APPROACH TO TREATMENT

Youstina takes a holistic and culturally sensitive approach to therapy. Therapy is not “one size fits all”. She selects the approach based on what fits best with what the client is dealing with. She develops an individualized treatment plan that suits the client’s needs. Youstina specializes in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Person-Centred Therapy. She strives to help empower clients to create positive change in their lives. She creates an environment that is non-judgemental and supportive in order to ensure her clients feel validated and respected. Youstina’s goal is to help clients learn how to overcome their obstacles and become the person that they want to be.
