Chances are you are considering therapy because you feel overwhelmed and require some guidance to get back on course. My therapeutic approach focuses on Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) to enhance interpersonal relationships (family, friends, and co-workers) and to help you gain the skills required to reduce your emotional challenges. I also incorporate a Strengths-Based (client-centred) Perspective. This is because you are not your problems and carry with you an abundance of strengths and resources. As your therapist, I aim to create an environment where you feel safe, accepted, respected, and understood.
I have been a Registered Social Worker for over 10 years and work with adults of all ages. I offer individual therapy for clients dealing with depression, anxiety, grief, and family and work conflicts, among other life-changing challenges, such as divorce and retirement. Other modalities include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Positive Psychology.
I draw from various modalities to help you address your concerns and personalize your treatment plans. This allows for the consideration of your talents and hopes; but also, cultural, and personal experiences, which can influence trauma responses. Through the healing journey, I hope to help you gain self-awareness, clarify the issues and achieve your goals.
