“There is no magic formula or ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to counselling that works for everyone. It is important that your counselling experience be customized to you, to your preferences, unique history and background, and your experiences. Therapy is a collaborative process where you are the expert in your life and my job is to walk alongside you and offer my tools and expertise to aid you. I use the analogy of a tour guide. We might stop at one point and look at the past. We might look at patterns of behavior and thinking that happen here in the present. Then together we come up with goals that will help you bring about meaningful and lasting change.”
“Most people come to counselling because they want change in their life, they want to see change. They may not know how yet, but they know they want something to change for the better. I believe that the important elements of successful therapy include the following:”
“In my experience, I’ve learned that not everything is black and white, that there are shades of grey, which has become important to how I connect with clients. I enjoy the intimate nature of therapy that allows deep connection with other humans. It is an honor and privilege to walk alongside my clients as they learn and grow, and to see their transformation.”
“Let’s be honest, seeking professional help is not easy, and requires a certain amount of courage. The good news is that you are one step closer to getting the help that you are looking for. Still not sure who to work with, or what kind of therapy is best for you?”
“My approach to therapy is a unique blend of solution-focused therapy (emphasis is on helping clients to create solutions, instead of figuring out how your problems showed up in your life), acceptance and commitment therapy (personal experiences create our own perceived reality, which means accepting what’s in your control and committing to taking action that improves your life), and narrative therapy (which examines how individual’s give meaning to their lives based on their unique experiences, and how to create new meaning to your experiences that are empowering). While this is not an exhaustive list of my approaches and techniques that I use when working with clients, it is my way of making sense of what brings you to therapy and how to address your concerns.”
“Currently, I am accepting new clients and I would love to hear from you. Give me a call, send me an email, or shoot me a message and we can chat further. Alternatively, you can just book an appointment through our website. I look forward to an opportunity to working with you and supporting you in your journey.”
