My Approach

In my therapy practice, I work with individuals, couples, and sometimes families.

It is a privilege to meet you and give "voice" to your story.

My approach includes helping you see that you are not the problem, "the problem is the problem".

Through counselling conversations, I help you to build on your strengths and erect a platform to take a position against whatever may be taking power away from you. This involves thinking about problems differently, and finding solutions.

I use various approaches in my practice depending on your needs.

In therapy I see you as the "expert" on yourself, and my role as your consultant. Evaluation of our work together includes asking you if the therapy is helpful. Respecting your uniqueness and making you feel comfortable is important to me.
