“My approach to therapy involves whatever is best for you, the client. I prioritize your needs over anything else and believe strongly in an eclectic and integrative approach to treatment that provides all clients with an individualized approach. All people are unique, with uniquely presenting circumstances, and a “one-size-fits-all” approach to therapy is outdated and ineffective. As a Provisional Registered Psychologist with an educational background consisting of both a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, you can have faith that I am well-equipped to provide care through numerous different modalities. While I do strive to be efficient in multiple approaches, as reflected in my integrative/eclectic mindset, my preferred methods are evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). I selected these approaches because of the solid empirical foundations that support them and the greater likelihood that they will prove effective during therapy. Overall, I like to work with a compassion-focused mindset and a positive psychology framework that emphasizes your strengths. I am not interested in pathologizing or labeling you. I prefer to focus on the positive aspects that can help overcome obstacles and help build you up into who you want to be.

To stay true to this vision and deliver this form of therapy, I will ask you to participate in the therapeutic process. Regardless of how much is shared in therapy, I will never understand you to the same extent that you understand yourself. You are an expert on your own life, and while I can provide meaningful insights and direction, you must be involved in every step of the process. As you set goals, monitor progress, and engage in ongoing dialogue, the collaboration between you and me is at the core of a successful therapeutic experience. I would be privileged to join you on your journey!”
