R.P. (Qualifying)

Associate Therapist

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) # 13975


With years of experience in the field of mental health and a heartfelt commitment to supporting individuals and couples, I have become acutely aware of client-specific needs and am dedicated to using a holistic approach that places the client at the centre of their healing journey. Drawing on my life experiences, my approach is grounded in empathy, warmth, and professionalism. 

 

I am dedicated to serving individuals from diverse backgrounds and providing a safe and judgement-free space that allows for clients to freely speak their truth. I also recognize the complexities of the male psyche and that men face unique pressures and expectations in society, and I work closely with them to address these concerns with curiosity and compassion. I also support couples in navigating through challenges to enhance their communication patterns, deepen their connection, and build a more fulfilling relationship.

 

Recognizing the value of taking my clients’ physical, mental, and spiritual well-being into account, I believe in meeting my clients where they are and tailoring therapy to fit their unique needs. Our therapeutic journey may draw from a range of modalities, including evidence-based ones such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), as well as humanistic ones such as Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Person-Centred Therapy, among others, to offer an integrative approach to empowering you through your healing journey. 


In our sessions, I will equip you with practical tools for coping with stress, improving communication, and fostering healthier relationships. As you integrate these tools into your daily life, you will notice a newfound sense of confidence, self-awareness and/or resilience. l am committed to building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients so that we can uncover root causes and embark on this journey together.


If you are ready to take the next step towards healing, I would be honoured to be part of your journey and look forward to working with you.
