Psychotherapy is a talk-based therapy and is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. Therapy focuses on bringing about positive change in a client’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning.
Individuals usually seek psychotherapy when they have thoughts, feelings, moods and behaviours that are adversely affecting their day-to-day relationships and their ability to enjoy life, which may include some of the following:
- Anxiety and stress
- Grief and loss
- Relationship difficulties
- Coping with anger
- Body image concerns
- Confidence and self-esteem
- Prenatal and postpartum concerns
- Uncertainty about life purpose
- Difficulty reaching goals
- And more
I strive to empower my clients to make positive changes in their lives by providing a safe, non-judgmental space for them to feel comfortable sharing. My approach is grounded in collaboration through thoughtful conversation and reflection to provide you with the tools, strategies, and coping skills to manage concerns in a more functional way. Ultimately, I believe therapy should not be one-size-fits-all and work to provide personalized support for each unique individual.
I have specialized knowledge and training in perinatal mental health as well as working with grief and am a big believer in the importance of self-care. I utilize evidence-based frameworks such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Solution-focused Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and the Gottman Method (informed) to work from an integrative perspective that is customizable to meet your treatment needs and goals.
