Theoretical Orientation and Special Interests

I work with adolescents, adults and couples and I also offer family therapy. Working with a variety of people from a multitude of backgrounds and cultures, I deal with a variety of human experiences and difficulties including mood and anxiety disorders, relationship difficulties and stress-related difficulties. I also work with trauma, childhood themes, grief, emotional neglect, low self-worth and struggles with identity and loss of self.

I believe that for therapy to be successful, it must be tailored for the specific needs of the individual, couple or group and my therapeutic conceptualization is drawn from a multitude of theories and therapies including the following: Person-Centered and Supportive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Transactional Analysis, Systems Theory and Existential Psychotherapy. I have a special interest in the areas of self-worth, authentic self-expression and relationships and I believe that there is a connection between mind and body and base my focus on overall health and well-being.
