About me as a therapist

My therapeutic style is open, collaborative, and integrative in nature, combining a holistic approach with evidence-based treatments, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Coherence Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Somatic Therapy.

My intention is to create a safe haven and supportive space to not only heal, but to learn, grow, be seen, and be heard.

About my therapy sessions

During the first sessions, we explore your current situation, request for help, your expectations and my therapy style. Together we decide if we are a ‘good fit’. If we both agree to engage, short and long terms goals will be determined and together we will create an action plan tailored to your needs.
During our therapy sessions, I will take notes, ask questions, and provide feedback and perspective, while encouraging you to develop your own hypotheses and insights. Although, each session may vary in content and focus our established action plan will serve as our guideline. You will learn more about yourself and be provided tools and homework to help manage the many struggles life can throw at us. As we go along, we will assess our progress and determine whether the initial goals were achieved or need to be reformulated, and when you are ready to end counselling.
