Style & Approach:
Hi, my name is Gabby Switzer and I am a Registered Social Worker. My approach to counselling is grounded by a radically non-judgmental lens, as well as anti-oppressive and intersectionally feminist frameworks. In furthering my clinical education, I received training and certification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Spiritually Informed Psychotherapy. With the use of these modalities, I commit to joining you in challenging unhelpful biases or thought patterns that take up too much space in your life. Whether you are dealing with changes in important relationships, or struggling with your identity, our work together will help you move through these experiences with more ease and greater perspective.
I have significant experience supporting individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, identity formulation, relationship issues, and low self-esteem. I firmly believe that you are the expert of your own life and experience. By using a combination of therapeutic tools, I aim to support clients in uncovering the skills that they have developed throughout their lives to address the problems that they are facing today. Your goals guide our work and through collaboration we will endeavour to achieve them.
