I value honesty and compassion within the therapeutic relationship and practice my approach with acceptance , genuineness and empathy.
We all feel lost sometimes or face life challenges and relationships that can feel overwhelming. Life is tough, but I believe we all have the ability to overcome hardships. Together, we can explore your concerns and past traumas, working towards lasting change that helps you progress toward the person and future you desire and deserve. I believe in a collaborative approach that empowers and motivates you during the therapeutic process. It's important to me to not only understand and address your concerns throughout therapy, but also to remind you of your strengths and capacity to contribute to goal setting and problem solving.

I'm a MA Candidate student working under the supervision of Dr. Krystle Martin. I have experience supporting clients navigating a wide variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, quality of life, etc. I like to use a collaborative, strength-based, trauma-informed approach in therapy wherein we establish goals you wish to work towards during our time together. I enjoy using Cognitive Behavioural, Dialectical, Acceptance and Commitment, and Cognitive Process techniques. I also think it important to have open dialogue wherein you can freely explore and be curious about your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Whitby or for a Whitby ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
