Dr. Guindon provides DBT skills training groups for teens and transitional age youth who want to better regulate their emotions and feel more peaceful.
Trauma Therapy &
With the burgeoning field of neurobiology, we now know that mental health problems, relationship difficulties, and problems with functioning in everyday life are largely influenced by traumatic or ongoing stressful experiences that we experienced in our past, usually in childhood. These kinds of experiences can overwhelm our brain's ability to cope, alter our brain's structure, and affect us long after the experiences end.
Trauma counselling and PTSD treatment gets to the root of the problem and heals trauma wounding.
