Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Treatment modalities offered include CBT, EMDR, Brainspotting, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, DBT and mindfulness based therapies. Therapy is tailored to the multifaceted experiences and needs of each individual and evidence based treatment modalities are provided in an environment of collaboration and safety. Sarah values providing a healing space that is non-judgmental and informed by the inherent connection between the body, mind and spirit, and the imperishable self wisdom that lies within.
Kim works with children, teens, families, caregivers and adults who experience a wide range of mental health issues. Kim has experience working with children and youth with anxiety, depression and emotional regulation as well as with parents and caregivers to provide strategies to support those in their care. Parenting can be a difficult job at times and can lead to individuals developing their own mental health concerns. I also provide individual therapy for those wanting to focus on their needs outside of their parenting role.
