Working as a Registered Psychotherapist, my therapeutic approach is psychodynamic, which can also be called insight-oriented. Through relational conversation, we can work together to connect the present to the past. This can assist you to find links to your history that create patterns of living that may be challenging in your life now.
We can work together to respect and know all parts of you, both those that the world readily sees and those that can remain hidden.
I truly respect the decision people make to come to therapy. It takes a certain amount of courage to come and sit in front of another person to talk about your stories and feelings.
Each person’s story is different and I want to hear yours and understand you.
My hope for you is that through this journey together you will find relief in your day-to-day life and that, over time, you will experience greater fulfillment and freedom in living.
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on your needs. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, and report progress (or any new insights gained) from the previous therapy session.
Therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development.
It is most common for people to attend weekly sessions, on the same day at the same time each week.
My training as a psychotherapist was through The Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto, which has a rigorous, academic, and experiential learning program to specifically train therapists to practice psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Practicing as a psychotherapist is fulfilling for me. It is an honour to be a part of someone’s healing and growth.
I’ve been working to support people in various professional roles for 28 years. I have provided assistance to youth, to people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities-differently abled, to individuals with mental health needs, and aided their family members. This gives me a foundation of experience and knowledge to draw from to help you.
Some of what we can discuss in this session is what brings you to therapy, what you would like to gain for the experience, and my approach to the work. It is a chance to decide if we would be a good match to work together.
