Your Healing Partner
Welcome to my EMDR therapy practice. I'm Sally-Anne, a passionate and dedicated therapist with a profound commitment to helping individuals overcome the effects of trauma in order to lead more fulfilling lives. I understand that seeking therapy is a courageous step and I'm honoured to be a part of your healing journey.
My journey in the field of trauma therapy began with a deep sense of empathy and a desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who have experienced trauma. I continue to pursue extensive training in EMDR therapy, recognizing it as a transformative approach for healing emotional wounds and stay current with developments in the field of trauma therapy.
Sally-Anne Haug, MA, RCC, Certified EMDR Therapist
During my 30+ years in the public mental health field, I have learned that most people can work through challenges, yet at times, benefit from being reminded of our strengths and what we deserve in order to thrive. My professional opportunities piqued my interest in mental health and confirmed my desire to complete my Masters of Arts degree at the University of Victoria. Since completing my MA, I have worked with Vancouver Island Health Authority delivering services as an Addiction Clinician, Mental Health & Substance Use Consultant, Single Session Therapist and Access & Crisis Response Clinician and for my private practice.
My career opportunities add to my practice, however I believe that it is my personal experiences and the empathy that comes from walking my own path of healing that have shaped me into the therapist I am today. I understand the power of therapy firsthand and am committed to sharing that power with you.
Why Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy?
EMDR is at the heart of my practice because it has proven to be a remarkably effective method for addressing trauma, depression, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, grief, loss, disassociation, performance anxiety and relationship challenges. With EMDR, we can work together to process the memories and emotions that may be holding you back. This evidence-based approach is not just about healing; it's about reclaiming your life and experiencing a renewed sense of self.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in compassion, understanding, and collaboration. I believe in the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship built on trust, respect and non-judgment. Together, we'll create a safe and nurturing space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences at your own pace.
I'm deeply committed to trauma-informed care, ensuring that every aspect of our work together is centered on your well-being and empowerment. I'll guide you through the EMDR process, helping you navigate the challenges and celebrate the victories along the way.
