Ally's Therapeutic Approach
Ally values the bonds with her clients above all else and is committed to providing a space that is warm, caring, and non-judgemental. She shares herself authentically with clients and is committed to providing a very different therapeutic relationship for those who have had negative experiences with therapy in the past. Her promise to clients is that in working with her you will feel supported, understood, and safe sharing your experiences.
As a therapist and as a person, Ally would describe herself as very intuitive, often sensing what her clients need in any given session and thereby tailoring therapy to their unique needs. She knows that increasing self-awareness is very empowering, and therefore uses a skills-based approach to educate her clients on the role of their nervous system in their emotional, mental, and relational challenges. Ally also uses emotion-focused approaches to help her clients identify why it is they are struggling, to build new skills in mental resilience and self-soothing, and to move them forward with a sense of clarity and empowerment.
Ally is trained as a Registered Clinical Counsellor, working with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and specializing in Parts Therapy and a Somatic Modality for trauma processing. With her training and expertise, she effectively helps her clients heal trauma and work through the challenges of anxiety, self-shame/low self-worth, relationship and communication issues, body image concerns, and eating disorders/disordered eating. Ally blends evidence-based therapy with her own background in yoga and spirituality when helping clients heal the origins of challenging emotions. While practicing Parts Therapy, she helps her clients connect to and hold space for their inner child, inner teenager, or any other area that may have been harmed in the past.
