Conditions We Support
Adults Dealing with Childhood Trauma
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Do you struggle with social communication or interactions? Does this impact your ability to form relationships or friendships? Do you engage in repetitive patterns or interests? Autism Spectrum Disorder can present very differently in different people. Many people with high-functioning autism go through much of their lives without knowing they have it. However, being diagnosed with ASD can provide a sense of relief.
With therapy, you can better understand yourself and your subconscious tendencies. Together, we can work to develop your social skills, and improve communication, self-care, and organization. Book an appointment and see if therapy may be right for you.
Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder
Do you have difficulty regulating your emotions? Do you engage in impulsive or self-destructive behaviours? Do you find it difficult to form and maintain interpersonal relationships?
People with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) often feel empty, have a fear of abandonment, and are unsettled about their identity or sense of self. It’s common for there to be extreme fluctuations in mood over a short period of time. It can also be difficult to form relationships as people with BPD struggle to trust others, or their fear of rejection or abandonment prevents them from getting close at all.
Therapy can help individuals with BPD regulate their emotions, develop interpersonal skills, build boundaries, and learn to communicate more effectively. It can also help individuals explore their sense of self so they can work towards better self-esteem and self-worth. If you’re looking for support or believe you may have BPD, reach out. Our team is here to support you.
Boundary Setting & Communication Challenges
Chronic Pain or Illness
Do you often feel disconnected from reality?
Dissociative disorders can cause you to feel detached from yourself/your body, lead to a feeling that what is around you is unreal or distorted, lead to confusion around your identity, or result in memory loss or gaps in memory. You may feel emotionally numb and have difficulty expressing your emotions. Although there are various causes of dissociation, it is commonly experienced in response to stressful situations, abuse, and trauma. Therapy can help you process traumatic experiences, provide you with the tools and skills to manage dissociation, and learn to identify your sense of self. Find your way back to reality with Reclaim Your Nature Psychotherapy.
Grief and Loss
The stress and uncertainty of trying to conceive and undergoing fertility treatments is profoundly triggering. Our emotions can take us on a ride: we feel things such as fear, sadness, regret, anger, jealousy, and frustration cycling through us. Social events, public places, and even our workplaces can become full of triggers, as other people’s pregnancies and babies seem omnipresent.
When we work with clients experiencing infertility, we emphasise effective coping strategies, emotional management, and helping clients navigate the myriad of treatment and medical decisions that are sometimes involved. We work with all types of prospective parents, including single parents-to-be, same-sex couples, adoptive parents, and people who are experiencing secondary infertility (difficulty conceiving the second child). We are here to support you as you navigate the emotions and thoughts resulting from infertility.
Navigating Life Transitions
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Physical, Emotional or Sexual Abuse
Has your experience with abuse kept you from living with any type of normalcy?
The effects of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse can be devastating and far-reaching. Victims of this type of trauma often experience feelings of guilt, shame, depression, anger, fear, and isolation. They may also have difficulty trusting others or forming intimate relationships. All these challenges can make it difficult to cope with day-to-day life.
Therapy can be a powerful tool for helping you heal from abuse. We can provide a safe space for you to process difficult emotions and experiences, and we can help create strategies for managing anxiety, developing self-esteem, and forming healthier relationships. When you’re ready to take the first step towards healing – we can help.
Are you having difficulty with life after having a baby? Adapting to motherhood can be a monumental task due to immense physical changes and severe changes in lifestyle. Not only did your body just create a human, but you may experience a lack of sleep, hormonal changes, financial stress, and even labour and delivery trauma. If your baby experienced complications during delivery or spent time in the NICU, these circumstances may have overwhelmed you. Postpartum depression can make you feel like you are not yourself and interfere with enjoying your new baby. It can feel incongruent when you feel like you should be feeling good, but you experience low mood, feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or apathy. You may also be unable to use your typical self-care techniques because of being busy and isolated. Postpartum depression may occur within the first few months after delivery or begin a few months after.
Postpartum therapy can give you an opportunity to express your feelings and thoughts, provide you emotional support and coping strategies. Motherhood is not meant to be experienced alone and we are here to support you.
