Our comprehensive DBT program is committed to providing compassionate & effective treatment for individuals who may experience intense emotions (such as anxiety, depression, anger, shame, guilt), impulsive behaviours (such as self-harm, suicide , stealing, substance use, risky behaviours), & stormy relationships (which could look like switching between pushing people away & clinging to them, challenges with saying no). We also offer trauma treatment through Prolonged Exposure-DBT and/or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) because many of the current day experiences, emotions & views of the world, are based on previous experiences.

I have experience working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm behaviours, suicidal ideation , relationship issues, coping with stress, and trauma-related issues.
Life can sometimes become overwhelming and people can benefit from a safe, open space to share their stories and receive support. Counselling and psychotherapy are services delivered through a therapeutic relationship with someone who is trained to support others. Some benefits to engaging in counselling and psychotherapy are: finding ways to solve problems, improving your self-esteem, practicing new and more positive behaviours, learning to manage emotions from stressors, developing a greater degree of self-awareness, learning to love and accept yourself, and improving your overall well-being.

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 .

Substance use, trauma and mental health issues can put a significant dent in someone's quality of life. From simply being uncomfortable with how much you are using, or how it is affecting your life, to wishing you could shut your brain or your memories off; to being suicidal or at risk of overdose. You don't need to do this alone. Talking to someone who has seen and helped others with these things can be immensely relieving. If your teenager is going through these problems, it is also relieving to know they are talking to someone about them. Trying to parent a teenager while they are going through this chaos can be challenging.

Some of my main areas of speciality are: anger, anxiety, childhood issues, personal crisis, depression, divorce, grief, self-improvement, separation, suicidal thoughts, trauma-related, and work-related concerns.
I work with a lot of different people, with a lot of different concerns and reasons for deciding to begin therapy. My aim is to treat each person as an individual by listening to them and their desires for moving forward with therapy. If you're married, engaged, or dating, and having difficulties in your relationship, we can explore those together. Whether you are younger or older, single or married, you have a story. By sharing your story, we can explore together where you came from, where you are now and where you want to go. I work at providing you with a safe environment where you can share your concerns.

Trauma occurs many ways – abuse, accidents, divorce, death and it can suck the life right out of you. Maybe you’ve had sleepless nights and restless mornings and it does not feel worth it to get out of bed. Maybe you've thought of harming yourself or possibly had suicidal thoughts. Trauma can affect all parts of your life; your relationships, your ability to work, your ability to feel safe and happy. Sometimes you feel like all is well and that you have dealt with it. You feel fine and 6 months later it feels like it just happened, It is possible to get your life back. Reach out, I can help.

Individuals carry a large load of worries and responsibilities on a daily basis. The weight often becomes overwhelming over time and will interfere in our ways of thinking, feeling and dealing with life challenges. Some of the goals in psychotherapy are to move past the feelings of anxiety and hopelessness and to gain mastery in what was initially might have been perceived as unresolvable. For many, psychotherapy also contributes in developing a happier and more meaningful life.
