Counselling Philosophy

I work collaboratively with clients in their journey toward growth, strength, health, and attaining each client’s own unique personal goals. I work on providing a safe and secure space to work alongside clients as we explore struggles and challenges and how they are affecting daily life. Together we will look at how a client may be coping, what is working or not and how to move toward more adaptive and sustainable coping strategies and healing.

I believe in creating dynamic treatment plans for each client based on the particular needs of each individual. In this way, I use an integrative approach, based in person-centred therapy and utilizing aspects from a myriad of other approaches (including CBT, ACT, Psychodynamic, and Internal Family Systems).

I invite you to reach out if they feel you are struggling or encountering challenges in your life so we can begin working toward deeper self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and mental health together.
