Regina D' Cruz
(She/her) MSc, RP(Qualifying)
I’m an internationally trained RP (Qualifying). I have expertise helping clients with issues including depression, work and school stress, anxiety, self-harm, self-esteem issues, and emotional dysregulation. I support folks with relationship issues of all kinds (intimate partner, peer, family of origin, parent-child), 2SLGBTQ+ identity exploration, the immigrant experience, and life transitions.
I take a trauma-informed, client-centered, and integrative approach, drawing from various modalities like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), mindfulness, narrative therapy, and strengths-based practices. I get to know you – your goals, needs, and challenges – and I tailor my approach based on what works best for you.
I believe the relationship I share with my client is of utmost importance.
While working together, you can expect a safe, compassionate, and judgment-free space allowing you to grow into a healthier version of yourself. I can help you focus and build on your strengths and supports, look for new perspectives, learn skills, and use them to work on yourself and your overall mental health.
Reaching out for help and allowing ourselves to be vulnerable takes a lot of courage and I look forward to working together if you are ready to take this step. Remember, one doesn’t have to be at their lowest to seek help!
