 Therapy Style 

Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?

My style of therapy is person-centred and trauma informed and I also use Dance/Movement Therapy as well as feminist therapy.

What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?


I use an embodied systems approach to mental health. 

Person-centred therapy: Uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction.

Trauma-informed therapy/approach: Recognizes and emphasizes understanding how a traumatic experience impacts a person’s mental, behavioural, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. This type of therapy is rooted in understanding the connection between the trauma experience and the person’s emotional and behavioural responses.

Dance/Movement therapy: Uses movement and dance to support the intellectual, emotional, and motor functions of the body.

Feminist therapy: Leverages an integrative approach to psychotherapy that focuses on gender and the particular challenges and stressors that women face as a result of bias, stereotyping, oppression, discrimination, and other factors that threaten their mental health.
