Searching for a therapist can be exhausting and even frustrating. You have probably read at least a few other profiles before this one, and if that’s true, the terms “safe space” and “inclusive” might be starting to sound like buzzwords. I don’t mean this to be insulting – safety and inclusivity are important. The challenge lies in the fact that there are so many wonderful and welcoming practitioners available that identifying the best fit is tricky. I hope that my short introduction is similarly welcoming AND different enough that you can quickly decide whether I have the skills and qualities you are looking for.

I often wonder why there is so much pain and suffering. I realized that what we need is not homeostasis or a tensionless state. Instead, we need the right amount of tension for change, growth, and development to take place. I had the privilege to journey with people facing different aspects of the human condition (suffering, grief, loss, meaninglessness, etc.) I am often amazed by human determination, courage, and strength in the process toward growth and development as they face life challenges. Life is full of challenges and adversity; it would be a privilege to journey with you toward a meaningful and purpose-driven life.

The weight of our experiences, choices, and life circumstances can get heavy at times. During these periods it can be difficult to see outside of our pain, to choose an alternate path, or to create meaning. In therapy, I work with adults, who are struggling with common issues such as: depressed mood, anxiety, stress, self-criticism, feeling disconnected, relationship dissatisfaction, and parenting issues. I will work with you to explore ways for you to feel more confident in your choices, as well as connected to yourself and the important people in your life.

Self-Harming Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Ottawa or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Ottawa counsellors provide counselling for self harming in Ottawa. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in Ottawa, psychologists, and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in Ottawa or treatment for self harming.
