Largely, my work is client-centred. This means our sessions are tailored around your specific needs on that given day as I draw from the theoretical tools I have learned. I believe it is important to understand our experiences holistically and not just from the mind, and this will be reflected in our sessions. I may invite you to become aware of physical sensations and/or breath to invite some curiosity, openness and awareness to other aspects of your being.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy contributes greatly to the approach I take with my clients. IFS is a trauma-informed and holistic approach that involves mind, body, and spirit and allows me to meet any presenting issues you may be experiencing with openness. IFS is a non-pathologizing approach and invites you to develop more understanding and compassion to your internal world. It understands multiplicity of the mind – meaning, we are not just “one” person who thinks and feels the same way all of the time. Through this approach I can help you enhance your relationship with yourself, as well as your friends, family, and the community that surrounds you. Please don’t hesitate to ask me more about IFS.
I am also certified with the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP). This program establishes counselling services or expenses as a benefit which may be available to victims, immediate family members of victims and some witnesses.
