How We Can Help

Most people will seek a counselor, psychotherapist, or coach because they want to change something about their lives, transforming negative aspects and growing positive ones.The FOCUS² team will help you overcome issues that are causing discomfort or pain. We provide a safe and regular space for you to talk about difficult and private topics so you can explore what they mean or how you can enhance your life. Our foundation and philosophy is to support you and respect your views. We may share relevant information about evidenced based research or the science of one’s nervous system, but we are not experts on your life and will never tell you what to do.

Through interactive, dynamic and collaborative conversations, we hope to create opportunities for personal insight. You may develop different perceptions of your problems, or you may also explore and hone skills for alternative ways of coping with life’s challenges. At FOCUS², we believe that early life events can imprint our coping strategies and impact our personality. Sometimes, habit forming or repetitive behaviours feel hard to change. Your work with FOCUS² will help you identify and practice new responses to old issues.

Individual Counseling

One-on-one sessions with a counselor, psychotherapist or coach. People often ask what the difference is between these three titles or styles of working? Sarah Breidenbach, director at FOCUS², offers her understanding and discernment between them.

Couples Counseling

One-on-one sessions together with your significant other and a counselor to focus on relevant topics and challenges such as communication, conflict resolution, sex life, decision making, differences in values, etc.


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a mindfulness based psychotherapy about accepting emotional and physical discomfort while moving towards values based actions in your life. ACT does not aim to reduce symptoms or control emotions. ACT promotes the idea that people, and their psychological experience, are not a thing that’s broken.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is an effective and comprehensive therapeutic framework which allows people to process recent or historical trauma. Trauma is not determined by an evaluation of the event itself, but by the emotional and physical experience of the event. Trauma is what happens on the inside of a person and can create painful patterns that keep happening.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a well-established therapeutic approach with some newer versions of it that incorporate compassion and mindfulness. The framework teaches people to notice their cognition (another word for thoughts) at particularly emotional or behaviourally difficult times. Then, you will learn to challenge those thoughts or behaviors to create new emotional and psychological outcomes.
Mindfulness is a key ingredient to effective counseling and provides greater psychological flexibility. At its origin, mindfulness comes from Buddhist meditation practices that grow a heightened state of sensory awareness and the space to observe activity of the mind and body with more distance and objectivity.
Emotional Freedom Technique uses a combination of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has been referred to as acupuncture without the needles. By tapping on acupressure points, you activate energy channels while talking with the counselor about any particular area of mental or physical distress. The combined actions allow for emotional discharge and new perspectives or truths to emerge.

Psychobiological Approach To Couples Therapy is a fusion of attachment theory, developmental neuroscience, and arousal regulation developed by Dr. Stan Tatkin. PACT has the reputation for treating some of the most challenging couples.
