Do you find yourself sometimes burdened by the struggles of everyday life, and find it difficult to derive positive meaning from overwhelming circumstances? Rather than internalizing that struggle, it is best to seek the support and care you deserve, and help yourself work through it in a healthy, thought-provoking way. It is not uncommon to encounter moments in life where we feel confused or eager to break free of unhealthy patterns that we unintentionally engage in. Finding the courage to do so can be scary, but necessary to move forward and gain perspective.
We may feel that by swallowing our pain, proceeding with everyday life, and putting on a brave face that we are acting in an admirable way, but finding the strength to seek help when you need it the most is far more courageous. Deciding to seek mental healthcare is the first step to regaining control of your life narrative. Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you is essential in helping you achieve all that you are hoping to from the therapeutic experience.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) member with the College of Registered Psychotherapists in Ontario (CRPO). After completing my undergraduate studies, I received my Masters of Arts in Experimental Psychology at the University of Toronto. I then enrolled in Yorkville University’s Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) program, and am now interning at Elizabeth’s Scarlett’s Psychotherapy practice in downtown Toronto.
I prefer an eclectic approach to therapy that is tailored to the needs of the specific client. I work closely with my clients and really get to know them on an individual level so as to better understand what they are hoping to gain from the experience. My therapeutic style is very supportive, nurturing, and honest. While it is important to provide warmth and care to my clients, I also think it wise to push them to challenge themselves so that they can initiate the change they are hoping for. I see the mind, body, and soul as a series of interconnected networks that have a profound influence on one another. I therefore view mental healthcare as a source of physical care as well. My ultimate objective is to provide my clients with the tools necessary to better their own personal circumstances. While I do perceive psychotherapy as a science and art form, I do not believe in a one-size-fits all approach to therapy and find it crucial to regularly check in with clients to ensure that any beneficial modifications to treatment are taken.
