The decision to seek therapy can be a significant investment of time, money, and courage therefore I am committed to ensuring my work with clients is geared toward meeting their needs. My overarching goal as a therapist is to ensure clients feel safe in their encounter with me and I do this by taking a client centred approach of acceptance, empathy and authenticity. As your therapist, you can expect this consistency in my approach regardless of your goals, circumstances, and resources.
I am passionate about supporting adults, young adults, and youth/teens struggling with various mental health challenges with a focus on understanding each client’s personal experiences. I utilize my experience as a crisis helpline responder and my business background to support clients with their self-exploration, personal growth and development and being a life-long learner, I continually seek additional training and clinical supervision to ensure my practice remains appropriate and effective.
I support (but am not limited to) individuals facing the following areas of concern:
Managing Emotions/Emotional Regulation
Issues related to cultural identity / spirituality
Assertiveness & Confidence
Life goals and direction
I utilize (but am not limited to) the following treatment approaches in working clients:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Solutions Focused Therapy (SBT)
Insight-Oriented Talk Therapy
I can also engage in other treatment approaches according to the nature of your presenting problem(s) and client suitability (i.e., client personality, individual needs and preferences). I look forward to working with you and the privilege of being a part of your personal development.
