MC, Registered Provisional Psychologist
I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist with eight years of experience in the Mental Health field, and I have been working as a counsellor since 2021. I recognize that starting counselling can be difficult, and I am here to compassionately guide you through the process. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them live healthy and fulfilling lives according to their personal values and strengths. I take the role of a supportive, encouraging guide and invite my clients into a space of authenticity and vulnerability. I offer my knowledge and training, but you are the expert of your own experience. Together we find opportunities to move toward change and growth in the areas that are important to you.
Currently, I work with adults and couples. My passion includes anxiety, depression, anger, self-esteem, stress and burnout, emotional regulation, life transitions and relationship difficulties. My sessions with couples focus on communication, emotion regulation and conflict management.
Through a person-centred approach, I work with my clients to ensure they progress towards their chosen goals. I incorporate cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), elements of attachment theory, emotion-focused therapy (EFT), and mindfulness-based techniques into my therapeutic work with clients. I utilize the Gottman method in couples therapy and support couples with communication and intimacy-enhancing tools.
I view the therapeutic relationship as an essential part of the healing journey and I work hard to create a safe and accepting environment for my clients to explore their concerns and experiences. Thoughts and beliefs play a powerful role in the way we feel. Within the safety of our therapeutic relationship, I help you to find the vocabulary and space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour without judgment. My hope is that through our work, you gain greater insight into yourself and others. I look forward to meeting you and learning about your unique story and perspective!
