Pain may be inevitable in life, but suffering is not. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)--an approach that combines mindfulness and behaviour therapy--to help you address the issues that cause unnecessary suffering. We will work together toward helping you (a) to learn new skills to deal more effectively with difficult thoughts and feelings that you are experiencing and (b) to find new ways to live and to relate to people in your life that are aligned with your values.

I am available to help adults of any age on an individual basis with common psychological issues and problems including: depression; insomnia; anxiety and panic; trauma and PTSD; shyness and social anxiety; anger; obsessive or intrusive thoughts; work stress and burnout; relationship problems at home or at work.

I supervise several ACT therapists around the Ottawa area (central and south). In the event you wish to meet with another ACT therapist (including a woman or Francophone therapist), I would be happy to provide you with a referral.
