Welcome. Working with a therapist provides the opportunity to explore the things that truly matter to you. Through uncovering the stumbling blocks and triggers that prevent you from being the best version of yourself, we will collaborate together to create self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance - and we will work together to determine new avenues to accomplish tangible goals that align with your values.
Life’s challenges can certainly throw us off track, make us feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. We cannot undermine the painful reality of one’s experience of depression, anxiety, stress, loneliness, loss, trauma, relationship strife, and other mental health concerns. Don’t go through your hard times alone. I offer a healing, non-judgmental, safe space for you to explore your life experiences, the influences that have contributed to who you are today, and those that continue to challenge you. Giving consideration to the whole you is an integral part of the therapeutic process – including those aspects that are painful and deeply imbedded, as well as your strengths, resources and aspirations.
My approach is not to pathologize people. Instead of seeing deficits, I see strengths and potential that may be blocked due to reactions to hurtful events in your life. You are the agent of wholeness and healing. Through sincere curiosity, empathic listening, and applying an integrative therapeutic approach that tailors the therapy to your needs and preferences, together we can work to pave the way to a brighter future for yourself.
Small, consistent steps, or ‘micro-changes’, lead to remarkable, enduring results that occur over time. Take the first step. Let’s begin the journey together. Let’s begin your journey to building contentment, inner peace, resilience, and a healthier state of mind.
Therapeutic modalities utilized:
Given that individual’s needs change over time, my therapeutic approach tends to be client-centred and integrative. Through a client-centred lens, I will encourage you to become more self-aware, and to improve your ability to use self-direction to make positive changes, increase clarity, and boost self-reliance. With active, empathic listening, I tailor each session to your needs, which may change from session-to-session, and even within a session, depending on what is being discussed. This may entail an integration of different therapeutic approaches, or the use of one approach, based on what you are experiencing at the time.
The therapeutic modalities that I often find helpful and frequently utilize, include: Narrative Therapy, CBT, Attachment-based, Emotion-Focused, Existential, Acceptance and Commitment, Strengths-based, Relational, and Solutions-focused. To each of these approaches, I bring a caring and compassionate lens, and I often interject Mindfulness-based considerations where appropriate.
