Counselling Philosophy

At different points in our lives, we may be faced with trials and tribulations that can be difficult, leave us uneasy, unhappy, anxious, depressed, or unsatisfied. As a developing psychotherapist, I aim to use my growing knowledge to aid those in the community combat these trying times. I work with individuals, families, couples, teens (12+), and athletes dealing with trauma, reduction of stress, anxiety and accomplishing various life goals. I help clients reach a state of happiness, balance, and better health through a healthy therapeutic relationship and an integrative approach.

By blending therapeutic approaches, dependant on the client’s needs, I can help clients reach their desired goals. I work with diverse groups which has expanded my perspectives on varying experiences helping me better understand and support both current and future clients. Some of the therapeutic theories that are drawn upon are Cognitive Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Emotionally Focused, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior, Acceptance and Commitment and many others. My flexible approach integrates various well-researched psychological theories and processes to help facilitate the meaningful changes you seek. Ultimately, I support clients in making positive changes in their attitudes and behaviors. I work in a collaborative manner by listening to the needs, goals, and stories of my clients with the goal to leave impactful and positive changes in their mental health.

I do regular consultation with my supervisor for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical expertise and to discuss client concerns in confidential manner. The receipt you will receive will be in my name as a Registered Psychotherapist in the province of Ontario, which is acceptable by most insurance companies (e.g. Sunlife). It is your responsibility to determine whether my receipt is acceptable for your workplace benefits and insurance.

The regular fee for counselling is $170.00 per session.
