therapeutic approaches


COVID-19 UPDATE: You can access therapeutic services safely in-person or virtually (video or phone).

At Solace Psychology, we believe in treating the individual as a whole, meaning that we will work together to achieve overall life balance and wellness. Depending on your needs and preferences our Psychologists will use a variety of evidence-based approaches, as we do not believe in the "one approach fits all" perspective. We all bring unique strengths and challenges to the table and it is important to honour these. Your Psychologist will work with you to establish goals for therapy and a roadmap, so that you feel comfortable and at ease with the process.

   Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen. - Brené Brown

Person-Centered Therapy

Our Psychologists primarily work from a person-centered approach, meaning that we will meet you where you are at in your healing journey. Our job is to guide and walk along side you as you discover your inner strengths and capabilities. Our work will be grounded in respect, non-judgment, acceptance, and trust. No matter what you are going through, we are here to help you find your way through.

Approaches That Our Psychologists Draw Upon:

Children express their emotional experiences and needs through creative methods using art and play. Play is the language of children, so when we use play in therapy, we can get a glimpse into a child’s inner world. Read more…

CBT is the gold-standard treatment approach for anxiety, depression, and other mental disorders. Research shows that CBT can even be more effective than medication, and have longer-lasting effects. CBT teaches you how to break the cycle of negative, distorted thinking that often leads to emotional distress and unhealthy behaviours, like isolation and avoidance. You will learn valuable tools to rewire your brain and change how you view yourself and your future. Read more…

If you describe yourself as highly emotional or moody, are easily triggered, and tend to have ongoing crisis situations, DBT may be the right fit for you. DBT teaches you how to manage distress, express your emotions effectively, live in the present moment, and rebuild meaningful relationships with those you love. Read more…

EFT draws on attachment and love in relationships. You and your loved one will learn how to change the way you both respond to each other to foster a healthier, more effective communication pattern. You both will learn how to really understand each other’s perspectives, as well as support and comfort each other in ways that really work. Trust, emotional safety, and comfort are all strengthened as you attend therapy together.

EMDR is the first line treatment for healing from emotional distress relate to past trauma (or PTSD symptomology). EMDR heals the core of your pain so that your past does not continue to trigger and distress you. Read more…

The Gottman Method Couples Therapy was developed by world-renowned psychologists Julie and John Gottman. Based on 40+ years of clinical experience and intensive research on relationships, the Gottman method is an evidence-based and scientifically sound therapy that provides couples with specific tools to help them build the foundation for a lasting relationship. In Gottman couples therapy we focus on emotion, skill-building for managing conflict, developing new skills for enhancing friendship, and creating a system of shared meaning. Read more…

Mindfulness  and meditation allow you to slow down and recharge, so that you can focus on how you are actually doing. As you allow yourself space to let go of daily stressors, you can become anchored in the present moment. This brings you to a place of being grounded, calm, and at peace. Read more…
