Do you feel like you are: Afraid of the uncertainty of the future due to a life transition (e.g. adulthood, mid-life, retirement)? Feeling lost or confused about who you are now? / Struggling in your job, relationships, and other facets of your life due to past trauma? / On an emotional rollercoaster or numb from grief, perhaps feeling unable to talk to anyone about what you are living through or perhaps feeling that your grief is being invalidated by others? / Unable to accomplish what you would like because anxiety is in the driver’s seat? / Less emotionally tolerant than before, but don’t quite know why? I get it.

You’re probably feeling overwhelmed, having scrolled through a million profiles and not sure who to pick to reach out to! Bottom line, you won’t know if a therapist is a good fit for you until you really get to know them. Much like a pair of shoes, you gotta try them on! Because the most important part of successful therapy is feeling comfortable and connected with your therapist. As a therapist, I try to create an atmosphere based on that famous east coast hospitality that we Newfoundlanders are so well known – a sense of warmth, comfort, connection and genuine caring.

Or perhaps you notice yourself turning to substance use to manage tough feelings? If you recognize yourself as living any of these experiences, you aren’t alone, and you definitely don’t have to go through it alone.

If you're facing problematic substance use or addiction you probably feel tired, out of control, and maybe even hopeless. The good news is, there is hope and you're not alone. Addiction comes in many different forms and is a complex issue to manage. If you or someone you love are looking for help or support please reach out. I support people with substance use, misuse, abuse, dependence, mental health concerns, as well as their family and friends who often feel helpless or uncertain as to how to move forward.

If you experience overwhelming emotions that stick around too long, have imbalanced thinking, cope poorly with your emotions & stress, have unstable/unhealthy relationships, low self esteem and an unstable sense of self, I can help. As a coach, I work with women bosses who despite all their success have one area of their lives where they feel they have lost their way, lost control, and lost touch with their true selves and their inner knowing.

I have been providing collaborative mental health and addiction services for youth, adolescents and adults in the Ottawa Region for the past 18 years. I work closely with individuals and families to identify the best treatment plans to meet their unique needs. Some techniques I use include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Collaborative Problem Solving, Mindfulness Integrated CBT, Trauma Practice and Addiction Issues. I use an assertive care approach which can provide some support between sessions, as needed, for clients to meet their goals with non-life-threatening mental health challenges. Many clients have found this very helpful.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Ottawa are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Ottawa then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Ottawa, or Child Psychologists in Ottawa.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Ottawa psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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.
