Hi, I'm Amanda!

 

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) who is passionate about coming alongside couples and individuals experiencing relational distress. If you are looking to create stronger bonds with others and within yourself, I would love to join you on this journey.

 

In working with you in a therapeutic relationship, I take a collaborative approach and trust that my clients know themselves best! I will meet you where you are at and empower you in life's challenges. Through a sense of comfort and safety, I will create an open space for you to share your experiences - the highs, the lows, and everything in between. I am here to support you as you experience personal and relational growth by developing new skills, increasing self-awareness, and creating secure attachments. 

 

My training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) has influenced my attachment perspective, though I draw from other modalities like Gottman Method Couple Therapy and  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to fit your needs! Additionally, I work from a Health at Every Size and anti-oppressive approach with a desire to create an inclusive space.

 

Establishing a meaningful therapeutic connection is important to me as we embark on this journey! When working with me, you will be met with a warm, inviting presence. I lead with empathy and ensure my clients feel safe and secure in our sessions. I would be honoured to come alongside you as you seek the support you need.
