My Therapeutic Approach

The foundation of my training and education is social work. My priorities as a therapist are to remain client centred, holistic, strength-based and compassion focused. I don’t tend to adhere to a specific therapeutic modality, rather drawing on techniques from various approaches dependant on what is needed and what makes sense to my client and myself. Therefore, my approach is eclectic and flexible.  I take pride in being able to flow through emotions, experiences and techniques with my clients to truly meet them where they are at. This also allows me to adapt my practice to the age of my clients, for example, any work I do with children is play, art and/or game based. With that being said, I have made it my goal to train in different therapies to ensure that I can offer the tools and skills my clients need. I tend to draw techniques from the therapeutic models or practices listed here >

 

Please be mindful of the fact that the efficacy of these therapeutic models are typically tested in research as distinct and whole (ex. one size fits all). I keep techniques/activities true to the methodology but it is difficult to research the efficacy of an individualized approach where a therapist alters (ex. making an activity into a game or craft) an approach. Therefore, I rely on clients to share what does or doesn't work for them. See testimonials for examples.
