My Approach to Helping
I believe in the uniqueness of each client. Each person I connect with is on their own journey of growth and learning. I practice from a person-centered model that involves collaboration on both the client and my part. I strongly believe that you are the expert when it comes to knowing yourself. How I can be of assistance comes from building a therapeutic relationship of trust and then together working towards agreed upon goals. When working with clients who are facing substance misuse and other addiction challenges I practice from a Harm Reduction model. Harm Reduction means that I support your efforts and choices in reducing the risks to yourself and others and that I do not believe that abstinence is the only solution. I am an advocate for reducing the stigma around mental health and illness. Please don\'t wait to get yourself the professional help you need and deserve.
