Making the decision to engage in therapy is a proactive way to ensure your mental health is a priority. Therapy can provide the opportunity to look deeply into your experiences and emotions, and gain insight into your personal process. My philosophy is to create a safe and secure environment that allows for open, honest discussion, which will help to foster both understanding and healing. Using an integrative approach to therapy, I collaborate with each individual to create an experience that is comfortable, supported and progressive. It is my goal to help individuals explore their issues at their own pace, and in a supportive way.
A Note on Animal Assisted Therapy
Animal assisted therapy works to encourage a felt sense of security within the therapy room, which can then help to facilitate the experience of processing and ultimately, of healing. Interacting with an animal can promote safety, consistency, security and stability and these traits can then be transferred into other situations and experiences.
