Individual Therapy


Counselling and therapy can be a place to create healing, self-awareness, and personal growth. It's a continuous ongoing process where you invest in yourself by learning about your emotions, make sense of your experiences, and learn skills to improve your resilience, self-care, relationships, and overall well-being.

I provide support to youth 13+, young adults, and working professionals (20s-30s) struggling through a range of challenges such as:

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • ADHD, Autism & Neurodivergence
  • Grief & Loss
  • Burnout & Chronic Stress
  • Parenting Challenges
  • Suicidal Ideation & Self-harm
  • Creative Blocks
  • Substance Use Issues
  • Identity & Self-exploration
  • Faith & Spirituality
  • Recent and Historical experiences of Trauma
  • including childhood trauma (physical, emotional, sexual) 
  • adverse childhood experiences
  • childhood emotional neglect
  • intergenerational trauma
  • spiritual and religious trauma
  • trauma from systemic oppression/oppressive systems
  • complex post traumatic stress

Therapeutic Approach

Individual therapy sessions provide a confidential, safe, and non-judgmental space to explore what is keeping you stuck. Together we will collaborate on building a treatment plan to address your concerns and goals. My training as a counsellor includes a wide variety of approaches. I understand that we all have unique needs and experiences, so I aim to tailor these approaches to help support your needs and goals. These approaches include:

  • Person-centered
  • Emotion-Focused Therapy
  • Strengths-based
  • Trauma-informed & Trauma-focused
  • Holistic (Bio-psycho-social-spiritual Approach to Care)
  • Art Therapy
  • Somatic Internal Family Systems (working with parts of ourselves)
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Adlerian Therapy
  • Christian Spirituality (only if requested by clients)
OUR PROCESS


Step 1:

Consultation


You are invited to share what you are looking for within and throughout counselling sessions, curiosity questions you may have. You might also want to consider your counselling goals, preferred treatment modality, and whether you would like online or in-person sessions based on your preferences and needs.



Step 2:

Intake


If you feel like we would be a good fit and would like to start counselling, I will invite you to book a first session. This will accompany an explanation of informed consent and a questionnaire collecting some information about where you're at to help me provide therapeutic support and strategies that best support you.



Step 3:

First Session


In our first session, we will go over the information provided from your questionnaire. We will explore your needs, interests, goals and then collaborate on a treatment plan unique to you. We can decide whether you want a talk or art therapy approach. This plan can always be revisited and adjusted as your needs change.



Step 4:

Ongoing Care


After your first session, you can book additional sessions weekly, biweekly, as needed, or based what we agree on in our treatment plan. Sessions can be conversational, arts-based, or a blend of both based on your needs. You can always expect some strategies, encouragement, and support at the end of each session.
