My clients come to me because they are caught in a rut, whether it's through a depressive episode, anxiety , or major life transitions (separation, job loss, etc). Being truly heard and understood is the first step to healing and that is my primary goal. Through our work together, clients find themselves better able to identify and change unwanted patterns in their lives, and are able to understand and value themselves more as human beings. My clients leave therapy empowered with better self-awareness, acceptance and the proper tools to cope better in their lives.

Are you feeling stuck in your relationships or with your feelings? We all experience challenges at times and have normal periods of ups and downs. The difficulty is when we feel stuck – either in a particular mood state (such as depression or anxiety ), in our reactions to triggers, or in our relationships. I approach counselling as a creative and collaborative process to tap into your innate wisdom, access your inner resources, and develop healthy coping strategies in a safe and supportive environment. I will see your strengths as well as your struggles. My goal is to guide you as you discover the path that is best for you.

Anxiety , trauma and difficulties within relationships can affect your life in so many ways. In my practice, I can help you become "unstuck", to work through and move forward from the feelings, behaviors, memories or situations that are preventing you from living how you want to. If you're having a hard time coping with anxiety or low mood, struggling in a relationship or find yourself unable to move forward after a traumatic event, I can help. I use effective treatment approaches in a laid back, safe and nonjudgmental environment so that we can work together towards the changes you want to see in your life.

I serve adults experiencing anxiety , depression, grief, perfectionism, transitions as well as general difficulties often arising in life.
Therapeutic alliance is one of the biggest factors of change–I encourage you to schedule a free consultation to see if we might be a good match and ask any questions you may have. My general approach to therapy is: identify the context and function of thoughts/emotions/behavior as they relate to your goals; practice noticing patterns in action; and from this place of recognition, start to tell a story aligned with your values. To suffer is human–but to grow and heal is also human. I offer evidence-based care with a focus on mindfulness, compassion-focused interventions, as well as on uncovering and elevating your existing strengths.

I'm passionate about working with those facing anxiety , self-esteem struggles and periods of change.
We all stumble and work to find our way back, but sometimes life adds challenges that make these ups and downs harder to navigate. Relationship struggles, shifting goals, social pressures and the added stress that comes with change can leave us overwhelmed, make us feel stuck, make us question if we're good enough or make make our decisions feel impossible. Support can help us to examine our paths and patterns and to regain our confidence so that we can build the life we want.

Anxiety Counsellors
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for an Ottawa anxiety counsellor, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counselling in Ottawa.
