Working from a person-centered approach, I view each client as a unique individual with a story and a context. I seek to collaborate with each person to help them reach their treatment goals and achieve lasting difference in their lives.
It is my desire to make each person feel comfortable and provide a safe space for them to talk through the difficulties that they are facing. I understand that each person is unique and I strive to draw on the strengths that they bring to the counselling journey.
Depending on the needs of each person, I draw from various counselling theories including EMDR, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), or a Psychodynamic approach. I believe that insight – understanding why it is that we do what we do; getting to the root of a problem – can often be very helpful in creating a context for change.
At the core of helpful therapy is connection. It is an opportunity for clients to share their story and work towards their therapy goals in a safe space with my support. I consider it a great privilege to come alongside each person and be a witness to their story.
