I originate from a Northern Ontario community but have been happily settled in the Ottawa area for over 15 years. I am a bilingual (fluent in French and English), Social Worker and it has been a great pleasure to work in the field of mental health social work with Children, Youth and Adults since 2006. I believe that everyone runs into challenges in their life that they shouldn't be expected to resolve alone and I am happy to be there to guide them on their road to recovery. Lets work together to re-establish fulfillment in your life.

I specialize in utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused, and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy techniques with clients struggling with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, family and relationship issues, anger issues, substance abuse, high risk behaviors, disordered eating, trauma and abuse.

Bilingual - French and English; Adults, Youth, Couples and Families. I work with Clients to help them use their strengths and qualities to overcome life's challenges and build resilience and self esteem to face future challenges as well. I can offer appointments within two weeks of contact.
