Right now our world is at a new level of unpredictability and may be triggering uncomfortable feelings. I am here to create a safe and supportive space for you to explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences within transitions life presents. In our work together we practice and reflect on the integration of new strategies to meet your needs on a deeper level, often involving mindfulness and self-compassion, trauma informed somatic experiencing, and attachment and ego-state (i.e. inner child & critic) therapeutic approaches.

Sometimes we all need a little support and guidance to help us through challenging moments in our life. Maybe you are dealing with anxiety, a health related stress or some parenting or caregiving stressors. Perhaps you are grieving a loss of something or someone important to you or maybe you are in the process of a life transition and are seeking some support. Regardless of what brings you here, we will work together to develop a better understanding of your current situation and how it impacts you in all areas of your life.

I have over thirty years experience working with people, first as a child and youth worker and since 2000 as a psychotherapist. My philosophy is that most people experience life challenges, mood problems and relationship issues from time to time. Since I believe that these things are normal I work to help clients work through issues that may be undermining their happiness and success and find ways to increase happiness and life satisfaction. I have great faith in the human ability to grow, learn and to come to peace.

I accompany clients from a place of compassion, creativity, warmth, and humour as they move from the wounds of interpersonal, systemic, and intergenerational trauma (e.g., neglect, identity-based violence, childhood or intimate partner violence, premature death) towards fulfilling lives rooted in posttraumatic growth. In addition to working with clients who have experienced trauma and its related effects, I also work with clients who identify as experiencing stress (including anxiety disorders), sadness or depression, persistent guilt and shame, life transitions, grief, and existential questions related to life purpose and identity.

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Welcome to Shades of Therapy! Every now and then, life throws a curveball at us which could leave a person feeling confused, alone, and unenthusiastic about life. It could also make it challenging to complete daily tasks. Surely there’s another way right? To live life the way you want to, and feel truly happy and fulfilled. Like George Harrison says, "It's all in the mind". I truly believe that asking for help is a sign of strength, and it means you are aware enough to take care of your mind as you do your body.

I originate from a small central Ontario community and since coming to Ottawa for graduate work have not strayed. I have a lovely spouse and two amazing daughters 18 and 13.

My personal and professional interests lend currently towards emotions and the interplay with secure/insecure attachment with its impact on mood. As a therapist I am current in Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectic Behavioral, attachment and Emotion Focused Therapy among others. Wait Time 4 to 6 Weeks.

A great deal of our life is spent trying to eliminate the issues that we are struggling with. This can be exhausting and often directs us away from the life that we want to live. My intention as a therapist is to empower my clients find more effective and flexible ways of relating to their struggles so that they can reconnect with the kind of life they find the most meaningful to them. I provide individual, couple, and group psychotherapy services through my practice at Ottawa River Integrative Mental Health.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Ottawa?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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.
