Accepting new clients starting April 2024 - I recognize that it takes a lot of courage to make the first step to reach out, and for that, I congratulate you. In working together, I invite you to discover yourself, empower you to process any wounded parts of your past, reach your goals, in a safe, secure and non-judgmental space. Through my work as a crisis counsellor, I have had the opportunity of working with survivors of Intimate-Partner Violence, complex grief and trauma, and tragic circumstances, in addition to providing support to first responders.

Therapeutic alliance is one of the biggest factors of change–I encourage you to schedule a free consultation to see if we might be a good match and ask any questions you may have. My general approach to therapy is: identify the context and function of thoughts/emotions/behavior as they relate to your goals; practice noticing patterns in action; and from this place of recognition, start to tell a story aligned with your values. To suffer is human–but to grow and heal is also human. I offer evidence-based care with a focus on mindfulness, compassion-focused interventions, as well as on uncovering and elevating your existing strengths.

As a therapist, I help clients whose moods hijack their lives & negatively impact their relationships, career and body. 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 (coaching fees are $ 200/60 minute session, therapy $ 170/60 minute).

It is my goal to provide my clients with a warm, nonjudgmental and honest environment where they can feel most comfortable exploring their thoughts, emotions and troubles. Much of my experience comes from working in mental health at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I have a passion for working with adolescents and adults as they develop the courage to explore their vulnerabilities on their journey towards wellness and fulfilment. My experience has allowed me to develop skills in working with depression, anxiety, grief, issues related to sexuality, emotional regulation, social fears and phobias, self-esteem and suicidal ideation.

Are you feeling stressed or working about too much in your life, or perhaps frustrated and stuck in your personal or work relationships? Perhaps a past negative experience is making you feel unable to move forward. Many people who are struggling with uncertainty have a hard time knowing what direction to go in. It may be that you’ve tried to handle things on your own, or put off reaching out for support because you feel you should be able to work through your challenges by yourself. Sometimes everyone around you seems to have answers, but all you feel is confused. Mostly, you don’t want to let others down and feel that you might.

When I look for a therapist for myself, I think of what I am struggling to make sense of: the death of a family member, a shift at work, changes in relationships, struggles managing the busyness of life... I'm looking to connect to these thoughts, these feelings, these sensations in a way that can help me first understand what is happening. After all, I never know what to do about something standing in my way if I don't know what it is first. The first thing I want my therapist to do with me is to help me see clearly. Then, we can take the time to figure out what to do about it.

Therapy is a sacred and safe space where change and acceptance are possible. Frequently, I find myself curious about the human experience and I have noticed that no one’s story is ever the same as another. In my experience, I have had the privilege of journeying with many people from various walks of life and often uncomfortable emotions are processed during our time together. It always surprises me how much untapped strength and resilience people possess and my role as their therapist is to help my clients come to this realization themselves.
