Thank you for considering me as your therapist! I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individual adults. I believe that therapy, as a healing space, is also an interactive phenomenon that has a powerful effect when expectations are clear. I am originally from Cuba. My theoretical orientation is eclectic with an emphasis on Cognitive-Behavioral as well as Jungian approaches. My aim in therapy is to help the individuals reach out into the strongest versions of themselves. I am committed to establish a self-to-self connection with you and bring alive the person that you want become.

I can offer you an integrative and person centered approach to therapy which combines art therapy , eco-therapy and talk therapy.
You deserve to live the life that you dream of: full of potential, fulfillment and joy. There may be things that are stopping you from stepping into this life: depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem or body image issues. Therapy can help you process these blocks, and create new space for your potential and growth. The therapy I provide may invite you to: explore your inner child, family dynamics, dreams and process shadow work. I work from an integrative and holistic framework, because I believe that in order to address yourself as a whole person, the therapy you access should be whole too.

I use a person centered psychodynamic approach and draw on resources from meditation to journalling to art .
People come to see me for help in healing from past trauma, support in facing challenges of today and for assistance in growing into who they believe they are meant to be. Many are survivors of abuse, physical and sexual, and are wrestling with the effects of that trauma on their day to day lives and relationships. Many who come to see me also struggle with questions of meaning and faith: they sense there is a sacredness to life but have found little help from traditional communities of faith. some wrestle with issues of guilt and shame and seek healing on that deep level. All are looking to walk strong on their path.

You may be struggling to hold everything together. You may feel helpless, or that no one around you understands how you are feeling. You might be easily distracted. You feel hopeless and may lack the motivation to get through even the most basic of tasks. You might feel anxious, depressed, or just blah. You may be caring for a young human who is struggling in school or at home. They may be sensitive & have a big heart but struggle to cope with their big emotions. As an Art Therapist and Death Doula, I can help folk work with difficult emotions one may be experiencing, together in a space created with safety, kindness, & compassion.

I can help you reclaim parts of your self that you avoid or may fear through art and embodied dialogue.
Life can often feel chaotic. The reality is that changes are presented to us outside of our control and we find ourselves faced with the task of making decisions and choices that will decide the course of our future. These untimely decisions and choices can leave us feeling bewildered and disoriented. To complicate things further, we can find ourselves stuck in emotional and behavioural patterns that inhibit and hold us back from making the decisions we would like to or that would be best for us. Sometimes it’s difficult to even know what we would like to do or what is best for us. What should you aim towards?

Art Therapy Counsellors
It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in Ottawa is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Ottawa Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centres, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled Ottawa art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
