My style of therapy tends to be warm, friendly, and open to what you need and want from a session together. We will slowly build a relationship and get to know one another, explore the themes and experiences that have brought you to therapy, and work towards any goals or changes that you have identified are important to you. I tend to bring humour to most of my sessions as well, as I find humour can be a powerful tool for growth and healing.
I strive to work from a client-centred, strengths-based, trauma informed lens. This means that I recognize you as the expert of your own life because you are the person who has been living it. I also recognize that you already possess inherent knowledge, wisdom, skills and strengths needed to achieve the change you want to see for yourself, and we will work together to uncover, rediscover or further develop these strengths. Sometimes we have experiences in life, including ones that have been very challenging and traumatic, and these experiences impact how we approach situations, respond to others, and live our daily lives. Being trauma-informed means acknowledging the unique way that we all approach life is informed by our experiences. In addition to these lenses, I also draw on a number of evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
Life is full of highs and lows, and it is inevitable that we will all face unexpected roadblocks, intensely challenging experiences, and phases where we are feeling lost and unsure what to do next. Sometimes we might find that we want to navigate these challenges and roadblocks on our own, and other times we might decide that we want support from a person outside our own lives to help us find our footing again. I became a therapist because I believe deeply in every person's inherent strength, knowledge, and ability to not only survive life's challenges, but to overcome them and thrive. I also recognize that sometimes, we have things happen in our lives that make us feel disempowered, afraid, and hopeless. I became a therapist because, through my own experiences in life, I know how important it is to acknowledge and address what we may have experienced in order to eventually transform feelings of disempowerment, fear and hopelessness into feelings of empowerment, strength, and hope for the future.
