  Individuals or couples using the independent adoption approach are required to complete an Adoption Home Study. The primary concern in doing a Home Study is the child's well-being. An adoption Home Study provides the prospective adoptive parents with an opportunity to prepare for the adoptive parenting experience by discussing concerns and issues with our certified Independent Adoption Practitioner.

We have specialized training in current trauma treatment methods, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Eye Movement Integration (EMI), and Somatic Experiencing. Traumatic incidents that may be treated using these methods include:
.........sexual assault
.........motor vehicle accidents

.........injuries and surgeries

  We are experienced practitioners, teachers, trainers and public speakers. In addition to traditional counselling services, we will develop programs, seminars and workshops to meet specific needs.
  Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a body awareness approach to trauma recovery. SE is based upon the extensive research of Dr. P. Levine who recognized that people have the ability to overcome the effects of trauma through increased awareness of the sensations resulting from traumatic experiences.
  EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is used for individuals who have experienced trauma that is unresolved. Through an 8 step protocol involving bilateral sensory input (including side to side eye movements), the client is able to process distressing memories, reduce traumatic effects, and develop more adaptive coping skills.

We have specialized training in C.I.S.M. and offer defusing and debriefing follow-up to those exposed to acute crisis in the line of duty.
