Cecilia Taiana, PhD, RP, Licensed Psychoanalyst in Ottawa
I am a Registered Psychotherapist located in Ottawa providing psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to individuals, couples, and families. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing services that span from therapy for depression and anxiety to grief counseling, emotional and functional adjustments, PTSD, stress management, couples counseling and beyond. I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients' individual needs to help them attain personal growth. Typically, you can expect to discuss with me the events currently happening in your life and your personal history relevant to your concerns.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, with their unique emphasis on interpersonal relationships and attachments, will help you see the issues, whether physical or psychological, from new perspectives enabling you to respond differently. Therapy has the potential of affecting long-range vulnerability by altering the way you deal with stressors and achieving enduring changes in your life.
I pay full attention while listening to your words and expressions of emotions; together we will recognize recurring themes and patterns, and detect ways you avoid distressing thoughts and feelings. I will help you discuss past experiences while always keeping the focus on present interpersonal relationships.
