About

(

)
I believe that warmth, positive regard, and acceptance are important to find the insights and tools for an important change in our lives. It is important for me to build a therapeutic relationship with genuineness and work together to enhance self-awareness and self-compassion. I prioritize allowing each person the agency to adapt techniques to their individual experiences or needs. I have a strong interest in individuals and the impact of society, culture on the development of personality. My passion for mental health, advocacy, and counselling has guided my practice and work through trauma to find strength and resilience.
I have worked for 10 years in the community and public sector, working with adults providing group services and also working with children and teen and their families. I have held leadership and teaching roles that have given me insight in intervention. I have a compassionate and caring presence to my clients, working together towards acceptance and change.
In practice as a psychotherapist, I have an integrative approach that is Humanist at its core and integrates a range of approaches such as Psychodynamic, Eco-Systemic, and Existentialist. I also have clinical experience in a variety of cognitive evidence-based techniques, including trauma-informed Mindfulness (MBCT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
J'ai une spécialisation jointe en anthropologie et sociologie et une mineure en psychologie. J'ai travaillé en santé mentale communautaire avec adultes et au reseau public avec jeunes en santé mentale depuis près de 10 ans. J'ai suis formee en pleine conscience (MBCT) et en thérapie comportementale dialectique.
