Announcement icon During the COVID-19 pandemic I will provide video and phone sessions with clients upon request.
Are you concerned about your child's or adolescent's mental health and desire prompt assistance? I work with children and adolescents who present with a wide range of issues that are preventing them from functioning successfully at school and are negatively impacting their relationships with peers and family. Over the 35 years I have worked in the helping profession, I have been deeply influenced by the resiliency and the desire for change demonstrated by my child and adolescent clients, and their parents/legal guardians.
I use an integrative approach, focusing on therapeutic relationship, to promote real change -- not solely coping skill acquisition. In addition to being a generalist, I have interest in working with clients who have experienced abuse and/or other trauma. Additionally, I have training in treating adolescents who are demonstrating features of BPD.
Apart from private practice, I also have many years of experience within the public sector, most recently at the Royal Ottawa Hospital. This has afforded me an awareness of community services that may benefit clients and families. Please feel free to contact me for a phone consultation regarding how I might be of assistance to help your child or adolescent.
