Compassionate Connections Therapeutic & Consulting Services

At Compassionate Connections we are committed to providing safe, family based care.  Given the recent increase in COVID-19 cases we are monitoring and adhering to public health guidelines and changes.  Currently, these guidelines suggest that in most cases we should continue to offer telehealth services, but allow for some limited face-to-face sessions based on the needs of individual clients. 

 The current guidelines do state that initial appointments should be held virtually, and that the potential need for face-to-face care can be discussed and determined at that initial virtual meeting. In keeping with these guidelines, initial appointments will continue to be held virtually at this time. If you are a current client and have any questions about this process, please discuss your concerns with your clinician. If you are a new client, wanting to self-refer to our practice, please click on the ‘How to Book’ tab on our website, or contact us at (902) 530-6565.

As your therapist our role is to provide hope, support and guidance during the most difficult of times.

Main Therapeutic Approaches

Emotion Focused Family Therapy

The philosophy of Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is to support caregivers to increase their role in their loved one’s recovery from mental health issues. As an EFFT clinician, we believe that empowering parents to help their children, regardless of age, is the most successful approach to overcoming a variety of mental health concerns. Thus, our main responsibility is to support parents and caregivers to become active agents of healing, and to increase their involvement in helping their child to process underlying emotions that may be contributing to problematic thoughts, behaviors and symptoms.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is used to assist you in learning how to identify your thoughts, feelings, behaviors and physical sensations. It is used to help teach strategies around shifting unhelpful thinking patterns and applying problem solving skills to to the difficult situations you are experiencing. It is a structured and specific approach that requires active and collaborative efforts from both the client and therapist.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.The goal of ACT is to create a rich and meaningful life, while accepting the pain that inevitably goes with it
