Call Mrs. Maria Chiru
(613) 620-3642

I'm currently accepting referrals for new clients and I work with children, adolescents, couples, and families. My office is based in Manotick (Ottawa South), 20-30 minutes drive from Barrhaven, Nepean, Casselman, Metcalf, Winchester, Kemptville. At some point in our lives, everyone struggles with issues that feel overwhelming; sometimes we find solutions on our own, and there are times when we might need support from someone who is trained to help. If you are looking for help that is expert, confidential and tailored to your needs, contact me directly: 613-620-3642, info@chirucounselling.ca

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to the whole family, for a range of issues including family issues, separation/divorce, trauma/PTSD, personality disorders, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, difficulties within personal or family relationships, loss, bereavement, experiencing stress or problems related to work/school, parenting children or teens, etc.

When one family member is experiencing difficulties, it often affects all members. Couple or family counselling may be effective, if your family needs help with: parenting, step-parenting, blended families, coping with teen related issues, communication difficulties, family conflicts, separation and divorce, behaviour challenges, parent-child relationships, etc.

Since I have known Maria as a fellow student and professional, she has impressed me with her genuine caring personality. She does not hesitate to offer assistance and is very strength-focused, client-centered as she works to empower others to reach their goals. I have met few people as diligent and knowledgeable as Maria. Her experience within the education system is a gift to which I would refer anyone to seek and embrace for the rewards will come from knowing Maria as a therapist, colleague, and friend.

Stephen is a compassionate, non-judgmental, and empathic listener dedicated to his clients. He strives to provide the best possible therapy as well as the necessary support and guidance to help them navigate through life. His innate therapeutic skills, collaborative approach, and caring nature create a comfortable therapeutic environment. Stephen uses a variety of therapeutic modalities and interventions to help clients with issues ranging from suicidal ideation to depression to trauma. As a Certified Clinical Traumatologist, Stephen works with individuals experiencing the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) due to exposure to traumatic events. In addition, Stephen helps those experiencing trouble in their relationship due to infidelity, communication gaps, and conflict using a unique approach that repairs and strengthens the partnership. I highly recommend Stephen as a therapist due to his high ethical standards, professionalism, instinctive therapeutic skills, and genuine empathetic personality.
