategies to reality-test the negative and intrusive thoughts, paired with emotional and physiological regulation, CBT and DBT pair up to create a significant improvement in symptoms. While anxiety tends to be quite biologically based, symptoms CAN be well managed. With the anxiety out of the way, you can go back to living unencumbered and being your true self.

You have so much more to offer. Book with Madelaine >
