Are you living the life of your dreams, but still suffer? Or feel that you aren't living the life that feels right on the inside? Fear, anxiety and depression don’t have to run your life, dictate your decisions or create your future. 

Sally-Anne Haug, MA, RCC, Certified EMDR Therapist 


As we work collaboratively, I will utilize a strength-based, client centred approach to the therapeutic process, incorporating direction from you. To do this successfully, I integrate Eye Movement & Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and Solution Focused modalities to support your holistic needs and personal goals. I will also teach you simple strategies and easy techniques to help you stay in the present. I have worked with culturally diverse populations in a variety of settings to support with concerns related to depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, relationships and other life challenges. The ultimate goal is to help you resolve challenges and lead you to a more fulfilling life.

I welcome you to get in touch with me here 

Heather VanStarkenburg, RSW, Certified EMDR Therapist

I specialize in working with trauma for adult survivors, PTSD, addiction and mental illness utilizing EMDR and IFS. I seek to offer a safe place for healing and growth, and utilize client strengths to reach their goals. Further, I am open to holistic spiritual modalities, from the client's preference.

Every person faces life challenges on their journey, and there are times we need to reach out for help. I work with adults for healing, to meet personal goals and achieve recovery. Along with EMDR and IFS, I am open to spirituality from the client's preference. I support clients to not just survive, but to thrive. Please contact me for a free consultation.

Rice Fields
Seeking therapy is a brave decision. That first courageous step is the start of an exploration of how one's own mind works and adapts when under threat, often in an 'old' way that can be challenged and changed.
