What does a first session with you look like?

Hello, I'm Shirley, Do you ever find it hard to feel you are over-pulled in a million directions, and feel that you are unable to fit it all in 24 hours? eg. (Full-time student, full-time work and assignments). Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work and health? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? After a while, you even forget how to be kind to yourself. I want to help high performers manage anxiety and avoid burnout. I have been there and wanted to walk away from my all responsibilities. We'll use a whole self approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body and spirit. I also integrate mindfulness, yoga and art to help you develop a stronger relationship with yourself. Whether you're dealing with overwhelming relationship issues or cycles of anxiety and depression, I'm here to help. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. I have helped lots of patients just like you and after a while, they say whey didn't I do this before? Let's work together!

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practice, and I use medication to treat my patients and follow up on their progress in case another medication would be more appropriate. I refer my patients to psychotherapists or psychologists for therapy plans. My patients are from 7-70 years old.
