My Approach

Feel Grounded in Support 

At some point in our lives, distress, dysregulation, and disconnect can feel overwhelming.  Reaching out for support can be daunting but you are not alone in this journey.

 

Tethered Psychotherapy is about feeling grounded with the support that you have access to and connecting to the resources that provide you with a sense of belonging and restoration of self- and co-regulation.  

I aim to foster a warm, compassionate, transparent, and appropriately challenging space.  I maintain a posture of cultural humility and respect, as well as an awareness of my privilege in my work.

I believe that the client is the expert of their own life.  In sessions, you will be given the space you need to express yourself and be heard, to be informed of your options, and supported to collaboratively use your strengths and resources to reach your goals.  I will be utilizing evidence-based therapies to catered to your unique needs.  This may include:

 

  • Narrative therapy 

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS)

  • Trauma-Informed Therapies

The Process

Consultation

Therapeutic progress is all about the therapeutic relationship.  

That is why finding the right fit for you is of the utmost importance.  Folks interested in therapy are encouraged to book a 15-minute phone consultation to determine alignment with their future therapist.  

First Session

Explore with your therapist the heart of your concerns.  This will be an opportunity to get better acquainted and develop a plan to best meet your needs and goals. 

Subsequent Sessions 

Maintain your mental health progress through ongoing support. This will provide an opportunity to collaboratively set your plan into motion, get to the root of your concerns, and develop new coping skills.  Depending on collaboratively established expectations, you may be invited to complete reflective and actionable practices outside of sessions to apply concepts and skills discussed in sessions.
