MY THERAPEUTIC PHILOSOPHY
If you or someone you know and care about is facing a challenging time with emotional problems, it can feel extremely hopeless, devastating and overwhelming. It is always my mission to provide you a compassionate, supporting and non-judgmental therapeutic environment where together we can gain insights and find ways to overcome life challenges; engage in, resolve and ultimately maintain satisfying relationships; and work towards achieving your full potential. I practice CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), T.E.A.M. Therapy, Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy, Solution Based Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy. My therapeutic philosophy embodies a client-centered approach that focuses on applying the therapeutic modality that is most appropriate for the client to heal so that the client can overcome dysfunctional scenarios and relationships and resume a more satisfying and fulfilling life again. I firmly believe in people’s innate abilities that are required to overcome adversity in their lives. My eclectic educational model has successfully empowered many clients and has uncovered solutions to resolve personal impasses facing them; and has led them to more informed and ultimately satisfying life styles. I am sure you are ready to make a change and I can help you arrive at your desired destination.
