Counselling Philosophy

Each person is the expert of their own lives; sometimes we just need a little help along the way.  I believe we all have a deep longing for similar things: connection, authenticity, belonging, and being understood.  I work with individuals, couples and families.  My approach to therapy is holistic and client centered, with focuses in Attachment Theory and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT).   I also integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing skills to help you find a balance and flow of what will help you reach your full potential. I strive to make my office a safe space that is non-judgmental, where you can be heard, maybe for the first time in your life.

Some of my areas of focus are anxiety, self-esteem, self-worth, and bullying in teenagers and young adults; families with children, teenagers and young adults; and blended families. I also work with individuals who struggle with anger management, chronic illness, identity and existential issues and crises, workplace stress, and day-to-day life concerns.

When we first meet, we will work on a treatment plan together to ensure you feel authentically supported and understood as you make the journey towards the vision you have for yourself, your relationships, and your family.
