My Approach to Helping

I am a nonjudgmental, open person who values integrity, compassion, and equality. As a therapist, my approach is client-centered and integrative. What that means in English is that I want you to feel valued, appreciated and respected at all times. I will listen to your story, provide you with informed, evidence-based tools, and work with you to achieve your therapeutic goals. My goal is to help you feel most connected and authentic in all of your expressions in therapy. One of the key foundations for good therapeutic results is a strong therapeutic relationship. I want you to be you.

People who appreciate working with me have a sense of humour, are open to be gently challenged, and know that good results take time. I value authenticity in all my interactions and believe that the biggest vehicle for change is motivation and complimentary action. You are choosing to get help--that in and of itself demonstrates strength.

I am cheesy by nature, so forgive me in advance. Know that I value the impact of words and thoughts on emotions and behaviours, and will likely ask you to work through this as a means of healing. I am also likely to offer mindfulness and meditation as supportive resources. Whatever you are struggling with, we will cultivate a plan that makes the most sense for you so that you feel really good about therapy and want to do the work involved.

More Info About My Practice

My practice is in-person, over the phone, and online, enabling full access and convenience. We also provide Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises and Mindfulness Groups Sessions as an additional component to psychotherapeutic interventions.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy can be a vehicle of change. I will be there to listen, to nurture, to help you process your past, and to help you transform your unhealthy thinking and behaviour patterns for the future. However, you will do the work. You will heal your own life. My goal is to empower you to move forward in your own journey of self. Regardless of what comes from session, the application is key. Let's empower you to take charge of your life and your future to access a whole new version and dimension of yourself.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

As a person, just like you, I have had my fair share of my own concerns. I had failed relationships. I was emotionally and psychologically abused. I had concerns with my family. I was stressed, anxious, and depressed. These events are not setbacks. They helped me grow and change into the person I am. Because of these experiences, I pushed forward to a new identity seeing my experiences as vehicles of change.

Recovering from my own concerns has made me stronger and more understanding. Having this background allows me to access a different dimension of feelings and healing so that we can truly connect to help you move forward on your personal journey.
