The deeper sorrow carves into your being,
the more joy you can contain.

My Approach

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that there are many ways to heal. When it comes to your personal healing journey, I believe that you select the path and I simply help you find the right pair of shoes. My goal is to support and help you find resilience, joy, empowerment, and satisfaction in your life. While I believe that each of us is molded by our circumstances, experiences, expectations, and aspirations, I also believe that we are in a constant state of learning and flux. In spite of what has happened to us, we are able to break that mold.

My practice is informed by Solutions-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Systems Theory. While I rely on these theoretical approaches to support you I am also open to working with you to find the best approach to address your specific concerns.

It would be a tremendous privilege to be able to provide you with supportive counselling on your healing journey and an honour to hear your story.
