I practice from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) lens with all my clients to assist in making behavioural and emotional changes. I also incorporate mindfulness, solution-focused and person-centred approaches in my work.
What makes me different than other therapists?
When I’m looking for a counsellor I want to know that the person I choose is not only educated but also has experienced challenges. I want to know that they will be able to understand where I’m coming from. Although I have not experienced exactly what you are going through, I have lived through many difficulties and can empathize with you. You are seeking me out because you need help with your relationships, emotions or behaviours and I do not take that responsibility lightly. I welcome all ages, gender identities, sexual orientations and racial identities into an affirming and empowering space where you can be both safe and brave to explore your emotions and experiences.
I believe that people need connection and often this is at the root of why we experience feelings of emptiness, loneliness, distress, anger and worthlessness. Asking for help is not weakness- it shows great strength, courage and resilience.
