Marizabel takes a gentle and warm approach to working with her clients. She understands the delicate nature of the counselling process and she believes strongly in creating a safe, non-judgmental, and healing environment for clients to explore their strengths and resiliency. Marizabel meets clients wherever they are in their journey, and ensures that her clients feel heard and understood.
Marizabel is passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families to help them heal and grow. She honours that each individual is unique, and ensures that each treatment plan reflects this. She takes a cultural-and-trauma-informed lens and uses Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and mindfulness to guide clients on their therapeutic journey.
Marizabel honours how important the connection between a therapist and client is and therefore, she offers a free 20-minute phone or video consultation to explore whether she is the right fit for you. To accommodate your schedule, Marizabel offers a variety of daytime, and weekend appointment times.
