My Approach to Helping

I believe that the container which is the therapeutic relationship is key to the process of insight, healing, and growth. In this safe and unique environment, we are able to collaboratively work to achieve your personal goals. I utilize the breadth of my studies and expertise in order to bring tools into our work that suit the particular nature of our work together. Using a variety of modalities and interventions enables me to curate my approach to your unique style and set of goals.

More Info About My Practice

Fran�ais: Je con�ois la th�rapie comme une�collaboration entre un individu�et son th�rapeute. Souvent, le plus difficile est de faire le premier pas - de reconna�tre qu'on ne veut plus�faire face au probl�me�seul. Je propose une approche�int�grative - mon objectif est d'adapter ma prise en charge et les outils th�rapeutiques que j'utilise � la personne ou le couple avec lequelle je travaille et aux probl�matiques qui�l'am�nent. Je travaille les probl�matiques�psychiques�et�relationnelles�: comme un sentiment de mal �tre, d?anxi�t�, de d�pression, un manque de confiance ou d?estime de soi et de l?autre, un stress, un sentiment de solitude, une s�paration douloureuse, un deuil p�nible. Je vous invite a me contacter et prendre le premier pas vers une vie plus pleine et harmonieuse.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy can create powerful insight, healing and change in your life. By entering into an unconditional and non-judgmental relationship you are able to be and to cultivate your true self. In collaboration with a therapist and by showing up and doing the work, I believe lasting growth and the achievement of whatever goals you set for yourself is possible.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I believe the beauty of psychotherapy is it's depth and breadth. The diversity of tools and interventions is infinite as is the uniqueness of each person, their issues and goals. The particular therapeutic relationship that is made up of the therapist and the client create a similarly unique and powerful duet. In this safe and unconditional environment the process of psychotherapy can create and cultivate powerful and lasting growth, healing and change.
