Attend Individually

The term therapy /ˈθɛrəpi/ comes from the Greek word meaning “healing”. If you would like to improve your well-being you may use this confidential space to increase your self-understanding, together.

Attend with Someone Else

Sometimes there can be a confusing dynamic unfolding in intimate relationships. We can use the therapeutic space to increase safe communication and in the aim of bidirectional understanding and decreased distress. This could be couples' therapy or family therapy, for example.

Attend from your Home

Research since the 1980s demonstrates that video, or “distance”, therapy is as effective as therapy which takes place in the same room when the unique differences are considered.

Even if you are not quite sure what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to schedule a consultation.

"Do you know why we have the sunflowers? It’s not because Vincent van Gogh suffered. It’s because Vincent van Gogh had a brother who loved him. Through all the pain, he had a tether, a connection to the world. And that… is the focus of the story we need. Connection."

Carl Rogers

"Many aspects of bodily function and emotional behavior are shaped by social interaction... If they are seen as dangerous enemies then they can only be managed through exerting social pressure and fear... But if feelings are respected as valuable guides both the state of your own organism as well as to that of others, then a very different culture arises..."

Sue Gerhardt

"Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us all the best opportunity for growing into the healthiest of people."

Approach

Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)

EFT is an empirically-based approach born out of humanistic and psychodynamic therapies. The method is designed to help increase awareness, acceptance, expression and regulation of emotion with the aim of emotion transformation.

Psychodynamic Therapies

Psychodynamic techniques are based in using attachment theory, dynamically, in the therapeutic relationship to help recognize your patterns of relating to others.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on raising our awareness of current behaviours and thinking patterns, and how these form part of a system which effects our experience of emotion in the world. Through recognition, we can make changes in cycles we get stuck in.

Humanism

The above therapeutic approaches I practice are grounded in the Humanistic tradition. My work is person-centered built on the principles of genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathy.
