In my 30 years of practice, I have gained much insight and expertise in supporting people. Many found unique ways to accept responsibility for their struggles, as it helped them make sense of the world (it's gotta be me, right?).This burden impaired their efforts to live a rich and fulfilling life (one with passion, healthy relationships and joy). The goal of eliminating that self-blame is necessary, it frees people to know they are deserving. It also helps to tap into existing strengths and abilities. The best outcome in therapy is when people remember themselves and are able to build the relationships & skills for life happiness.

Life can be full of stress, with some days being more overwhelming than others. It can be difficult to look inwards and realize that the skills and behaviours we have been using to cope with stress are not as effective as they used to be. Through this inward reflection, you have recognized that something needs to change and I congratulate you on doing so. This recognition can come with uncertainty about how to develop different ways to overcome the challenges that life presents us. Together we will navigate difficulties with negative emotions, disruptive behaviours, or family conflict and work towards making a positive change!

SPECIALIZATION in tweens/teens ages 12-18. I also work with adults. Do you want to make a change in your life? Find new ways to cope? Maybe I can help you. People may go to counselling when their own strategies are no longer working for them. I believe it's important to understand the root causes of certain thoughts and behaviours to develop the appropriate support. Such behaviours may include self-harm and aggression, which may mask underlying issues that I am hoping to uncover and help clients cope with.

The issues we sometimes face are far more complex than meets the eye. Our entire body and brain are often operating on auto-pilot, and much of the time we respond in ways that do not make sense. The connection between our genes, upbringing, life circumstances and events shape the way we respond to our environment. Anxiety, depression, grief, anger, family of origin or relationship issues, self-worth, trauma, personality and mood disorders are all a result of an overwhelmed system and its need to reach a more balanced state of being.

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. There are times in our lives where dark clouds roll in. The rain falls hard and heavy. We sit by the window and watch hoping for the sun to shine again. During such dark times, we reach out to family members for support, but family isn't always available to offer hope. If I have to define my practice in one word, that word is SAFETY. Safety means building a professional relationship based on trust and communication. It means working together to set a pace and direction. It may be processing traumatic memories or taking a break. This is something we work out together.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist, supporting individuals with a variety of concerns. I help clients to identify parts of themselves, or their lives, they would like to change. In the process, clients gain a better understanding of their internal experience, their relationships, and the concerns causing them problems. The therapeutic approach I use is tailored to meet the individual needs of every client, recognizing the diverse factors that affect our sense of selves and view of the world. Some clients come in looking for direct support and/or skills to cope with specific concerns, while others are looking for understanding, support, and a safe place to work through difficult issues. Therapy is a collaborative process, and, thus, goals are developed together. It is of utmost importance that I maintain a space that feels safe, supportive, and helpful for each person I encounter in their therapeutic process.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Ottawa provide help with child development and child education.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed well by a well-trained provider, 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 (likely in fewer than six sessions), 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 sees the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciate the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
