My primary theoretical framework is cognitive behavioural therapy, although I do integrate other evidence-based methodologies to meet your needs and promote optimal psychological and interpersonal functioning. I take on an active and compassionate stance to create a comfortable environment for self-growth and safe exploration.
My approach focuses on creating an individual treatment plan that assists you to identify and achieve your goals in therapy, increase your self-awareness, and support you in overcoming life’s challenges. I will provide you with the appropriate skills and strategies to help you navigate through trying and difficult situations.
We are not responsible for our first thought, but we are responsible for our second thought and our first action.
A lot of our personal power can be found in that space between our first and second thought.
Together, we will explore your past experiences and personal needs to better understand your current behaviours, emotions and psychosocial functioning. In personal and emotional growth, our working alliance will be the foundation from which we build on, as this enhances therapeutic progress. You can expect a trusting relationship that prioritizes collaboration and acceptance.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and a Professional Member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
