Theoretical Approach; Areas of Special Interest
I believe therapy provides an opportunity for individuals to express themselves and work towards independence, personal strength, and individual goals. Each and everyone who comes to therapy has their values, beliefs, perspectives, and coping abilities, therefore, when utilizing the most ideal approaches and therapeutic modalities to support each client achieve their goals.
The therapeutic modalities that I often utilize with clients include Cognitive-behavioral the
rapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy. I firmly believe in approaching
therapy from a biopsychosocial approach, understanding the complex interactions of a person's biological, psychological, and social functioning and the influence and impact these factors may have on one’s overall health and well-being. Working
with Country Counselling we offer services that s
upport the “whole person” providing assessments and referrals as needed to provide a well-rounded treatment plan.
