Accepting new clients – Whether its relationship conflict, work stress, self-esteem issues, or a general sense of dissatisfaction with how things have turned out, life's challenges can feel frightening and destabilizing. This often leads to questions about who we are and how to move forwards. I help individuals of all ages move through mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, and trauma into finding their inner resilience, turning life's most challenging moments into opportunities for self-discovery, learning, and growth. You can't rewrite your story, but you can take control of how you write your next chapter.
My approach is holistic and strengths-based, utilizing a mixture of evidence-based modalities including Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), mindfulness, and more. Drawing on a diverse range of modalities allows me to customize treatment to suit each client.
I work collaboratively with my clients to deepen their self-understanding and explore their emotions, generating new insights and breaking down the process of change into achievable steps. My therapeutic approach is compassionate, empowering, and de-pathologizing, with an emphasis on fostering a positive self-image as we progress through treatment.
