How I Will Work with You
My integrative therapeutic training and
practice includes these modalities and techniques:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical
Behavioural Therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Motivational Interviewing,
Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.
Counselling allows for a genuine focus on you. I fully listen and seek to understand your story as you share in a safe, judgement-free space. Nothing is more important than establishing a sacred, trusting client-counsellor relationship. We work collaboratively so you can take the necessary incremental steps you need to heal old wounds, resolve internal conflicts, reaffirm your values that matter most, and reclaim the resources within you that energize and motivate. We embark on this journey together so you can:
Increase self-awareness -> discover more of who you are
Better understand how you perceive and respond to difficult situations
Identify and make greater use of your own resources and support network
Gain fresh insights on the challenges you face; find freedom by discovering new perspectives; reclaim energy, hope and joy
Discover new steps towards a more content and purpose-driven life
Individuals 60-min session $120 / 90-min session $180
Couples session starts from $135
