I specialize in anxiety, depression and addictions. I also work with personality related issues, grief and trauma.
When we face hardships, it can feel very isolating and overwhelming. We all have coping strategies, but sometimes our usual strategies endure too much stress—putting too much pressure on our mental health and well being. Connecting with a supportive counsellor can help you strengthen your existing strategies or develop new healthy strategies. I use a few different models of therapy to help structure our work together.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
This model focuses on changing the way we think to change what we do and that impacts our moods We will work collaboratively and apply interventions and tools to change the systematic patterns of thinking, behaviour and mood to achieve your goals that better align with your values and beliefs.
Solution Focused Therapy
We usually have more than one issue we are working through, which can be overwhelming knowing where to start. In this approach, we work together to identify one or two issues and work towards practical solutions to that issue that are measurable and that can be tracked. As a person sees change with one issue, there is often a positive affect to the other issues improving a person’s overall sense of wellness and confidence. This approach tends to be shorter-term.
Emotionally Focused Therapy for individuals
Through accessing the deeper parts of ourselves, we can better understand how the way we see ourselves is heavily determined by the attachment bonds we have or by the attachment wounds we accumulate over our lifespan. Together, we will look at how creating new corrective experiences and improving relational constructs will increase mental wellness and the view of self and others.
