Therapeutic Approach

Our work together is based on what you need to help meet your treatment goals, which will be different for every client. Recommendations are based on a thorough assessment of your specific situation, ongoing dialogue, and collaboration between the clinician and client.

We work predominantly from a cognitive-behavioural perspective (CBT) to help assist with changes in thinking, doing, and feeling. Delivering practical, thoughtful, and caring therapy.
