That is why our primary role is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive space for you to be heard and understood. Additionally, we provide you with the tools, strategies, and insight you need to make personal changes happen.

Pregnancy, Postpartum, & Loss
While many women experience ups and downs during or after the birth of a child, 15-20% can experience more challenging symptoms. For example, increased irritability, panicky or anxious, feeling "out of control" or having upsetting thoughts can be signs of perinatal mood disorders. As a result, our therapists provide medically evidenced therapies such as CBT and IPT to help individuals during the perinatal period.
Pain can be invisible to everyone except the one experiencing it. Some people close to us may not understand the physical and emotional tole chronic pain can have on us. Coupled with lack of understanding, expectations and things we used to be able to do, pain can feel even harder to live with. Although this may be true, so is the fact that we provide psychotherapy services that help individuals learn how to help them pace themselves, communicate their limits and grieve their losses.
Trauma: PTSD, Complex & Developmental Trauma
Christina Janiga is a certified clinical trauma professional providing psychotherapy services in Burlington and online. Likewise she provides clinical supervision to her team to further help individuals suffering with trauma symptoms. Trauma can come in various different ways. From events such as pandemics, abuse to accidents. At the same time, trauma can also be a build up of smaller or less pronounced events. Consequently, both can have emotional and psychological effects. Because of this, our team primarily provides trauma-informed psychotherapy services focusing on safety and stabilization.
There isn't a one size fits all type of therapy that works for each individual. That is why we provide various psychotherapy services and treatments. Through assessing goals we tailor the treatment plan to your symptoms, specific needs and wants. That way you can get back to doing what you love.
