You will find that I am down-to-earth and collaborative in our sessions together. I will listen non-judgementally and join you on your journey towards self-understanding and healing. That being said, I will be directive at times when teaching skills, providing education, or making suggestions for in-session and out of session exercises. Although in our sessions we are working hard and many times dealing with difficult emotions and memories, there is always room for humour and lightness in my office. Many of my clients struggle with feelings of shame related to their difficulties. Through telling our stories in the presence of an empathic and non-judgemental other, the shackles of shame are broken.
