In my work, I adopt a non-pathologizing approach. I view emotional distress as information that needs to be explored and understood. Many of the struggles clients want help with are coping strategies that worked at an earlier time in their lives, but are no longer adaptive. I work with clients to explore how those behaviours came to be, how they served them, and how to help clients cultivate new strategies that are more adaptive. I see much of learning as unlearning and view healing as a process that unfolds in relationship.
My approach integrates many modalities to suit my clients' needs and collaboratively explores how a client's childhood and developmental history uniquely shapes who they are and how they experience the world and themselves. I focus on the therapeutic relationship as a catalyst for change and help clients craft new understandings of themselves.
I work with clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, relationships, and emotion regulation. All of these experiences can put strain on our ability to connect with ourselves and the people in our lives. I help clients create new ways of understanding their emotional worlds so they can achieve their own goals of living well.
