Therapy is a collaborative partnership between you and your therapist, and although we hold a set of expertise, we believe you are the expert in your own life. We will engage in an open and honest conversation with you when developing your treatment plans and goals. In our role as psychotherapist, we 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.
We believe psychotherapy is a powerful tool to help you connect with your vulnerabilities. We work with you to uncover emotional patterns that may no longer be serving you and to find new ways of navigating them. We strive to bring a holistic perspective to the work we do, taking into account all aspects of who we are as human beings and the environment and culture in which we live. The practice is 2SLGBTQIA+ positive and welcomes diversity. We work hard to continuously unlearn oppressive ways of being that we grow up internalizing and strive to engage therapeutically with integrity, ethics, wholehearted presence and with the utmost intelligence and skill. As social workers we are committed to recognizing and working against the impact of systemic racism on the health, safety and wellbeing of black, indigenous and all people of colour (BIPOC).
We 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 and anti-racist principles and tailored to the individual and the issues they bring forward. We specialize in attachment based psychotherapies, Emotion Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy and mindfulness-based psychotherapy.
