My Approach

I believe the therapeutic relationship is more important than any modality one can use. That said
I have a strong orientation toward solution focused brief therapy and cognitive behavioural
therapy. I believe in a trauma informed approach and have recently delved into polyvagal
theory and nervous system co-regulation. All these approaches come naturally to me, as they are
respectful, trauma informed, and strength based. I have an ability to build rapport quickly and
fluidly throughout sessions. I appreciate people and the resources they bring to sessions, whether
they are aware of the resources within them at first or not. I honour the opportunity to hold

space for clients as they work through their thoughts and feelings. I present myself to clients as
curious, interested and engaged. I believe that change occurs through catharsis, self-actualization,
appropriate time and relationship i.e. therapeutic rapport.
