I understand that for many, seeking therapy is a daunting process that can be overrun with feelings of doubt. Emotions, including anxiety, sadness, guilt, stress, overwhelmingness, and depression exist on a spectrum, and individuals who seek therapy often question whether their feelings are “deserving” of therapy.
I believe that a culturally-sensitive individualized and integrative approach allows each client’s needs to be met throughout the therapeutic process, collaboratively working towards the unique goals for therapy and this is what I strive to foster. As such, a sense of safety and understanding is my highest priority and I aim to honour the importance of the therapeutic relationship to create their courageous changes.
