Registered Social Worker Psychotherapist
What problem do you strive to overcome?
It can be difficult to prioritize our mental health, especially when navigating all the changes and challenges life may present us.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to effectively aid clients in reevaluating and restructuring their thoughts and behaviours to achieve a more balanced lifestyle and healthier state of mind. Within CBT, I often include approaches such as mindfulness, healthy coping skills, and exploration of strengths.
I believe that each client is unique and therapy should align with their personal goals and identity. I aim to create comfortable sessions free of judgement and I am prepared to meet clients at whatever stage of change they are currently at. As a therapist, I collaborate with my clients to facilitate their self-empowerment and growth.
