My name is Tricia Thomas, I am a Registered Psychologist and Canadian Certified Counsellor. I focus on building relationships to quickly get to the bottom of your problems.
Maybe you feel lost, need help finding your path, or just need someone to talk to. People come to me from all different phases of their lives. I work with you to break down walls and barriers that are holding you back from being your best self.
I will hear you and see you for who you really are and how you show up in the world. You deserve more in your life, including happiness, peace and health. These are not impossible goals or out of reach. As your counsellor, I will create a confidential and safe space for you to share your story so we can work collaboratively towards your goals, whatever they may be.
At the end, I strive for all clients to leave each session with hope and the confidence that you have the power to change your life. I utilize an arsenal of tools in my practice tailoring my approach to best suit each individuals needs and circumstances. Therapies can include the use of narrative, interpersonal, emotion-focused, solution-focused, cognitive behavioural, play based and others.
