 My Approach 

I offer a warm, accepting, nonjudgmental environment for you to address whatever is on your mind. 

My therapeutic approach tends to be a blend of Attachment theory, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Emotion-Focused therapy, and family systems. However, I tailor my approach to the needs of each client and so make use of other therapy styles from time to time. I also have some training in neuroscience and addictions.  I have studied both psychology and sociology, which also influences my work.

I value clients from a holistic perspective: as emotional, psychosocial, spiritual beings rooted in a physical body. Therefore, I believe that cognition, emotions, spirituality, and physicality all play a part in overall wellness.

As a Christian therapist, I practice from the worldview that believes we all bear God’s image: that we were created as relational beings and all hold great intrinsic value.  Based on these things, I believe people should be treated with dignity, respect, and value regardless of their belief system.  Therefore, I aim to respect your personal norms, values, and autonomy, regardless of how similar or dissimilar they are to my own.
