A Healing Journey

Welcome to A Healing Journey Trauma Therapy Services

Individual, Marriage and Family Therapy

Anne Whitford Fast, BA MA MMFT


Anne's experience allows her to offer effective individualized care for the whole person, couple or family. Anne is able to offer support for a number of personal struggles and issues, by providing a calm grounded presence to individuals, families, and couples.  The focus in therapy is to help people heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths in order to live a life that feels more fully alive and connected. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan.  


Treatment Focus and areas of specialization

Anne's areas of interest, training and specialization include reprocessing and releasing traumatic energy stuck in the nervous system, whether you are struggling with anxiety, grief and loss, medical trauma, depression or existential and spiritual suffering. Anne uses an Interpersonal Neurobiological framework, focusing on attachment, self-regulation, mindfulness and EMDR to help clients cope with everyday struggles and release old patterns that keep people stuck in order to live more fully present.


A Commitment to Clients

A Healing Journey Counselling Services commits to being there for you throughout your journey, and to work as hard as you do to help you reach your therapeutic goals. Anne's goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. If you discover at any point in your journey that this is not the right therapeutic match for you, Anne will assist you in finding a more appropriate therapist to suit your needs.

All are Welcome: Diversity is honored here

Our therapy services are open to all; individuals, families, cultures, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, relationship statuses, religious (or non)/spiritual traditions, abilities and social statuses. Anne will do her best to meet your needs without judgement. If Anne cannot meet your therapeutic needs she will help you find a therapist with a specialization that is right for you.

Our Therapy

Depression & Anxiety


Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through trauma reprocessing therapy (EMDR), you can recover motivation, perspective, a sense of meaning, purpose, connection and joy that we all deserve. 


Trauma & PTSD


Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger after traumatic events. We can help you process your difficult experiences to relieve these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 




Relationship, couples or family therapy can be beneficial to couples and families who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and families, or individuals looking to work on relationship building skills. Therapy is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationships.
