I know that it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help at times when we feel distressed, overwhelmed, vulnerable, confused, wrought with sadness, shame, hurt, guilt, intense worry... Some of us have been told or made feel that we do not deserve better, or that we are not lovable enough, or smart enough, or thin enough, or strong enough, or funny enough, or healthy enough… Sometimes we spend years hiding the pain and the struggle for fear of being judged and rejected, or seek refuge in food, alcohol, drugs, sex, or self-harm to cope with the belief that we can never feel differently about ourselves or the world.
In my practice I focus on helping my clients develop a different relationship with themselves - one based on acceptance, self-respect, and empowerment through understanding and addressing the barriers to building a more balanced and fulfilling life. That includes learning skills to correct the ongoing cognitive, behavioral, and emotional struggles, as well as working on understanding the origins of the beliefs and attitudes that keep us feeling powerless against repeating our negative patterns. I use person centered integrative approach to treatment (drawing from CBT, DBT, interpersonal, and mindfulness-based strategies).
I see patients in Vancouver after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays (Mondays 8-6) and in Abbotsford on Saturdays (8-4).
