"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going"
Foothills Counselling Psychology offers Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and DBT Skills Groups for both adults and adolescents, DBT Phone Coaching, Trauma Therapy, Telephone Counselling, and Couples Counselling in Turner Valley and Bragg Creek.
Individual counselling for both adults and adolescents age 15 years and older. Initial sessions of 80 minutes in duration are recommended to allow adequate time for assessment, rapport building, and the setting of therapy goals. Sessions, however, are available either on a 50 minute or 80 minutes basis, depending on your preferences or needs. For instance, some individuals prefer longer sessions and feel they get more out of the session when they have more time per visit. Others find 50 minute sessions to be more practical or affordable. You can choose to book what works best for you.
Individual trauma therapy for adults using either Prolonged Exposure for PTSD (PE) or Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). You will get to choose which trauma treatment is best for you. Trauma specific therapy requires longer sessions (80 minutes) to allow time for exposure work and processing.

Telephone coaching is typically a short 15-20 minute phone intervention to help you effectively use skills or navigate a current challenging situations. Receiving timely coaching and support can be effective at helping you practice and generalize new skills you have learned. I will contact you within a 24 hour period from the time of your call requesting coaching.
