“There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ model”

I approach therapy from an integrative perspective. This means that I draw from different approaches in psychology, including psychosexual, attachment, mindfulness, person-centered, systemic, cognitive-behavioural, acceptance & committment, DBT, emotion focused therapy and EMDR.
 

I do not believe that there is a one size fits all model when it comes to our mental and sexual health, and so I allow each client’s story, concerns and goals to shape the course of our therapy. I hope to help my clients find meaning in their experiences.

During each session, I will interact and collaborate with you to work through your concerns, and we will constantly evaluate your therapeutic process to ensure that we are meeting your goals and working on the concerns that matter the most to you.

What to expect

It is quite normal to go through stages in life when we notice sexual changes and things don’t feel quite like they used to. But this can become distressing and frustrating when it persists and interferes with relationships and sexual satisfaction. I offer sex-positive education, guidance and therapeutic intervention to help people meet their sexual goals and understand themselves more intimately. Sex is approached in a non-judgemental and positive way. I help couples understand their patterns of behaviour, communicate more effectively, and reconnect intimately on all levels.

I also offer general psychotherapy, working from an integrative perspective and assisting clients with a range of concerns that might be disrupting their day-to-day life.

In the initial consultation, I will conduct a thorough verbal assessment. The assessment questions will depend on your concerns, and may focus on topics such as physical, mental and sexual health, upbringing and childhood, your current and past relationships or previous mental health concerns. Each talking therapy consultation last for 50 minutes.
