My Approach to Helping
It is hard to keep a bunch of balls in the air. If you’re dealing with a lot of different stressors and feel like life is coming at you faster than you can handle, know that it’s not just you. Many people experience feelings of being overwhelmed, stuck or lost in the face of so many demands. When coupled with a harsh inner critic, this juggling act can render you doubtful about the direction you’re moving in and your ability to make decisions.
Therapy can seem intimidating, but it is an important step toward better mental health. It takes strength, courage and commitment to acknowledge that there are parts of yourself and your life that you would like to change. This may include concerns about your responsibilities, work-life balance, depression, anxiety, isolation, relationships and personal growth. I can help you gain a greater understanding of yourself, your experiences and your past and present contexts. Together, we can examine how you developed behaviours that were useful in the past but are not anymore, and which ones would be helpful now.
I work with clients in a way that is supportive, authentic and collaborative. Although therapy can be difficult, I find one of the ways to make it more comfortable is to know that it’s okay to laugh and find humour in it. I use creativity to adapt therapies to suit your needs and flexibility in trying strategies until we find the ones that work for you.
I have completed Master's degrees in Applied Social Psychology and Counselling Psychology, which have given me extensive knowledge in how to identify, understand and treat mental health concerns. Treatment can help you improve your mood, develop healthy self-worth, better your relationships and feel confident in your ability to cope with challenges.
