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.

The body keeps the score. I help trauma survivors live full, and connected lives. I have many years of experience working with survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault , as well as harmful, abusive, or neglectful childhood experiences. Trauma may impact your self-esteem, or create relationship issues, anxiety, alienation from the body, feelings of being disconnected from yourself and others. A central focus of my work has been supporting clients impacted by trauma without the lens of pathology. That’s to say: there’s nothing wrong with you at all. Your way of being in the world was developed as means of protection.

My experience has included work in various mental health settings, with First Responders and survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
Anxiety, trauma and difficulties within relationships can affect your life in so many ways. In my practice, I can help you become "unstuck", to work through and move forward from the feelings, behaviors, memories or situations that are preventing you from living how you want to. If you're having a hard time coping with anxiety or low mood, struggling in a relationship or find yourself unable to move forward after a traumatic event, I can help. I use effective treatment approaches in a laid back, safe and nonjudgmental environment so that we can work together towards the changes you want to see in your life.

Are you tired of struggling with a past trauma? Symptoms of PTSD after a trauma are completely normal, but sometimes we can get stuck in a vicious cycle of negative thoughts, intense emotions, and feeling on edge. All of this can feel overwhelming and exhausting and like life is never going to get better. We can help: physical & sexual abuse survivors, veterans, first responders (e.g. police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, nurses and doctors), and people who have had traumatic grief & loss. If you are looking to regain your life back and reconnect to what's important, we can help.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behavior includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.

If you're looking for a counsellor that has treated clients who've experienced sexual abuse in Ottawa or for Ottawa sexual abuse counselling, these professionals provide confidential support for individuals in an abusive relationship. They include sexual abuse counsellors, sexual abuse psychologists and sexual abuse therapists. Counsellors can help with child abuse in Ottawa and sexual violence in Ottawa. An Ottawa counsellor can identify the signs and causes of sexual abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to shelters.
