Counseling Approach

My theoretical approach to counseling stems from using an eclectic approach to counseling. This approach draws on multiple approaches and techniques in counseling. It is a very flexible approach that allows me to select the most effective methods to address my client's individual needs.  


As a Neuropsychotherapist I combine psychotherapy and neurobiology. This approach treats concerns by looking at connections between the brain, the body, experiences, and the environment. It considers the neural processes involved and how they can dictate thoughts, emotions, information processing, social interactions, and behaviour.

Person-centered approach is different from the traditional therapy model, where the therapist is viewed as the expert in the process. This approach empowers and motivates the client throughout the therapy process. The person-centered approach is rooted in the belief that people strive for and have the power to fulfill their potential. Instead of viewing people as flawed, it identifies people's capacity and desire to change. This approach recognizes and trusts human potential and provides clients with empathy and a non-judgmental environment to help them grow and change. It allows me to provide support, guidance, and structure so clients can discover personalized solutions within themselves. 

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. 

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for various problems, including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, and severe mental illness. It is a structured, goal-oriented approach that assists clients in their thinking and emotional well-being. It seeks to correct and resolves thinking errors, core beliefs, and generate a more balanced perspective of situations that a person encounters. CBT offers tools and techniques to help move people from surviving to thriving.
