I believe that successful therapy requires a partnership between the individual and the counsellor.
Together, we will bring our own knowledge to the therapy process and work together to improve the situation.
My approach is guided by an individual's culture, autonomy, as well as the potential impact of their past traumatic experiences. I use therapy skills that are based on research demonstrating their effectiveness.
I have a special interest in providing mental health counselling to adult populations, including post-secondary students and new parents.
In addition to counselling I also offer social work services, such as connecting & collaborating with other resources to better support you.
I'm experienced and/or trained in the following models of practice:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Emotionally Focused Individual Counselling
Perinatal (prenatal, post-partum & post-natal) Mental Health Psychotherapy
Solution Focused Therapy
Mindfulness & Self-compassion
Humanistic & Interpersonal Therapy
Trauma Therapy & Trauma Informed Practices
