My use of psychotherapy is different than the traditional approach. I use techniques aligned with Positive Psychotherapy, which is an approach that has combined both psychotherapy and positive psychology. This means a focus on strengths over weaknesses; so in your goal setting and treatment, we will balance your individual strengths beside the challenge behaviours or symptoms you are experiencing. If you are interested in seeing me for Positive Psychotherapy treatment, we will explore your counselling goals and tasks and then determine which combination of techniques are the best fit for you, including, but not limited to, journaling, mindfulness, and meditation practices.

We are often influenced unconsciously by experiences from our childhood, and develop patterns of beliefs and behaviour that no longer serve us well in our present lives. In a safe environment, psychotherapy can gently explore the patterns and bring new insight and wisdom, which can lead to new behaviour, perspectives and choices. Clients can connect with inner wells of strength and creativity which can bring a new sense of peace and purpose.

My approach to psychotherapy is first and foremost a relational approach. This means that I believe that the relationship between the therapist and the client holds the greatest potential for healing and development. When a person feels truly understood and accepted, they are more able to take the risks associated with moving forward both internally and externally. Psychotherapy facilitates forward movement by giving a person the skills, insights and internal resources to develop emotionally and to become progressively more resilient and adaptive to changing external circumstances. I provide a safe, secure and non-judgmental base from which clients can take the risk to change and develop.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

4350 Woodcrest Place, Victoria, British Columbia V8N 2C2 | 250-857-8217

Each of us has a persona and a shadow. Our persona is what we project out to the world . Our personal shadow contains the less acceptable and most often unconscious aspects of who we are. Psychotherapy, when most effective, addresses the shadow. It is through our discovery and acceptance of our shadow elements that we balance inner conflict and discover unrealized potential and new creative energy. Your shadow is welcome in my office.

Psychotherapist and Registered Clinical Counsellor

547 Michigan Street, suite #203, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 1E2 | 250-588-4534

Psychotherapy is a counseling process which helps you understand why the things that are troubling you have happened. I will ask you to tell me your story in detail and ask lots of questions to help you gain clarity and insight. This is not a quick counseling method but aims to be a thorough one. The goal is to support you in making the changes you need to make to improve your situation. We will identify your competencies and build on them with new skills. Psychotherapy can be an exciting experience for you as you learn to live your life more as you would like to see it. You may experience some discomfort as you confront issues you have avoided but you will see positive growth in yourself.

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

Victoria, British Columbia V8P 3V5 | 250-686-3473

My approach varies depending on what it is you are hoping to achieve from counselling. It is ok if you are not sure at first - we can work together to identify key issues and support you to determine your goals and expectations of counselling. My approach is influenced by Strengths Based Therapy (SBT), Family Systems Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused and Narrative Therapy. You are the expert of your life. I will work with you to (re) discover your resources (within yourself and those surrounding you), options and strengths while working towards meaningful solutions. The process of learning to identify, challenge, and reframe distorted thoughts is a powerful skill to learn. I also take into account the ‘big picture’: the greater...(view profile to read more)

Psychotherapy is an intensely personal process to help you access deeper layers of yourself with a purpose of healing. Therapist is a compassionate guide and witness, who is there to care for the soul. I am skilled in various modalities of psychotherapy, but my main guiding principle is compassionate and loving presence, spontaneous and creative in the moment. My approach is also holistic in that it includes working with emotional, cognitive, spiritual and somatic levels of your experience in the context of your life. Common rewards of successful psychotherapy are increased self knowledge, freedom from painful habitual patterns, increased ability to be fully present in your world.

Psychotherapy involves the therapist, the client, a psychological problem or symptom such as depression and "the work" - meaning the conversation that happens between them. So, if you are considering psychotherapy with myself, you can expect me to act as a compassionate listener, a trained observer, a coach and a diagnostician. And, also important to psychotherapy is the inclusion of the examination of your experience of the relationship between us - therapist and client. Examination is extremely useful in helping you understand and improve unhealthy patterns and interactions with others outside of therapy.

For me psychotherapy involves a deep listening, a drawing out process, and a dialogue that invites the person to understand their life's journey with a fresh insight into their challenges and successes and potential. There are often undisclosed victories and triumphs that we overlook as we consider our challenges. Acknowledging our hidden strengths is an important component of moving forward.

Cadboro Bay area, Victoria, British Columbia V8N 1L6 | 250-686-9601

Psychotherapy can lead to a greater understanding of our feelings, beliefs and behaviours. With this understanding there is often a resolution of long standing issues and the experience of less anxiety and stress. With greater self acceptance comes a more authentic way of being in the world. I practice within the framework of the Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung as we explore underlying issues that may be interfering with you attaining your goals . For those who are willing to begin this journey inward, I provide an environment that is supportive, non-judgmental and compassionate where you can focus on self-discovery and self-actualization.

My approach to psychotherapy is to use a mindfulness based approach with people. I support and encourage them to stay present with their moment to moment experience, learning to be gentle and compassionate with themselves, as they work through the difficulties they encounter in dealing with present situations, or the ways in which they are "triggered" into old patterns, habits or beliefs from the past.

Psychotherapy can be an enriching and fascinating experience. I work hard to create a safe environment where people can explore their lives from new perspectives. This can be an opportunity to transform your life into what you always hoped it could be, as well as an effective way to clean out the elements that are causing hurt, stress, or discomfort. Psychotherapy in my mind can be likened to yoga: it requires, patience, gentleness, effort and with those optimal results can be found.

Many of us come to counselling feeling alone, frightened, and even ashamed. This is why it is so important to find a counselor who we can trust in our most fragile moments. It is also helpful to find a counsellor who can not only relate to our problems, but can also see our own unique potential for development and growth. I work to help clients better understand and relate to their problems, and discover new ways to move forward. Through facing into our own problems like this, healing is not only possible, but it is where life naturally begins to flow.

Psychotherapy can benefit not only one's self but also one's relating with others. Psychotherapy is about healing meaningless suffering, about having support to gain insight and to choose change. Psychotherapy helps to become more aware of oneself, one's attitudes, relations, and the balance, healing and wholeness that each of us can experience when we are open to live the change we want.
