SERVICES

Individual Counselling sessions:

 

I provide individual clinical counselling services to both adults and youth, primarily working with those who may be navigating life transitions, experiencing grief and loss, and exploring questions of meaning and identity.

 

I also have experience working with the following:

 

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Self-Injury

  • Substance Use

  • Trauma

  • Interpersonal concerns and relational issues

 

I am passionate about working with individuals from a variety of backgrounds, and believe that diversity in age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, cultural background, religion, ability, relationship status and family situation is something to be celebrated. There is so much we can learn from one another, and I truly believe that these different experiences are valuable and enriching to our lives.

 

Therapeutic Approaches

I consider myself to be an eclectic therapist, though first and foremost, one who holds a person-centred stance. By this, I mean that while well-versed in a number of different approaches and techniques, I will select which tools may be appropriate, according to one's particular circumstances, preferences, and needs. As time goes on, the kind of work we do together will continue to be shaped according to what the individual is finding to be most helpful.

Some of the ways in which I practice include:

 

  • Holistically addressing a person's Biopsychosocial experience

  • Strengths-based conversations

  • Arts-based explorations

  • Mindfulness-based practices

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)

 

My work is grounded in theories of:

 

  • Intersectional Feminist and Social Justice orientations

  • Narrative therapy

  • Solution-focused models of therapy

  • Existential therapy

  • Adlerian psychology

  • Trauma-informed and Attachment-informed care
