Evidence-based therapy for children, teens & adults

If you or your child has experienced trauma at any stage in life, you may feel stuck—like you’re in a cycle from which you can’t emerge. Trauma-focused therapy can help you get unstuck—and move forward with healthy attachments and firm relationships.

At Treehouse Trauma Centre, we offer evidence-based therapeutic approaches that help you uncover your inner ability to live life fully engaged and whole—at any age.

Trauma-focused therapy can help you get unstuck—and move forward with healthy attachments and firm relationships.

Evidence-based therapy for children, teens & adults

THERAPY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN

Often, young children don’t know how to express themselves with words. We use play therapies—sand or rice tray, stories, expressive art, dolls, blocks, board games and more—to help children share what’s happening. When children’s hands are busy, their brains are free to process deep emotional issues. Using fidget toys, balls and movement helps facilitate the process.
To address profound trauma and help children process emotionally difficult memories, we use Lifespan Integration Therapy,Observed & Experiential Integration, and body-based therapy. Feel free to ask us about these modalities in the parent onboarding session.

THERAPY FOR PRETEENS

Older children and preteens often feel trapped between childhood and adolescence. To help them navigate this challenging age we use a combination of play and talk therapies—which engages both the child and the teen inside of them. Therapeutic approaches include story cubes, the sand tray, Socratic dialogue, reflective listening and mindfulness.

 

THERAPY FOR TEENS

For many teenagers, the comfort or nostalgia of childhood pulls against the fear of being viewed as childish. This tension makes it difficult for teens to respond to traditional therapy. We use talk therapy paired with fidget toys or a sand tray to let their inner child know that it’s safe to open up–and safe for them to make their own decisions.
A key development milestone for teens is finding their place in the world as a differentiated individual. We help them take this important leap with reflective listening and mindfulness.

 

TRAUMA THERAPY

Experiencing trauma at any stage of life can leave you feeling like you’re stuck in a rut, or a cycle you can’t get past. Trauma-focused therapy can help you get unstuck and finally begin to move forward.
Our three-phase approach to trauma therapy (safety building, trauma processing and integration) will gently guide you on the path to healing and wholeness.
