Cody has worked with adults who have struggled with a wide variety of concerns, including generalized and social anxiety, intrusive thoughts and worries, mood disorders (e.g., depression), low motivation, low assertiveness, interpersonal struggles, troubles with public speaking, learning disabilities, general stress management, school and workplace stress, and challenges with effective decision-making. 

Cody uses evidence-based treatments in his approach, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), exposure therapy and DBT informed interventions. He works with individuals to help them identify and meet their own goals. During treatment, Cody has also worked with individuals regarding interpersonal conflict and learning healthy community patterns and interpersonal effectiveness skills. He also worked with individuals to help them develop strong coping and relapse prevention skills.

Cody believes in a strength-based approach where he helps individuals identify what works best for them, so that they can take advantage of the skills they already have. He also likes to help people understand how their brain works and how they can use this knowledge to better understand their struggles and improve their lives.
