My first priority with a client is establishing a working relationship that is safe, reliable and growth promoting for the client. To that end, I believe that collaboration in identifying the goal for therapy and the means to reach that goal are important components of a client's growth towards self-sufficiency. I conceptualize therapy issues from a development and psychodynamic perspective. In terms of techniques I select from a repertoire of interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and solution focused tools. This depends on the needs of the client.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Transitions. I have extensive experience facilitating clients' growth through life stages and transitions in the areas of career, relationships, identity, and loss. I see many of the points where individuals get stuck in their lives coming at points of transition whether or not they are voluntary. The positive is that by assisting clients with navigating these points in their life the likelihood of successfully dealing with future moments of transition are more likely. As a middle-aged woman, I have had my share of transitions to deal with and find this experiential learning has increased my empathy with clients.
