I mostly work from a psychodynamic framework. This means that I attempt to help you find patterns in your emotions, thoughts, and beliefs in order to gain insight into your current self. Alongside this framework, I incorporate concepts and techniques from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This allows us to focus on behaviours that you want to change, as well as working toward greater flexibility and tolerating difficult emotions.
