My Approach

      Within my practice, I welcome adolescents, adults, couples and groups. I work with trauma, addictions, anxiety disorders, depression, relationship challenges including communication & infidelity, anger management, personality and mood disorders, grief and self-esteem issues.
   
      My collaborative therapeutic approach is tailored to my clients' specific needs, as opposed to a prescriptive predetermined formula. I work with people with varied backgrounds and life experiences. Each client, be they a family, a couple or an individual, is treated with respect and viewed as unique. My approach is positive, collaborative, compassionate and non-judgmental, and aims to support clients to explore, understand, and move towards different, more desirable outcomes.
The goal of therapy is to understand how we got where we are and shift perspectives and behaviour so that we can ultimately move forward in a new direction. Therapy can sometimes be difficult, but can also be tremendously rewarding. I strive to provide a supportive, safe, comfortable environment that allows clients to work towards their therapy goals.

 

I look forward to helping you to make your life and your relationships more workable and more fulfilling!
