AUTHENTICITY, TRUST, COMPASSION, AND CURIOSITY....
Not only is it essential for me as a professional to incorporate these values to provide a safe space but I also help clients find these within themselves. These values help align what may be off-centre, foster healing into what may need healing, and give clarity to what may be confusing.
I AM CLIENT CENTRED...
Which means I believe you are the expert of your life. My role is to help you strengthen your ability to trust yourself more, develop your authentic self, and sort through the chaos that may be happening within. I will suggest different strategies to help you navigate through your challenges, but will always respect what feels right for you.
I HAVE AN EMOTION-FOCUSED APPROACH...
Let's face it, emotions can be confusing, painful, and sometimes even taboo to talk about. These are normal reactions, and yet emotions have vital information into unmet needs, old wounds that need healing, and childhood or recent trauma. Together we can find ways to relate to difficult emotions in a positive way that fosters growth and healing.
I PRACTICE VARIOUS THERAPY MODELS
Along with using an Emotion-Focused Therapy model, I also pull from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Compassion Focused Therapy to find and utilize evidence-based tools and strategies that fit best for you.
I am no longer taking clients at this time. If you have any questions you can email me and I am happy to discuss them. I look forward to connecting with you!
