Finding the right counsellor can be a daunting task. I believe that before positive change can happen, a person needs to feel there is a good therapeutic fit with their counsellor in an emotionally safe and non-judgmental environment. I invite you to set up a first consult with me and you will know quickly whether the therapeutic relationship will work for you. If there isn’t the right therapeutic fit between client and therapist, I will find you an alternative counsellor who might be the right fit for you.
I integrate evidence-based treatment modalities into a relevant and tailored intervention that maximizes each person’s capacity to breakthrough setbacks that keep a person or relationship stuck. Problems can feel like a heavy weight or an overpowering storm, but with support, I believe it is possible to reduce the impact of problems and to consider new ways of coping through the difficulties we face in life.
I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and attachment-based approaches such as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help structure my sessions so clients can see their progress in measurable and experiential ways. Although I have professional expertise, I believe that you are the expert of your life, and I will work collaboratively with you (and the others who may be a part of the process) to make your situation better.
