With many years of experience working with a varied clientele, I have the necessary knowledge and understanding to assure clients that their concerns are being heard and that there can be hope to improve and feel better. I provide psychological counselling to children, adolescents, and adults. I also provide psychoeducational and psychodiagnostic assessment to children and adolescents.
My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for clients to explore their challenges with an objective professional. My therapeutic approach is based on gaining an understanding of the client, defining obstacles to their wellbeing, and using evidence-based (scientifically proven) treatments to help improve their everyday functioning and ability to enjoy life. I determine which therapeutic interventions are best suited to the client’s needs and include techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), elements of dialectical behaviour therapy (in particular using mindfulness and acceptance), and attachment-based techniques. When providing results for assessment, I try to ensure that the information is clear and the recommendations are applicable. I provide individual as well as systemic (usually school-based) recommendations with assessments.
