My approach is an integrative one that is individually developed to suit you as a client. I develop therapeutic approaches according to your needs, set intentions and honor your journey. I believe that change is challenging and working with you will help you transition to a more suitable place where you also locate your own answers. When clients are empowered they become "directors" of their lives. The techniques I use accelerate change making therapy more affordable and quicker so you can get on with your life.
2020 has been a year of drastic change and tough challenges. COVID-19 has changed all aspects of our lives, work, relationships, health and, for many, what we hold to be true and what we value. We have had to reevaluate our goals and intentions for the future. Businesses we depend on have closed, friends and sometimes relationships have followed paths away from us and many have lost loved ones. We now depend on technology to manage our work tasks, keep us connected and entertain us more than ever. The social events, and cultural and art events we used to attend have disappeared or we now view them alone on the internet instead of with friends or groups.
On top of this, life has become much more uncertain and planning has become very difficult. Those of us who relied on travel to look forward to and indulge our sense of adventure are now baking bread, reading more or looking for activities to entertain us, more than likely alone and on the Internet. What we thought would be a few months of lockdown has become months and months of isolation and ordering everything in. Masks are part of our wardrobe and we feel like we are missing something if we go out the door without one. Front line workers are affected the most and our hearts go out to them.
All these changes can bring difficult feelings of loss and disorientation, and anxiety about the future. In setting the scene I am inviting you to reach out for support. I am here for you and I can help you make sense of and adapt to how your life has changed and set a direction for the future. I provide Telehealth psychotherapy and have a variety of tools and approaches to support you to take your life back from the chaos of 2020. Contact me at 604-562-9130 and we can discuss how I can help you transform your life.
In choosing me as your therapist you will have a therapist who is experienced, compassionate and versatile. Also most extended health plans cover my services as a clinical counsellor.Contact me for your free 30 minute telephone consultation and take the next step in setting intentions and designing an approach that insures a better life for you and your significant others.
My therapeutic approach is both traditional as well as leading edge practice such as Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness-based stress reduction, solution-focused and brief therapies. I create a safe and supportive environment where you can deal with personal, work and vocational issues and overcome life challenges.
