Therapeutic Treatment Modalities and Areas of Speciality
Depending on your specific needs, a variety of therapeutic modalities may be employed to help you move to a heightened place of well-being. Below is a synopsis of some of the therapeutic counselling approaches I utilize, as well as areas of specialty.
Most individuals have traumatic events happen in life during childhood and/or adulthood. Research shows that our earliest childhood adverse experiences often affect our biological, social, and spiritual health well into our adult years. My personal belief is that trauma is at the root of most human struggles. My therapy of choice in healing trauma is Eye Movement Desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) as I have found it fast, safe, and effective. EMDR will help you explore what wounds you may be carrying from the past and will help you reprocess and heal these memories.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a specific therapeutic modality that explores the unique relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. CBT has been shown to have high treatment success rates with mental health disorders and my work draws heavily from it. By challenging the relationship we have with our thoughts it is possible to change our emotions and behaviours, and vice versa. By exploring this reciprocal relationship it is possible to shift into a higher state of wellness.
The mind is a fascinating place to work but my biggest passion lies in the power of the heart and the soul and the invisible world of energy and quantum fields. Sessions interwoven with other great spiritual teachings are typically more effective. I hold a keen interest in trance states, the higher self, ego states, energy medicine, meditation and mindfulness, esoteric practices, the psy realm, and helping you connect to your own guidance system and the wisdom of your soul. These teachings are often woven in to my clinical work based on my belief that you are your own best healer. The wisdom that you need is already within you and I am strongest when I act as a guide as you journey through discovering your own truth.
