We are so glad you’ve found us! We believe that all people have the innate capacity to heal. We understand how trauma and difficult life events impact daily living. We use holistic, integrated, and somatic (body-focused) approaches to facilitate the transformation of trauma and trauma resolution into healing growth and resilience.
Our team of therapists at Valley Art Therapy is ready to provide support as you work through life's challenges. Guided by a client-centered, strength-based approach to therapy, we create a safe, respectful and non-judgmental setting in which you can explore issues, gain insights, and experience growth and healing. No matter your stage of life, toddlers to seniors, we have a therapist suited to your needs.
We are honoured to support you in your healing journey!
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is well known for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and has also been used to effectively treat a wide range of mental health issues, like anxiety and panic attacks, depression, phobias, sleep problems, complicated grief, and addictions.
Reducing barriers to accessing therapy services is of the utmost importance to us! We are pleased to offer a variety of therapy options so that clients can receive excellent services close to home without having to travel to larger centres. Along with online sessions, or meeting in-person at our Birtle or Russell offices, we also have partnered with agencies and school divisions to have our therapists provide services in other communities. If you’d like to discuss having Valley Art Therapy come to your community, give our office a call!
