I provide the option of having a free 20 minute consult to ask any questions you may have about the therapeutic process, and to ensure I'm a good fit for you and the issues you wish to address.

Clinical Approaches

Internal Family Systems Therapy

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an evidence-based model that operates on the premise that we all have many parts, or aspects, of ourselves.

 

IFS is a non-pathologizing integrative approach that helps us connect with various parts that may be holding painful experiences or emotions, including shame, inadequacy, or anger. Parts try to protect us from pain and inadvertently prevent us from being our authentic selves.

 

"Self" includes characteristics of curiosity, compassion, calm, connectedness, clarity, creativity, courage, and confidence. In this model self is who we authentically are. 

IFS helps us connect with and learn about parts, witness their experiences, heal their wounds, and ultimately live more in "self".  In IFS all parts are welcome.

Gottman Method Couples Therapy

The Gottman Method is designed to support couples across all economic, racial, sexual orientation, and cultural sectors. 

Relationship issues that may be addressed with this model include: Conflict and arguments, poor communication, emotional distance, sexual difficulties, parenting issues, financial challenges, and many others. 

Even couples with “normal” levels of conflict may benefit from this method. The aim is to help couples build stronger relationships overall and incorporate healthier ways to cope with future issues as they arise. 

This model uses many tools, in and out of session, to bring couples closer together by gaining a deeper understanding of each others inner psychological worlds. 

Emotion Focused Therapy

EFT is an evidence-based therapy which views emotions as central to our functioning and therapeutic change.

EFT can help identify which emotions can be trusted and which may come from previous challenging experiences that could benefit from being transformed. 

The goal of EFT is to help you access adaptive emotions such as empowering anger, healthy grief, and self-compassion so you can develop a stronger sense of self, more meaningful relationships, and live a more fulfilling life.

EFT aims to help you process feelings productively, by teaching you to connect with feelings in the present, and share them as the arise without becoming overwhelmed.​​

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT is a structured, problem-focused and goal oriented form of psychotherapy. CBT helps people learn to identify, question, and change how their thoughts and beliefs relate to their emotional and behavioural reactions.

 CBT has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use, eating disorders, and mental illness. Numerous research studies indicate that CBT leads to improvement in functioning and quality of life.

Mindfullness Based Therapy

MBT incorporates mindfulness, or bringing ones attention to the present moment, to avoid living in regrets about the past, worries about the future, or judgements about the present. 

 

Mindfulness can assist us in analyzing our thought patterns and reactions, which creates new opportunities for healthier ways of responding to challenges. 

MBT can help quiet your mind so you can be less distracted, or bothered, by worries or repetitive thought patterns. It can help you accept feelings without becoming overwhelmed by them, and assist you to stay in the moment so you can appreciate and enjoy the richness of everyday experiences.
