Individual Therapy, Student Therapist
The decision to enter therapy takes considerable insight and courage. Sometimes the storms of life can overwhelm and exhaust us, leaving us stuck in old patterns, behaviours or thoughts that no longer serve us. In these moments we are doing the best we can with the tools we have, and sometimes we want to do better but don't know where to start. Much like the metaphor of the storm, my role will be to work alongside you, create a space where you feel seen and heard while you bravely weather what life brings you.
I use a client centered and compassion-based approach to therapy, which focuses on using curiosity, empathy, and choice to develop trust. I aim to create an environment where clients feel safe, understood, and accepted as they are. The work we do will be uncomfortable at times, our struggle to avoid or control challenging emotions, thoughts or behaviours can leave us feeling discouraged and alone. Having a safe and non-judgmental space to work through these difficult experiences can instill hope and feel like having a beacon through the darkness. My approaches are informed by feminist, anti-oppression, trauma informed and intersectional frameworks.
