"As human beings we often have a tendency to disregard the pain we experience and to soothe the discomfort eventhough this tends not to be long lasting. If there is any suffering that comes along the way we often deal with it by "trying to quit on our own" however, studies have shown that we often fail at that behavioral level. Therefore, psychotherapy provides an opportunity for clients to reflect on their vulnerabilities in a safe and professional environment. As a result, it is important to find the best fit for such a vulnerable process to unfold."

"Are you coping silently and alone? I want to let you know that you do not have to. With compassion and support, we can work together to acknowledge, understand and explore your difficulties, and work towards positively transforming your life. I enjoy helping individuals develop self-compassion. I understand that a person’s ‘inner critic’ (inner critical voice) plays a huge role in their life. Our work together can help ease negative self-judgment. My ultimate goal is to have clients speak to themselves as they would speak to someone they admired. Life can be pretty nasty; your inner voice does not have to be."

"When we have suffered over a long period of time without much support or compassion, we come to rely on certain ways of being and relating that keep us safe but isolated from ourselves and those we love. This is normal considering what we have experienced. Trauma and lack of early nurturing skew our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. Neither can be trusted, and this determines how we are in relationship within and with others. At the core of all of this is our longing to be in nurturing relationships because the need to feel loved, wanted, and accepted are so innate in us. Therefore, feeling the converse: rejection and shame is a blow to our very sense of self. We reject because we really want to be needed and accepted, and yet we are afraid. The pain we feel in this dichotomy is profound. "

"I am a Registered Psychotherapist, supporting individuals with a variety of concerns. I help clients to identify parts of themselves, or their lives, they would like to change. In the process, clients gain a better understanding of their internal experience, their relationships, and the concerns causing them problems. The therapeutic approach I use is tailored to meet the individual needs of every client, recognizing the diverse factors that affect our sense of selves and view of the world. Some clients come in looking for direct support and/or skills to cope with specific concerns, while others are looking for understanding, support, and a safe place to work through difficult issues. Therapy is a collaborative process, and, thus, goals are developed together. It is of utmost importance that I maintain a space that feels safe, supportive, and helpful for each person I encounter in their therapeutic process."

"Unresolved embodied psychic trauma underlies many common psychological issues such as chronic anxiety and depression. Therefore, I employ a variety of integral psycho-somatic psychotherapeutic methods such as EMDR & IBP, designed to access the unconscious psyche wherein unresolved trauma is stored. These methods facilitate the disintegration of embodied trauma by activating the body to sense where trauma is stored, the mind to remember the trauma, & the heart to feel, express & release it. The majority of my clients are in awe of the journey activated by these methods, & profoundly grateful for the transformative results. "

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counselling) Counsellors
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Ottawa can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counsellors in Ottawa help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Ottawa Counsellors work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Ottawa all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Ottawa academic counsellor or school counsellor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Ottawa are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Ottawa you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Ottawa and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Ottawa or family therapy in Ottawa.
