About Desiree

I share a common human experience with the individuals I work with and I can appreciate each person’s journey. Maybe you are considering therapy to connect with someone non-judgmental and outside your personal support system; you are feeling uneasy or worrying about life’s situations; you are withdrawing from others and no longer find joy in things that brought you pleasure; substance use or a habitual behaviour is getting in the way of meaningful relationships and meeting life’s challenges; you experienced a major event in your life and you are feeling overwhelmed. We will endeavour to understand these challenges and I will support you in taking steps that would benefit you.

I use a variety of therapeutic styles – dialectical behavioural therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, internal family systems, emotion focused therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, harm-reduction, brief solution focused therapy and the triphasic model of trauma therapy. We will collaborate on a therapeutic plan and strategies to practice that would benefit you on your journey.

To learn more about my offerings to individuals, couples and families, please visit my webpage and connect with me by phone or email. A free 15-minute consultation session can be booked on our site and I’d be happy to support you in taking the next step on your journey.
