Couples Therapy

Sometimes relationships go through tumultuous periods. Often conflict or patterns cannot be resolved without asking for professional help. We do not just see couples and work with each individual, but instead help in repairing the relationship to increase congruent and respectful communication, find hope and deeper connection. With experience working with couples we will assist in the healing you are both looking for.         

Individual Counselling
Addictions

Do you live with or love someone who is struggling to stay sober or can not stop acting out? Do you find yourself trying to help your loved one stop using and then find yourself in the vicious cycle of having hope it will change, followed by more disappointment and fear? Have you told yourself you will stop and can’t? Or maybe you can for a period but then find yourself doing in again and feeling a new sense of hopelessness? Often without professional help, nothing gets better. 

Trauma

A physiological, emotional and sometimes physical reaction to stress, trauma reaction can occur after an extremely stressful event. It can also occur from a number of stressful events or consistent patterns of stress. Often unresolved trauma can manifest in other problematic behaviours and feelings, creating more helplessness, emotional pain, fear, and confusion. Willow Branch is trained in multiple treatment modalities for trauma.

Services

Through a collaborative process between you and your therapist to facilitate change, you will explore the meaning of life circumstances and improve your quality of life. You can engage in counselling for any reason. Willow Branch has expertise in multiple areas including grief, anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, family of origin issues, abuse, sexuality, emotions management, communication, relationships and finding personal purpose and awareness. 

Sex Addiction/Compulsions

Affecting individuals, spouses, families, and relationships, sexual addiction is best described as an intimacy disorder characterized by compulsive sexual acts and/or thoughts. This can include, but not limited to compulsive use of pornography, phone and computer sex services, sex for hire and impulsive affairs. Sexual addiction and its consequences impact the individual, but also traumatize the spouses, children, employers, and relationships of the individual. 

Online Therapy
Family Therapy
Interventions

Would you like your family to be closer? Communicate better? Stop some of the cycles of conflict when members yearn for connection from the ones they love the most? Jade is a systemic therapist trained in working with the whole family system, bringing clarity, reconciliation, and congruency to families impacted by systemic pain and the associated maladaptive coping. As systemic therapists, we believe there is a deep yearning for all families to find systemic help. 

Although might think that online therapy can not replace in person connection, some people may prefer to engage in therapy online. Some of the reasons people might choose or want this option can be life circumstances,  isolation due to employment, lack of trained professionals in their current location or specialized services being offered by the therapist. Using state of the art technology to maintain confidentiality and professionalism, Willow Branch provides quality services online. We do this while maintaining the same connection, warmth and structure you would find if you were sitting in our office. 

Addiction is more frequent than you might think. People often tend to think it won’t happen to them or their families, but the reality is that addiction is a common occurrence given the struggles of today’s society. Individuals facing addiction frequently try to hide their problem, make light of the situation, or use denial to deal with the struggles they encounter – but for most, the problem just doesn’t go away. Families often follow these same coping mechanisms when faced with seeing the effects of addiction on their loved ones. Without professional help, the problem usually becomes worse over time, never better.
