My Approach to Helping

Relationships can be hard. Whether romantic, platonic, or familial, relationships can be a source of stress, anxiety and pain.

Maybe your relationship just ended and you’re going through the throes of heartbreak. Or maybe you’ve had a few failed relationships and you’re starting to feel like you’re dating the same person over and over again.

You could be realizing that you and your partner have been constantly arguing and you’re questioning the relationship. Or you’re at a loss for what to do about that difficult family member’s behaviour or treatment.

Maybe you’re noticing that the fallout you had with a friend is affecting you more than you thought it would. Or maybe you’re feeling lonely and you want more meaningful connections in your life but social anxiety and lack of confidence are holding you back.

If any of this resonates with you, you’re in the right place.

Hi! I’m Audrey. I am a Registered Social Worker specializing in working with individuals (aged 18 & up) who are struggling with relationships. I am committed to helping you feel secure, calm, and confident in your relationships with romantic partners, family members, and friends.

I practice from a combination of an attachment-based and a trauma-informed approach to help you process and heal past wounds and cultivate a sense of security in your relationships and within yourself.

I draw from evidence-based modalities, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, to equip you with the necessary skills to manage difficult emotions and build healthy relationships with others and with yourself.
