Talking about challenging situations or relationships involving intense emotions is not always easy. Sometimes, these intense emotions can make finding clarity, solving problems, or achieving a sense of peace or satisfaction difficult.
I believe that suppressing our emotions doesn’t often end well for us and that true healing happens through acknowledging and processing our feelings. This is why I often take an Emotion-Focused approach with my clients. Sometimes, depending on what your needs and preferences are, I will borrow from other therapy approaches like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), and Mindfulness.
If you’d like help managing depression, anxiety, anger, sadness/grief, or trauma or would like to work on improving your self-esteem or relationships, I would love to work with you.
I will work with you to understand where you are coming from and how I can best help you. I am flexible in how we work together to accomplish your goals. We can focus on helping you heal from past experiences or keep our work focused on the present. You’re welcome to guide the focus of our therapy sessions, or if you would like, I can direct us through it. We can take a direct, step-by-step approach or a warm, gentle, and open approach. My focus is developing a collaborative, safe, and comfortable space for you so that we can get you the best results out of our work together.
