My Approach

Therapy is a collaborative partnership between you and your therapist, and although I hold a set of expertise, I believe you are the expert in your own life.  I will always engage in an open and honest conversation with you when developing your treatment plans and goals.  In my role as psychotherapist, I listen, guide and work from a practical, compassionate and non-judgmental perspective, working to help you connect with your feelings and give language to your experiences.

I believe psychotherapy is a powerful tool to help you connect with your vulnerabilities.  I work with you to uncover emotional patterns that may no longer be serving you and to find new ways of navigating them.  I strive to bring a holistic perspective to the work I do, taking into account all aspects of who we are as human beings and the environment and culture in which we live. My practice is LGBTQ2S+ positive and welcomes diversity.

I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy, which draws on knowledge from a variety of different theories and models.  It is trauma-informed, rooted in anti-oppressive principles and tailored to the individual and the issues they bring forward.  I specialize in attachment based psychotherapies, emotion focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, schema therapy, internal family-systems therapy, and mindfulness-based psychotherapy.
