Description

It is my hope to provide a therapeutic environment that invites exploration, and that opens the door to vulnerability. I enjoy the process of finding meaning and drawing connections together in the stories that unfold in session. As an integrative therapist, I draw on existential, feminist, humanistic, structural, and systemic approaches; folding in techniques from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT).
