I provide individual (children, adolescents, young adults), parental and family therapy for a variety of behavioural, developmental, emotional, and relationship issues. In a warm and supportive atmosphere, clients are offered a highly personalized approach to help attain the personal growth they are striving for. I have an integrative and interactive theoretical approach. Thus, my theoretical framework is mainly cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic when working with individuals, while family systems theory and behaviour modification principles are key components of family work. Regardless of the theoretical emphasis, the therapeutic relationship is always held as a top priority.
