About

I am a registered therapist with over nine years experience working in mental health. I work from a client-centered approach integrating evidence-based practice with an emphasis on the therapeutic relationship. I provide clients with a non-judgmental, safe environment that facilitates openness and encourages self-exploration. I am trained in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); encouraging clients to explore the inter-relatedness between thoughts, behaviours and emotions while helping identify maladaptive patterns.
My specializations include the treatment of social anxiety, generalized anxiety, OCD, stress management, interpersonal/relationship issues (including communication and assertiveness skills) and self esteem.
I aim to help clients gain a better understanding of themselves & build their sense of self worth while learning to diminish internal obstacles which get in the way of developing and reaching personal goals. If you think we might be a good fit, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'd love to offer you a free phone consult :) https://www.riseworktherapy.com/
