For youth and young adults, my narrative therapy approach centres on you as the expert in your own life.
Life happens and sometimes you need a little help learning new strategies for coping with life’s stressors —your child’s behaviour, transitions, new phases in your life, a traumatic event. An outside perspective can work wonders on your mental health and one rooted in evidence-based research provides even better results. I am a bilingual registered psychotherapist and certified counsellor focusing on children, parenting, and youth and young adults. I practice in a “positive space” and celebrate diversity. I am committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where you can share and express all aspects of your identities.

I want you to know that there is hope for you to find healing and the tools to write a new story. You are not alone.

Narrative Counsellors
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Ottawa Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Ottawa.
