My Approach to Helping
*Currently Accepting New Clients*
I believe that one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is the opportunity to heal and grow from the challenges life presents us. My experiences have taught me that growth and healing occur through authenticity, connection, and acknowledgement and I believe therapy can provide a space for this process to unfold. I work with individuals, couples, and families and offer a free consultation to ensure we are a good fit.
I recognize that each person’s journey is unique and as a therapist, my role is to support you in yours. In my work, I aim to create a safe and trusting therapeutic environment in which you feel heard, respected, valued, and understood. What you can expect within our sessions is to be met with openness, honesty, compassion, and genuine care and curiosity. My hope is that our work together will create a space for you to develop greater awareness of how you experience the world and of your hopes for healing and growth. Therapy can offer an environment to process and understand the challenges you may be navigating, while exploring and connecting with your inner strength and resources. This process can provide the opportunity to develop, strengthen or re-define the relationships within your life, including with yourself and others based on your core values and desires.
My approach is rooted in relational, strength-based, systemic, and anti-oppressive practices that seek to empower those I work with. In my work, I draw on my professional training and lived experiences. I utilize various therapeutic modalities including Emotion(ally) Focused, Solution-Focused, Narrative, and DialogicCollaborative therapies. I am also experienced in the fields of Gerontology and Health Promotion. Personally, I have a lived experience with immigration and an understanding of the inherent challenges in navigating various value systems and balancing the individual with the collective. As a result, I believe that the relationships, systems, and communities we are part of, speak to “why” and “how” we need to heal and grow.
Regardless of where you are in your journey, I welcome the opportunity to meet with you, whenever you are ready to do so.
