SPECIALIZING IN POSTPARTUM AND PERINATAL SUPPORT. Nothing in life prepares you for your new role as mom. You can read all the books, take the classes, talk to all your friends, but until that squalling newborn is placed in your arms - no one can explain to you what it all means and feels like. And just as each of our relationships are unique to who we are- so is our adjustment into becoming mothers. We will carry our strengths but also our wounds into this new role. And although we may expect endless joy we may also find depression , anxiety, anger, or hopelessness.

I have training and experience working with people navigating difficult life transitions, living through grief, healing from abuse and trauma, and coping with depression , anxiety, and sleep issues.
Each one of us deserves a relationship in which we feel deeply heard with warmth and compassion.  I hold respect for the stories and journeys of people’s lives and understand that life events, relational difficulties, or mental health concerns can significantly impact our ability to feel steady, connected, and whole. It is my hope that through focused and purposeful conversations, the people that I work with can move towards lasting and meaningful change in their lives and find their way.

These include anxiety and depression , work burnout, and living with chronic illness.
Are you looking to develop insight into how to change negative patterns of thinking and behaviour in your life? I use cognitive behavioural therapy, which is based on years of research and empirical evidence, to help people get to the roots of their problems and make lasting change. For some clients, I integrate mindfulness training into my approach. This involves developing self-compassion, accepting what we cannot control and living in the present moment. I strongly believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, and take a very active role in guiding my clients.

My focus areas are trauma, self-esteem, anxiety, addiction, anger, depression , self-harm, and relationship issues.
I have been passionate about helping others for as long as I can remember; whether it was tutoring younger students, lending a listening ear to friends, or just providing support to those around me. This led me to studying Psychology and obtaining a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Ottawa. To further learn about the human mind and what makes us tick, I enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology with Yorkville University. I believe that we all have the capacity to overcome life’s challenges and sometimes we just need a little help getting there. That is where psychotherapy comes into play.

Are you experiencing a period of life transition? Of indecision raising inner tensions? Are you looking to regain energy? Or interested in understanding patterns underlying your life? What if underneath day to day challenges lies an opportunity to understand yourself better? As we go through life, we must adapt to the demands of our environment, sometimes at the expense of our innate nature. This phenomenon may result in developing discomforts (such as anxiety and depression ). Exploring the psyche provides an opportunity to re-enter into relation with all the aspects of our psyche, towards harmony with oneself and others.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Ottawa. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
