Have you struggled with feelings of depression, anxiety or anger that you believe are beyond your control? Do you have difficulty getting along with family or friends? Have you turned to alcohol or drugs to cope? Have you experienced trauma or abuse? I can help you feel more balanced and in control. We work together to help you identify problematic ways of thinking, learn new ways of coping, and meet your goals. We can work on current issues or things that are troubling you from your past, whichever you choose. I also do assessments for legal purposes.
My approach is mainly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT helps you identify problematic thinking, develop new ways of looking at situations, and learn new behaviours to help you reduce stress and feel better. Toward the end of therapy, we also do Relapse Prevention - to help you not fall back into old patterns.
I introduce clients to Mindfulness exercises to help with stress. I also offer Schema Therapy. This approach helps you identify and break recurring patterns in your life. My practice is open to clients of diverse backgrounds. In addition to my training in psychology, I have a background in criminology, and addiction.
Souffrez-vous de dépression ou d'anxiété? Avez-vous de la difficulté à gérer des émotions intenses? Vivez-vous des défis dans vos relations interpersonnelles? Tournez-vous vers l'alcool ou la drogue pour tenter de gérer? Avez-vous vécu un trauma ou de l'abus? Je peux vous aider a trouver un état d'équilibre, et un meilleur sens de contrôle. Nous travaillerons ensemble afin d'identifier vos pensées problématiques, apprendre des nouvelles stratégies pour gérer, et atteindre vos buts. Vous pouvez discuter de situations courantes ou de difficultés dans votre passé qui vous troublent encore.
Je fais de la thérapie cognitive comportementale (TCC). La TCC est une approche qui vous aide à identifer le lien entre vos pensées, vos émotions, et votre comportement. Vous apprendriez comment mettre vos pensées à l'épreuve, des stratégies de gestion de stress et d'émotions, et des nouveaux comportements. Nous ferons aussi la prévention de la rechute.
Je vous proposera aussi des stratégies de pIeine conscience (mindfulness) pour vous aider à réduire votre stress. De plus, je fais la thérapie des schémas, pour vous aider à identifier et changer des cycles récurrants. Ma pratique est ouverte aux clients de toute diversité. Je suis aussi formée en criminologie et traitement de dépendances.
