My approach

  • I utilize therapies which have been tested using scientific research, and which have demonstrated effectiveness for a particular type of problem/concern.


  • I often use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Behavior Therapy (including a specific type of Behavior Therapy called Exposure with Response Prevention, used for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).


  • I do not use a "one size fits all" approach and try to tailor my approach to the person I’m working with. I believe that it’s important to work with each person at the stage they are at in terms of their motivation to change behaviors that may not be working well for them.


  • My goal is to work collaboratively with clients, to assist each person in changing ways of thinking and behaving that are not working, within a warm, supportive, empathic, and non-judgemental environment.
