I favour a holistic, integrative approach, tailored to meet your individual needs. Drawing on various modalities including mindfulness, CBT and ACT, we build on your strengths and resilience rather than focusing on pathology or diagnoses. Together, we identify thought and behaviour patterns no longer serving you, helping you to change and heal.

I am sensitive to the fact that problems clients bring might have a spiritual dimension and remain open to working with your personal meanings. I enjoy working with clients and consider it a privilege to be able to accompany them on their journeys of self-discovery and healing.

Hello! I work predominantly with adults and older teens who have lived through interpersonal, childhood, or complex trauma. I work from a trauma theory, body-centred and anti-oppressive framework. I typically include elements of somatics, mindfulness, compassion focus, and systems theory approaches. Area’s of exploration may include befriending the body, addressing negative self-talk, or living with heightened feelings, bodily sensations, or numbness.

My approach to therapy is grounded in social justice and anti-oppression, and guided by narrative frameworks. I believe our lives are shaped by the stories we and others tell us about who we are. When we decide to come to therapy, it’s often because stories about problems (and about how WE are a problem) are dominating our lives. My role is to help you examine these stories and your relationship to them, and to explore, create, and sometimes change the stories in your life.

I am a Neurodiversity affirming therapist and counsellor specializing in ADHD and Level 1 Autism. As someone who came to understand my own neurodiversity in my 20s, I am familiar with the unique trials and tribulations that arise throughout the lives of neurodivergent people (in addition to the often exceptional capabilities that can be hugely advantageous in many facets of life).

I take an eclectic approach to therapy, informed by Person-Centered Therapy, Parts Integration, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to address challenges relating to procrastination, avoidance, general and social anxiety, depression, screen addictions, traumatic brain injury, and men’s mental health.

I am a therapist providing individual care for youth (12+) and adults out of Ottawa, Ontario, the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation. In my work, I provide a trauma-informed space for people to unpack their stories, so that together we can create individualized, holistic plans of care.

I practice from an anti-racist, anti-oppressive framework and specialize in locating individual struggle within the larger picture of peoples’ lives and society. My aim is to not only support individuals during the time we work together, but to co-create tools of mental wellness that they can engage with for the rest of their lives.

I work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, trauma (past or present), chronic pain, and those just trying to make sense of their lives and experiences.
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist, with additional accreditation in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Our work together will focus on both your immediate concerns as well as making sense of underlying (often unconscious) patterns. By combining psychodynamic and ACT modalities, my goal is to support your growth and expand your experience of a meaningful and fulfilling life.
