You may be feeling distressed, confused, anxious, lost, or overwhelmed. Maybe you have suffered a bereavement or you are having relationship difficulties. Maybe your children are experiencing anxiety, depression or stress. It takes courage to reach out to a stranger for support. Whatever your reason for therapy, you have found your way to me, and I am here to help you figure things out. Together we will access the parts of you that need healing and I will help guide you on your journey to uncovering your inner strengths. You will be encouraged to speak honestly and openly and be understood and accepted for who you really are. Through a shared exploration of your life, the hope is that you will find relief from recurring problems, live more contended life with happier relationships both with yourself and with others. I can help you not only gain awareness and insight, but learn to stop pretending everything is fine when it isn’t.
An open and Compassionate Environment
Your first appointment with me is an initial consultation when I would be interested in learning more about you, your past experiences and present difficulties as well as things that are of concern to you about your life and relationships in complete confidentiality. My integrative approach allows me to draw from different therapeutic strategies based on your needs ,There is no commitment to work together after that first appointment. The consultation usually lasts 50 minutes or up to an hour and a half.
For Couples, Little Things Mean a Lot
If you are having the same fights over and over, or you may feel your love for your partner has been replaced with tension, fear, and frustration. This can be a very painful and difficult place to be in. You may feel hopeless. You may wonder how this even happened in the first place. You have found your way to me, and I am here to help you repair you relationship and restore connection and intimacy. I employ an active and caring approach which focuses on emotional intimacy, attachment, and safety and seek to create a safe and neutral environment where collaboration is possible.
We all want the same thing – a relationship that is safe and loving, and trust that our partner is on our side.
Therapy can be valuable for families striving to cope with conflicts effectively and reestablish meaningful connection. The family is a system where each individual plays a distinct role to keep the family progressing. Unfortunately, there are times when families can develop negative patterns. Family therapy can build healthy coping, problem solving, and communication skills which can create positive changes within the family system.
Child and Adolescent Therapy
I will support you to make sense of your child's behaviour , and help relieve your child of his/her anxieties and find more adaptive modes of coping. I am trained to carefully observe children and young people and respond to what they might be communicating through their behaviour and play.I will teach your child/adolescent to become grounded and centered as a starting place. Together we will focus on building an emotional toolbox, so your child can access the best parts of him/herself. From there, we will explore goals and intentions and discuss what, if anything, is getting in the way of your child truly manifesting from the most positive place possible. I will meet your child at the appropriate developmental level; therefore, creative play, art, movement, and discussions are all included in my approach.
