I practice from a family systems perspective, supported by attachment, psychodynamic and structural approaches.
As an individual, couple and family therapist, I am an advocate for personal and relational transformation. I endeavour to create a safe, confidential therapeutic space that supports the integration of the mind, body and spirit in psychological well-being. With individuals, I practice from a self-in-relationship psychotherapeutic orientation to address issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss. In couple therapy, I work from a psychobiological approach to help couples in distress (e.g., communication issues, post-affair recovery, parenting issues, addictions, personality issues). With families, I work systemically.

My framework is based on the science of attachment theory and psychodynamic approaches.
My theory of change is founded on the premise that healing and growth can emerge through nurturing interpersonal connections. I stand by the belief that we are relational beings, meaning that our interactions with others influence our mood, sense of self, and well-being. Through sessions, whether I work with you or your relationship, I facilitate dynamic interventions to create new bonding moments that foster cognitive awareness, emotional regulation, and behavioural changes. As a therapist, my goal is to help you shift from a place of reactiveness and hopelessness to a place of communication and connection.

I use a psychodynamic approach as well as acceptance and self-compassion therapy to name a few.
Hello and thank you for reviewing my profile. The first step to feeling better is to find the right therapeutic match for you. That means finding a therapist you connect with and feel respected by. It is NOT always easy. Yes, there are many excellent therapists, and I consider myself one of them. However, the right therapeutic fit (therapist and client) for one person may be the wrong fit necessarily for another. For this reason, I invite you to a complimentary online or phone meeting first where we can get to know each other and/or you can ask any questions you may.

My approach is integrative, stemming from a Psychodynamic foundation.
Are you experiencing emotional distress or feeling burdened by a personal difficulty? Sometimes we can feel confused about which path to take as we're confronted by life's challenges. If this sounds like your experience, talking to a therapist may be helpful. Together we can explore feelings, patterns, thoughts and behaviours that may be creating unwanted habits or obstacles in your life that you're ready to remove.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Ottawa, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
