APPROACH TO THERAPY
Within treatment, I use evidence-based clinical practices, including but not limited to emotion-focused therapy, attachment-based therapy, strengths-based therapy, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy. These practices are used to help clients rediscover their inner strength and resiliency within. Since everyone is different and unique in their own way, an eclectic approach to therapy is used. My aim is to work with clients to support them in achieving their goals and collaborating in creating a treatment plan that is suitable for clients.
