About

Sara Brooks

Registered Psychotherapist

Canadian Certified Counsesllor

 

Master of Counselling Psychology (MC)

Doctor of Music (DMus)

As we move through an increasingly confusing and difficult world, reaching out for support can be tough. As a psychotherapist, I believe it is my privilege to support adults, adolescents, and couples as they move toward healing and authentic, value-guided living.

 

My desire is to give individuals a safe space where they can be heard and empowered as we develop tools to help manage life’s challenges.

 
 

My Approach 

I draw inspiration from a branch of psychodynamic theory known as attachment theory. The attachment framework allows me to connect a client’s development and childhood experiences with adult challenges and relationship behaviour. Attachment theory also helps me to better understand a client’s response system and the coping mechanisms that they use when experiencing challenges.
