M.A. in Counselling Psychology, Registered Psychotherapist
Seeking help is not easy and requires bravery. It is the first step towards greater life satisfaction. When you seek therapy, you are taking action in your own healing journey.
When I provide psychotherapy, I tailor my approach with a holistic focus, and base it on your needs. You are the expert in your own life, and I believe that everyone has the answers within them; sometimes they just need some guidance and a compassionate, non-judgmental space to find them. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-based approaches, Motivational Interviewing, Polyvagal theory, and Rapid Resolution Therapy, among others.
Having an extensive background working with individuals diagnosed with a mental illness, I have a deep understanding of how various mental illnesses can impact all areas of life. I can help individuals learn the skills and techniques to manage illness symptoms and medication side effects. Other areas of mental health experience include working with anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, grief, self-esteem and others. It is my goal to work in partnership with you, to fully understand where you are at, where you want to be, and to help you get there.
When not providing psychotherapy, you will find me enjoying nature, reading, or spending time with my loved ones, including my cats. I look forward to meeting you and helping you gain more life satisfaction.
