STATUS: CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
When we experience difficulty in life, we do our best to adapt and survive. Sometimes we push our pain away, find distractions or try to mentally escape our situation. These strategies may work in the short term, but our unresolved issues often resurface as conditions such as anxiety or depression. These symptoms are not just random occurrences, but are meaningful signals that something needs more attention.
Psychotherapy involves talking about these aspects of life, with the goal of working through your challenges and finding new ways forward. Therapy also involves getting to know yourself better and being curious about elements of life that may be outside of your awareness.
Therapy can sometimes be difficult. It can also be greatly rewarding. Life will always have challenges, but as we continue to acknowledge and understand ourselves more holistically, there often comes a greater sense of personal integration and well-being, which can spur us on to new ways of being in the world.
It’s my desire to support and accompany people on their unique personal journeys. It is understandable that you may feel nervous or awkward about talking, especially at first. I hope to provide an atmosphere where you feel as comfortable as possible to talk in an authentic way.
One of my beliefs is that the answers you seek are inside you, but getting to those answers is a process that requires effort, self-reflection, and an openness to vulnerability. Psychotherapy is a process that can help facilitate this personal growth.
I believe that personal fit is an important aspect of a successful therapy. If for some reason I believe that another therapist would be a better fit for you, I am happy to make a referral or point you to other resources.
While engaging in my own work, I became fascinated by the changes I was experiencing. I decided to pursue a six-year program at The Centre for Training in Psychotherapy, where I had the experience of engaging in a lively and intense psychotherapy group for four years. This greatly contributed to my development as a therapist. It gave me a greater appreciation of the struggles and experiences of others, and the unique paths that people forge to find their own way in life.
I have been in practice with individual clients since 2014.
