I am passionate about working with clients who are seeking to improve their sleep, energy, focus and attention and/or who would like to experience less reactivity, racing thoughts, or panic attacks. People who deal with anxiety, high stress levels, PTSD, are recovering from concussion, or children or adults who have ADHD, autism or learning disabilities are the clients I see the most. Following a series of sessions, it is very rewarding to see the frequency, intensity or duration of symptoms subside and clients more able to access and use tools such as mindfulness, meditation or yoga in order to manage day to day stresses.

I’m experienced helping clients dealing with: anxiety, stress, depression, grief, anger, burnout, relationship problems, divorce, sleep / insomnia issues, among others.
We’re all prone to personal challenges, loss, relationship struggles and times when it's hard to cope. Seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. I use a person-centred collaborative process with my clients and tailor therapy to each individual. I believe empathy begins with understanding life from another person's perspective, and is done without any judgement whatsoever. I provide an empathetic, trusting and confidential environment and offer support, coping tools, and encouragement to open up, identify strengths, change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behaviours.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors
What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Ottawa from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in Ottawa or counsellors who specialise in sleep in Ottawa, or simply a Ottawa sleep counsellor, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Ottawa or counsellors who specialise in insomnia in Ottawa, or simply an Ottawa insomnia counsellor, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.
