PERSONAL DETAILS AND INTERESTS
We all fall on hard times. Darkness is a part of the human condition, and heartbreak often strikes when we least expect it. The counterbalance is a deep human connection – a helping hand or guiding light. The first step to getting that help is often the hardest, and finding the right person is important. That help can be the difference, and it’s one of the reasons why I became a psychologist.
I am trained in CBT, Schema Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness. I take an integrative approach to my clinical and coaching work by drawing on cognitive, humanistic, emotion focused, and existential theories to help my clients explore their world in more detail.
I believe that creating a safe space where individuals can explore their identity, sense of meaning, and way of being is fundamental to any measure of growth – whether it be reducing symptoms relating to a particular constellation of psychopathologies or helping individuals perform at a higher level.
I see you as the expert of your life and the author of your story. Within a non-judgemental space, the therapeutic process that unfolds is one where use my training and experience to
(1) Help you connect the dots between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours
(2) Offer you a different perspective or mirror upon which to reflect
(3) Provide you with the tools needed to break through your barriers
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom” – Viktor E. Frankl.
