Announcement icon While precautions are in place to help prevent the spread of CoVid19 I will only be counseling by telephone or video chat.
I originate from a Northern Ontario community but have been happily settled in the Ottawa area for over 20 years. I am a bilingual (fluent in French and English), Social Worker and it has been my 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, 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. Lets work together to help you use your strengths and qualities to overcome life's challenges and build resilience and self esteem to face current and future challenges. I can offer appointments within 2-3 weeks of contact.
