You know what you need to do: Worry less. Sleep more. React appropriately. Be more disciplined. Control your temper. Say ‘no’ more. Take better care of yourself. And you’d do them too, if only your job weren’t so stressful, day-to-day life was easier, someone would help out…if only it weren’t a pandemic, you weren’t plagued by your past, you weren’t so scattered. But 'if only' never comes and the things you know you should do, don’t happen. In quiet moments, you wonder if it’ll always be like this. You want to change. You want hope. You want ease. What if I told you that the ease you seek is possible, even when life is challenging?

As your therapist, I create a safe, comfortable, and non-judgemental environment where I allow you to express who you are – the good and the bad. During this vulnerable process, I offer gentle support in reaching your therapeutic goals, by helping you make sense of the issues you are facing, gain insight into your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, facilitate and enhance communication, connect with your inner resilience, implement changes, develop compassion towards yourself and others, and renew connections with people in your life.

Hello, I'm Thanh (pronounced Tang)! I work with clients who are struggling with their mental health by drawing their strengths and helping them develop greater resiliency. Issues my clients tend to face are stress, anxiety, major transition periods in life, past trauma, grief, mood disorders (such as depression), relationship problems, communication and social skills, and/or low self-esteem. Together, we collaborate to build habits and systems in response to life's challenges, and build a life that clients enjoy living rather than letting the days pass by.

Life can be overwhelming at times... You may be suffering from trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, depression, or struggling with relationship difficulties...Why not use professional help and see how science and therapy benefit you? We could together analyze what your current difficulties are and determine contributed factors for these issues. The primary goals for therapy are positive changes, new options, eliminating or reducing symptoms and/or using better coping strategies. The sessions are structured, yet relaxed.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Ottawa are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Ottawa then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Ottawa, or Child Psychologists in Ottawa.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Ottawa psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Ottawa specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
