Counselling and Therapy Services
"Nothing will work unless you do." - Maya Angelou
Our Work Together
I offer a safe judgment-free space where you can speak honestly and freely. Your concerns will always be handled with empathy, compassion, and respect. After you've defined your therapy goals, we'll focus on the strengths that will help get you there and the blocks that may be in the way. My work with you is guided by the following beliefs:
You know yourself best
Your counselling needs are unique, so I combine different therapeutic styles that will help support your growth and healing. I will work with you to integrate any spiritual, religious and/or cultural beliefs that hold meaning for you. Together, we will work to define your path toward resilience and self-compassion.

Education and Experience
I am a Registered Psychotherapist in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, with an MA in Counselling and Spirituality from Saint Paul University and a BA Hons in Psychology from Carleton University. I have taken additional training and coursework in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), compassion fatigue, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Tree of Life Narrative.
I also have 30 years' experience as a Psychometrist conducting neuropsychological and psychoeducational assessments - with children, teens, and adults - in hospitals and private practice settings in the Ottawa region.
I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation for you to ask questions and determine if I'm the best fit for you. The consultation is not a therapy session, so we won't dive into specific details about your concerns. The current fee for a 50 minute therapy session is $150 plus HST, payable by e-transfer or credit card. Credit card payments are accepted through Stripe.
Psychotherapy services are not covered by provincial health care plans, but they may be covered in part by your insurance provider. Please confirm your insurance coverage before your first session.
Please note that I'm not able to offer a reduced fee for service at the present time. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please visit Open Path Psychotherapy Collective for low-fee therapy options in your city or province.
