THERAPY FOR ADULTS

I work individually with adults who might be feeling overwhelmed or struggling to cope with difficulties that may be related to depression, anxiety, loneliness, loss or bereavement, relationship stress and life changes including those brought on by chronic illness. For the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders, I primarily make use of Metacognitive Therapy (MCT).

I also draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic approaches, depending on the specific needs of the client.

Each session is collaborative with a specific focus on holding struggle with compassion and on gaining new insights that can lead to constructive changes and an alleviation of distress.
