I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Therapies, Narrative Therapy, Integrative Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Motivational Interviewing and a number of other modalities.
My practice is trauma informed, strengths base and client centred, I work towards creating a trusting and respectful space for clients to become empowered to create meaningful changes in their lives and feel safe exploring what has been holding them back.
Integrated in this work are small tasks in nutrition and mindfulness practices each session to assist in the journey to wellness.
Who I work with
I work with people ready to make changes in their lives, in how they think, how they treat their bodies, and how they live.
I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship struggles, dating struggles, family and social issues regarding race, culture, religion, origin and identity, women who are victims of sexual trauma/abuse, teenagers, couples, and individuals struggling to define their life purpose.
What is CBT & mindfulness?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a goal oriented approach to therapy, the goal is to reinvent an individual’s cognition of life.
Through talk therapy, we draw our awareness towards dysfunctional core beliefs, thoughts and attitudes affecting a person’s feelings and behaviours.
Part of the work is becoming mindfully aware of ingrained patterns that are affecting a person in everyday life.
Therapy and Nutrition
Life challenges, anxiety, depression, may be caused by day-to-day events.
We are still empowered to make sure that our body is equipped with the necessary nutrients, excercise and sleep to function.
An unstable mood may be our body’s way of communicating that we are not receiving the nutrients necessary to manage.
As a basis for any psychotherapeutic work that I do is an assessment of eating habits, sleep habits and excercise habits..
