My therapeutic style

We sometimes struggle to understand and express our feelings and thoughts in challenging situations. This can limit our ability to problem-solve, think creatively and critically about our situation and learn and grow through it.

I practice from an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed and strengths-based perspective. I work with individuals and couples experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, life transitions, low self-esteem, anger, and communication challenges. For me, Emotionally Focused Therapy provides a clear path through the emotional distress we sometimes experience in relationships with partners, family members and friends. It helps us to cultivate healthy and loving relationships that support our mental health during life challenges and allow us to flourish and thrive. My commitment is to empower clients to cultivate a profound sense of agency in their lives. Through our collaboration, my aim is for you to enhance your emotional mastery and foster problem-solving skills that will positively impact your relationships.
