She provides treatment for individuals and couples dealing with relationship and marital difficulties, depression and low mood, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, health anxiety, stress, phobias, panic attacks, ritualistic behaviour, obsessive thoughts, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and situational/life stressors. Dr. Gomes’ approach to therapy is personalized based on individual needs, and that of support, collaboration and empowerment. She has a caring attitude, open-mind, and inherent compassion that focuses on helping people build upon their strengths and move towards achieving and maintaining positive changes in their lives. Treatment sessions focus on exploring what is currently getting in the way of productivity, relationships and happiness, and developing skills to tackle future challenges with confidence.
In addition to working from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) framework, she applies elements of Mindfulness, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) when appropriate.
