Description

In my therapeutic work,  I collaborate with clients to formulate an approach that best fit their needs. I  acknowledge that everyone has their own unique experiences and set of challenges, that there is not a one- size-fits-all approach when it comes to a client's unique therapeutic  process. I draw from evidence-based practices that include CBT, mindfulness, DBT, EMDR and trauma informed.
 
I recently moved to Hamilton and am honoured and excited to be able to work within the community I call home.  If you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment, please reach out.

Summary

In my practice, I draw from an anti-oppressive, client-focused, strength-based  framework. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that you are the expert of your experience.    My approach is eclectic, drawing from a variety of evidence-based practices including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), trauma informed therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), mindfulness practice, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.    My goals as a practitioner are to help you reach your goals in a safe, empathetic and non-judgemental space.
