how I work

I have a relaxed, conversational approach, welcoming all emotions, experiences, and personal histories. You can be messy or uncertain in sessions—it's all part of the process. If something feels off in your life or relationships, but you're not sure what, I'm here to help you navigate it.

I'm easy to talk to, down-to-earth, and nonjudgmental. Having experienced my own emotional and mental health challenges, I understand the struggle and the importance of taking small steps toward change.

With empathy and compassion, we'll work at your pace to process emotions, learn coping skills, and challenge unhelpful thoughts. Together, we can work toward getting you back on track to living the life you envision for yourself.

my therapeutic approach

I use a psychodynamic approach to learn how your past experiences and relationships have shaped your current strengths and challenges. This approach can help uncover limiting beliefs, distorted thought processes, and emotional processes that might be keeping you stuck. In practice, this looks like having deep conversations about your personal history, including your childhood, your family dynamics growing up, and impactful relationships and events throughout your life. A psychodynamic approach helps explore the different patterns and aspects of your life and self that could use attention.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help untangle the feedback loops between beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and behaviour that are keeping you stuck. CBT helps root out and shift negative beliefs and cognitive distortions in order to improve mental well-being and change problematic cycles in our lives.

I have training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for both couples and individuals. EFT is a modality that can help clients improve deep-seated patterns in their relationships, emotions, and sense of self. It's an experiential approach that gently guides the client(s) through their challenging emotional and communication patterns to learn new, healthier ways of handling them and connecting with others.
