Trauma Focused Therapy in Vancouver

My Approach

I stay away from a-one-size-fits-all

I believe therapy needs to be tailored to each individual’s needs and level of comfort. I approach therapy in a similar manner to caring for my plants at home. Each plant requires a different level of care: some require more sun, some like to be watered weekly, some – like cacti – can thrive in pretty much any environment. When you meet with me, I will make sure to support you in the way that you need to be supported.

person-centered and strengths-based

I have been trained in many different approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Emotional Focus Therapy (EFTT), and I use some of these evidence-based approaches to guide my work. In my practice, I try to meet you where you are, creating an individualized plan for you and your personal needs.
