I have worked extensively with teens, individuals and couples as they navigate various challenges including anxiety, depression, suicidality/self harm, relationship and interpersonal stressors, as well as complex trauma and PTSD. Some individuals are very aware of where they are struggling, which helps us to align quickly and start working together. Whereas others might be new to counselling and really want a trained clinician to help them to understand and make sense of their world and experiences in a safe, warm and supportive space. I offer a client centered approach and will meet you where you are at, wherever that might be.
I use an eclectic client-centred approach which might include counselling informed by CBT, DBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, the Gottman Method for Couples and trauma informed approaches. I enjoy a very creative and practical approach to therapy where we partner and collaborate together.
Whether you are looking for some new ways of coping or communicating, or are hoping for longer-term changes, we will carve out a path forward. Together we will identify where you might be struggling and develop strategies for change, always making sure that the work we are doing is both meaningful and relevant to you. That's why we're both here.

My approach to therapy is informed by evidence-based treatments, as regular training is something I value and feel is important. I have advanced training in CBT, DBT and trauma informed methods which guide my methods and I also like to use both practical and creative/out of the box approaches when supporting clients with coping or working towards change.
