My approach to psychotherapy:
I believe that treatment should be individualized based on the individual client’s needs, strengths, resources and goals. Because of this, I use a variety of therapeutic approaches: 
Cognitive – learning how our thinking impacts emotions and behaviour and challenging that thinking where necessary to make desired changes
Interpersonal – looking beyond just the individual to explore the importance of relationships (both at home and at work) on current functioning
Educational – giving clients factual information they need to help them create new options, understand themselves and their environment
Experiential -  using guided imagery, drawing, and other non-verbal means to explore issues (this does not include hypnosis)
I advocate a treatment team approach.  What this means is that I will help people get connected with other community and professional resources that will help them reach their goals more effectively.
