 Therapy Style 

Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?

My therapy style is eclectic, I use a humanistic approach using tools from Cognitive Behaviour therapy and mindfulness practice and incorporating psychodynamic elements.

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

We are partners in the therapeutic process: you’re the expert on yourself. Though our goals will be unique to you, I hope to help you live intentionally while experiencing the range of emotions life has to offer.

Humanistic approach: Focuses on a person’s individual nature, rather than categorizing groups of people with similar characteristics as having the same problems. Humanistic therapy looks at the whole person, not only from the therapist’s view but from the viewpoint of individuals observing their own behaviour.


Psychodynamic therapy: Focuses on recognizing, acknowledging, understanding, expressing, and overcoming negative and contradictory feelings and repressed emotions in order to improve the patient’s interpersonal experiences and relationships.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Targets psychological problems by looking at learned patterns of unhelpful behaviour. Helps better understand and identify distorted thoughts and develop a better sense of confidence in one’s own abilities.
