Description

I uphold a strengths-based lens in believing that everyone has innate strengths and skills present within themselves, and it is through collaboration of the therapeutic process that these strengths can be discovered, drawn out, and built upon. While primarily working from person-centred and solution-focused approaches, I also incorporate aspects of strengths-based therapy, IFS, narrative therapy, and mindfulness. The diversity of these therapeutic modalities will ultimately allow me to align my approach with your individual needs, treatment goals, and views/ values of healing.

A New Tomorrow

Summary

Hi! I am so glad you’ve taken the step to look for a therapist.    A couple words to describe our style are; gentle, nurturing, open/non-judgemental, curious, and accepting. We are not here to tell you how you "should or shouldn't" be living or thinking. Instead, we see our work as a partnership with our clients, where we work together to understand the purpose and function of your feelings and how to manage and regulate them. To get to know our team better, I suggest booking a free 20 minute phone consult!
