My Treatment Philosophy
What to expect?
I help individuals by building a trusting therapeutic relationship with them, which enables us to look at their personal struggles from a fresh perspective. Our work begins by understanding who they are and why they have come to counselling. We then work together to explore relevant underlying themes and create goals for a new way of being.
Research shows that the relationship between the client and therapist is the most significant factor in determining the outcome of therapy. I strive to establish and strengthen our relationship by validating and normalizing my client's experiences. My expertise in various therapeutic models allows me to use a range of tools in each session, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Seeking Safety (for Trauma), Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
