I believe we all have many strengths although at times we may lose sight of them—I provide honest feedback to help mirror these strengths back to you. I believe that we all, at one time or another, find it difficult to explore our thoughts and feelings—I honour such acts of courage, bringing confidentiality, non-judgement, and unconditional care to session. Working at a pace that feels right for you, I provide support and gentle challenges as you process your experiences and develop insight into your life so that you may heal, grow, and ultimately be free to live your life in a way that is fulfilling and true to who you are.

Counselling is a collaborative endeavour between clients and therapist. As clients, you bring your physical and mental presence, honesty and commitment to work on yourselves or your relationship. As therapist, I bring my attentive presence, theoretical knowledge, support and ability to frame the sessions in a safe, confidential and respectful way. Trust is an essential ingredient of the therapeutic relationship. My commitment to you and to this trust is to explain proposed interventions clearly and to answer your questions as candidly as I can.

At times life can be demanding and stressful, even more so if you feel alone and are unsure who to turn to for support and help. But no one should feel like they have to figure everything out on their own. I believe that every person is the expert of their own life but sometimes we need a new perspective or a safe space to talk, open up, and feel heard. As a counsellor, I offer my clients a non-judgmental, empathic, supportive space to fully explore their inner self, thoughts and feelings on their personal journey towards growth and healing.

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.

Currently Accepting New Clients! I want more for you than managing your anxiety, overcoming grief, or lifting yourself out of depression. I want your life to be bursting with joy. I want you to feel that you are contributing to make this world a better place. I want you to know the joys of an intimate relationship, and either find someone, or encourage the one you are with, to grow along with you and build a better life together. I want you to feel confident and know your values and be able to stand for them against the world.

Tired of being pathologized and feeling isolated? You are not alone. While each person possesses unique resources and skills, trauma responses (fight, flight, freeze, fawn) can throw one off balance from their consistent, preferred way of living.

As a psychotherapist my role is to provide both individuals and couples with an encouraging and supportive space. My approach is founded on the knowledge that transformational change can only come from within. Every client that walks through my door has insight into their own healing process, it is just clouded by the challenges they are facing. My role is to cultivate and strengthen one’s capacity to access intrinsic needs, beliefs, and identity while acknowledging the courage and resiliency in making the choice to do so. I aim to promote a more balanced way of relating to oneself and others during times of hardship.

Using a client-centred, culturally responsive and anti-oppressive approach, we will find therapeutic strategies that build on your strengths and develop a healthier relationship with what you may see as “weaknesses” as part of a holistic approach to mental health and wellness. This approach in my practice means that I do not limit my clients to the use of one therapeutic technique, but rather that I will work with you to see which method you are comfortable with and which builds on your inherent strengths.

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.
