Life happens and sometimes you need a little help learning new strategies for coping with life’s stressors —your child’s behaviour, transitions, new phases in your life, a traumatic event. An outside perspective can work wonders on your mental health and one rooted in evidence-based research provides even better results. I am a bilingual registered psychotherapist and certified counsellor focusing on children, parenting, and youth and young adults. I practice in a “positive space” and celebrate diversity. I am committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where you can share and express all aspects of your identities.

I provide individual therapy for children, adolescents and adults presenting with a wide range of challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, resiliency, emotion regulation, parenting support as well as other life transitional issues.
My practice is focused on empowering clients to make informed decisions about their own change while providing a compassionate and supportive space. As a person-centered therapist, I seek to enhance one’s quality of life and encourage clients to create their own solutions to situations as they define them; inviting new ways of thinking without imposing one’s own views and to emphasize and allow personal choice and control over one’s own problems while also exploring personal goals and values. I believe humans have the capacity to enhance self-efficacy, confidence, and one’s own belief that they can achieve their goals.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Ottawa, ON provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Ottawa build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
