My Approach to Helping

Throughout my extensive and varied professional experience I have had the privilege to work with many diverse clients, in many different contexts. Some of the topics and challenges I’ve helped clients with include anxiety, depression, family and parent conflict, relationship struggles, motivation, abandonment issues, boundary setting, shame, vulnerability, communication skills, anger, identity, gender, sexuality, trauma, suicidal ideation and substance use. I believe everyone has many examples of resilience in their life, which I work to celebrate and help clients build upon.

Fundamental to my therapeutic work is a non-judgmental and collaborative approach, and the client-centered idea that we are all the experts over our own lives. I strive to create an approachable atmosphere and believe humour can be a powerful tool in difficult situations. Our goal is to work as a team, to explore how best to achieve your goals.

I know it can be difficult to reach out for help, and finding a therapist we connect with can be a daunting task. If you think we might be a good fit, I would love to help you bring about the change you wish to see in your life.

More Info About My Practice

For those interested in the 'jargon' of the profession, my therapeutic practice can best be described an an eclectic approach, incorporating a diverse set of styles; this includes Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Narrative approaches. I apply a strengths-based emphasis, harm reduction strategies, mindfulness and psychoeducational components. I practice from a trauma-informed perspective, and utilize a theoretical frameworks such as Family Systems Theory, Anti-Oppressive Practice, an Attachment Theory lens, and I value safe and affirming care practices.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

First, I am honoured that you're interested in working with me, as I know selecting someone for therapy services can be difficult at the best of times. I am mindful that therapy can be a sensitive process, and I work hard to ensure my sessions are as approachable and collaborative as possible. Research has shown therapy works best when clients feel comfortable and develop a strong therapeutic rapport with their therapist, so ensuring we are a good fit is a top priority of mine. My experience has been that everyone comes to therapy with different needs and goals. You'll find I often check in with clients, to ensure they are getting what they want out of therapy, and sessions are structured in the way that works best for them.

Virtual therapy can also have the added benefit of allowing you to engage in sessions from the comfort and familiarity of your home. If you live with a vulnerable health condition, or in a rural location, virtual sessions can provide a safe and accessible option for therapy. It allows clients to save the time, energy, and cost of travelling to a therapy appointment at a physical location, which many clients find appealing. It allows session scheduling to be more flexible. I have had many clients who were initially reluctant to try video sessions before COVID-19, but now prefer the format due to all the benefits.

If you'd like to explore if we'd be a good fit to work together, or if video sessions might be a fit for you, feel free to request a free phone (or video) consultation beforehand.
