Finding the right therapist can be difficult
Congratulations on starting the process
I am a trauma informed therapist. I work from an Eclectic Therapeutic Approach. I draw on multiple approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural, Polyvagal, Mindfulness, Attachment Based and Exposure and Response Prevention to best serve my clients’ individualized needs.
I am experienced in providing individual therapy services to adults over 17 years of age in areas such as: Addiction, Anxiety, Family Dynamics/Family of Origin Issues, Relationship Issues, Life Transitions, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Stress and more…
What To Expect.
Expect to feel comfortable and heard. My clients set the pace for their therapy, and I love to regularly check in with my clients to ensure they’re getting what they want/need from our work together.
How It works.
Your first appointment will be an intake appointment where you will complete a questionnaire, and will discuss the goals you hope to achieve with therapy. From there we can discuss a treatment plan that is customized to your individual needs.
Registered Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor
I have been practicing as a Registered Psychotherapist for almost 15 years after completing my Master’s in Educational Counselling in 2005. I have completed several internships throughout my professional experience, and continue to regularly attend additional trainings outside of my formal education. I am currently offering individual counseling services through phone calls, secure video sessions and in person at my Manotick office. I also offer clinical supervision for other psychotherapists and students. For more information about me visit my about page here.
My clients would describe me as a down to earth, easy going individual with a good sense of humour. I know it can be scary or difficult to ask for help and to open up our world to another individual. Knowing this I take special care to provide a relaxed, supportive and non judgemental space for you. I truly love the work I do with the people that come into my office. It is an honour to watch people grow, heal and repair; while creating new, more adaptive ways of living.
"We Repeat what we Don't Repair"
