I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I have a Masters of Arts in Counselling from Yorkville University and a Masters of Science in Health Psychology from the University of Bath in the UK. I have additional training and certification in The Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM)®, a trauma therapy model that employs brain-based physiological safety as the foundation for healing. I work with adults and teenagers in individual counselling.
My approach to counselling is through understanding both the science and the human experience of the Stress Response, which I believe is the main obstacle to experiencing life fully. What happens in the mind and body when feeling threatened challenges our ability to form the relationships that we want and deserve. My approach is based on this belief that it is our ability to create and maintain healthy relationships at work, with our friends, families, partners and children that have the most impact to our daily functioning and well being. And that healthy relationships with others begins with healthy relationships with ourselves.
I also believe that through the empowerment of the self, my clients can access personal resources and solutions to obstacles and confusions, which play a role in keeping them feeling "stuck", and repeating similar patterns throughout their lives. I work with clients to overcome the obstacles created by their Stress Response and have expertise in areas which include (but are not limited to):
Having been the witness of a traumatic event
Living and/ or working in a generally stressful environment
Struggling with shame, guilt, or low self-esteem/confidence
Improving sports performance
Repeated struggles with unhealthy relationships
Deepening and improving current relationships
Therapy modalities I utilize:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Solutions Focused Therapy (SFT)
I am additionally experienced in working with adults who struggle with addiction/dependency issues, trauma, anxiety and personality disorders across a wide age range and diverse cultures.
I provide therapy in English and Romanian.
