I work with mothers in all stages of their motherhood journey (from thinking about having a child until you are a mother of adult children).
I approach individual therapy from a relational perspective. What this means is that I understand that we live in interconnected relationships and this impacts us and our daily experience. Often times, mothers tell me that this way of looking at things takes away the pressure and the shame of everything being “their fault” or of something being "wrong with them".
Mothers come see me for some of the following challenges:
Our conversations are confidential. What you share with me will not be shared without your permission. However, there are some exceptions. For example, when someone’s safety is at imminent risk. In our first session together, we will go over confidentiality agreements and you will have an opportunity to give your written informed consent for our work together.
I am legally bound by various jurisdictional laws that sets rules for the collection, use, and disclosure of personal health information. As a Psychotherapist and Health Information Custodian, I am legally bound to abide by these acts. In our first session, we will go over how your information is stored.
