My practice is client centered, meaning collaboration is an integral part of my work. Your identities, life experiences, values, and goals are all welcomed in the room when working with me. In our work together, I will be direct, gentle, exploratory and results oriented. I am best suited to supporting folks with relationship challenges, mood disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.), shame, low self-worth, issues related to race, gender, sexuality, and identity, life transitions, and chronic stress.
I work with a trauma informed, harm reduction, and intersectional lens. Attachment and psychodynamic theories heavily inform my practice, and the modalities I use most include (but are not limited to) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness, and Solutions Focused Techniques. With couples and constellations, I use the Gottman Method.
No matter the modality used, I commit to working together to find strategies that work for you. If you feel like we could be a good fit for each other, please do not hesitate to reach out for a complimentary 15 – 20-minute consultation. Thank you so much for visiting my profile! I look forward to being in touch :)
