Providing virtual sessions for folks across Ontario and in person or virtual sessions for Ottawa folks. For over 20 years, I have specialized in treating people with problematic substance use and substance use disorders. I work within a compassionate, collaborative, and trauma-informed approach. The right way to make meaningful change is the way that works best for you. I'm here to work with you on finding that way.
Changing your relationship with alcohol and/or other drugs is often very challenging and can be hard to sustain. I provide individual counselling designed to support you in being able to reduce the negative impacts of substance use, and increase your quality of life now and moving forward.
Together we will create a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate space that promotes effective and sustainable change. If you would like to explore if I'm the right therapist for you, please don't hesitate to contact me for a free consultation.
