My way of working focuses on (re)connecting our minds, hearts and bodies so that we can have more ease when relating to ourselves, others and the various aspects of our lives. I work with older adolescents, young adults and adults, and also with parent - child relationships. I'll commit to having a collaborative and respectful therapeutic relationship with you where you are the expert in your own inner world and life experiences. I'm here to support you to explore what is getting in the way of you having what you most want for yourself. We will look back on your life, but will mostly work on your experiences in the here and now.

Rather than taking medication and treating the issue on the surface, would you prefer to better understand why this is happening to you, and why it happens ? With more than 23 year of private practice of psychotherapy, I can help you to cope with your situation and, most of the time, turn it into a positive experience. My work focuses on qualitative change, and for that we'll analyze things under the surface.

We experience difficulties in different ways. Often people seek therapy when they have been feeling feeling more anxious, stressed or frustrated more than usual, sometimes indicating a life transition such as relationship problems or difficulties at work. At other times clients get in touch when they noticed that something does not feel good but are still unsure of the reasons that may lie beneath and are keen to develop insight. We will build a shared understanding of current difficulties, and together will identify your hopes, goals and needsI draw from psychological evidence-based approaches to inform your unique treatment plan.

Emotion complements reason in ways which can be confusing, especially considering the social animal we are as humans: living with remarkable sensitivity to one another. Emotion guides us toward knowing our unmet needs. In therapy, only you can be the expert of your inner world's path. It is an honor to accompany you while maintaining focus on your goals, limiting distraction and avoidance behaviors, and fostering opportunities for appropriate self advocacy and self compassion.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
