The world can be a dark and heavy place, and that's why I believe kindness, compassion, and hope are so important. I try to bring all of these values to my practice as a therapist, where I will strive to connect with you by cheering on your personal growth, sitting with you in the dark, and listening to your story. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain confidence. I offer a listening ear, tools and advice, and a safe-place where you can lay it all out and trust that you will be treated with honour and respect.

I have worked for over 10 years with survivors of sexual abuse /assault and domestic violence , as well as with people experiencing self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and trauma issues.
Many of us silently cope with difficulties in our lives. But you don't have to. Reaching out to a counsellor for support gives you the opportunity to explore what is holding you back and start improving your quality of life. People have the capacity to make positive changes in their lives with the right support and guidance. With support, you will tap into your strengths, find hope and heal emotional wounds. I work with individual adults who are experiencing mental health issues, trauma, negative self-esteem, sleep issues and relationship issues.

Abuse silences, isolates, confuses.
I was drawn to working with women in abusive relationships after two sexual assaults in my 20’s started me thinking about all the fear and trauma in women’s lives. Working in a battered women’s shelter, I realized many women are living under intolerable, often life-threatening conditions of control, threat and violence —and that it is the women, not their abusers, who are routinely judged and blamed, depicted as liars and mentally ill. I saw no pathology in the women coming to us for help. I saw bottomless grief. I saw terror, and shell shock, and women trying to protect their kids. I saw what can happen when women are not believed.

I specialize in therapy for narcissistic abuse ! Do you feel confused, doubt yourself and question your needs? Do you feel dismissed, invalidated, and uncared for in one or more of your important relationships? Are your feelings negated, minimized and you make yourself small to accommodate the other person’s unreasonable demands? You may be on the receiving end of a narcissistic abuse . Narcissistic abuse can lead to anxiety, depression and pervasive feelings of shame and self blame. Misuse of substances is often a maladaptive coping mechanism in the attempt to deal with constant emotional abuse , gaslighting and manipulation.

I can help you with: Depression, Anxiety Relationship conflicts, Anger & stress management, Trauma/ Abuse , Grief, parenting.
I believe that every person is equipped to make positive changes in his or her life to face challenges. Sometimes, the challenges that one may face can be so painful that it blinds the person from seeing potential solutions. While using my skills and training, we will work together, in building up a relationship based on trust. Together, we will explore and find out what is not working for you. And together we will work to determine what should be done, to improve your situation. I believe that we are all different, and that we deal with problems differently. I am flexible in the approach I use, to suit what is best for you.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for an Ottawa domestic abuse or domestic violence counsellor, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counselling in Ottawa.
