* Daytime & Evening Appts* Online Therapy * Is it time to move forward? Are you ready to grow, discover, and initiate change? Perhaps something from the past has a hold on you or you are caught up in worry about the future. Maybe you can't quite name it, but just know you don't feel right. Your emotions may be confusing to you or you may be feeling caught up in a whirlwind, unable to take that next step. Therapy doesn't have to have a strict agenda; instead, it's about finding the path that best suits YOU. Insight, understanding, new perspectives, coping skills, and new ways of being are all part of of being in therapy.

Working together, the focus is on resolving underlying issues and highlighting strengths, coping skills, and supports, such as community, beliefs, and values .
We all go through challenging times in our lives. Many of us decide to seek counselling when we feel stuck, unsure how to move forward in a relationship with a spouse, child, sibling, or parent; or a colleague or co-worker. At these times, we can be anxious, depressed, angry, easily irritated, or simply depleted. Intense feelings or responses are often a sign that something important needs to be addressed.

I use a variety of techniques, such as emotion regulation, therapeutic writing, mindfulness-based practices, and coping skills development.
*CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* "The only way to find out where I was was to get out of the way and let myself happen." (Mark Epstein). In my practice, I help folks identify and understand the negative and self-limiting stories that they tell themselves. Often, these stories, or negative thought loops, keep people from living the lives that they desire due to the feelings of anxiety or sense of being ‘stuck’ that they produce. I advise folks in emotion regulation skills and techniques that can help them manage their emotions and navigate their situations, which can lead to more calm and grounded experiences.

My role is to work collaboratively with you, in a safe and non-judgemental environment, to uncover past experiences and equip you with coping skills to navigate these difficulties going forward.
I have been passionate about helping others for as long as I can remember; whether it was tutoring younger students, lending a listening ear to friends, or just providing support to those around me. This led me to studying Psychology and obtaining a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Ottawa. To further learn about the human mind and what makes us tick, I enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology with Yorkville University. I believe that we all have the capacity to overcome life’s challenges and sometimes we just need a little help getting there. That is where psychotherapy comes into play.

All too often, when we experience painful thoughts, feelings or sensations, we respond in ways that are self-defeating and self-destructive. Over time, these habitual response patterns can manifest in a variety of ways such as anxiety, depression, phobias, eating disorders or addiction. Psychotherapy can help you with the immediate problem or situation you are facing. More importantly, it can help you gain insight as to the root cause of your emotional pain, to come to a place of self-acceptance and self-compassion, and to adopt positive coping skills in order to live a more engaged and meaningful life.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in Ottawa can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Ottawa or for an Ottawa coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Ottawa coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills therapists.
