COVID 19 UPDATE: Please note that for the time being, all my services including
therapy, testing and feedback sessions are being offered via Zoom, a confidential
platform designed for video-conferencing. Happily, previous research has shown
an equivalence between remote and in-person services; while nothing replaces
being together in the same space, meeting remotely has so far gone very smoothly.
For those who prefer to wait for in-person services, we are currently preparing a
detailed re-entry protocol to ensure the health and safety of clients and clinicians
alike. For more information or to book an appointment, please feel free to contact
me at firstname.lastname@example.org or my assistant at email@example.com. Thank you!
Individual, Couple or Family Therapy...
...because life should be as rewarding as possible.
Life is unscripted. We do the best we can with what we're given, trying to cope with twists and turns that are often unexpected. So therapy should never be about blame or finger-pointing. Rather, therapy is teamwork: I may be an expert in what I do, but you are the expert in you. We put our heads together to make sense of the present, gain a basic understanding of how we got here, and most importantly, find ways to make things better. This philosophy is simple, but powerful. And it works, whether the issues are within the individual (e.g. anxiety, depression, personality issues), the couple (marital/sexual issues), the family, or the workplace (e.g. burnout, interpersonal conflicts).
My primary approach is a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. However, I draw from a variety of theoretical and clinical under-pinnings so the therapy is tailored to the individual, not the theory.
...so we can reduce the obstacles that limit our true potential.
Everybody wants to succeed - child or adult, at school or at work. When success eludes us despite our best efforts, it is easy to become discouraged and disheartened. That frame of mind in turn makes it harder to forge ahead and achieve success. Neuropsychological or psycho-educational testing means putting together all the pieces of the puzzle - strengths, weaknesses, traits and triggers - allowing us to understand what's getting in the way. More importantly, it can help us identify reasonable goals and, ultimately, lay the groundwork for greater success and fulfillment in the future.
