Your Well-Being Is in Good Hands
I focus on helping adults clearly define and reach their personal wellness goals from a holistic perspective - the mind and body are connected in subtle and amazing ways. Realizing that each person is unique in both their challenges and strengths, therapy is molded around individualized needs. We will work together to identify and promote your strengths and resources to cope with the issues or difficulties that concern you. Many therapeutic approaches are found to be helpful in supporting and guiding individuals and families through life's challenges. I have a compassionate and strengths based approach when working with individuals. In addition to other interventions and techniques, I have found that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an extremely useful approach when working with a wide variety of concerns. I work collaboratively with my clients to set goals and move towards personal wellness.
ALL ABOUT THERAPY
Learn About My Methods
All clients are unique therefore therapy needs to be tailored to address their individual needs. I work from a Strength-based, Trauma Informed perspective focusing on a person's internal strengths and resourcefulness. Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy are models I use quite regularly in my practice.
SERVICES I OFFER
With You Every Step of the Way
Individual Counselling is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist in a safe, caring and confidential environment to explore their feelings, beliefs, values and behaviours.
Though grief is natural, many of us can get lost in the grieving process. In grief and loss therapy, I will work with you and your unique situation to navigate through your loss in a healthy way.
