COVID-19 Update: I plan to offer virtual teletherapy sessions until at least September and until I receive directives from both public health agencies and my regulatory college that in-person sessions can resume.
My passion is providing psychotherapy services that make meaningful improvements in the lives of children and and families. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and child/family friendly space to explore challenges and improve thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships, including:
- Social skills and peer relationships
- Family relationships
- Anger, aggression and outbursts
- Low self-esteem
- Attachment, adoption and foster care
We can work toward your goals through various evidence-based play therapy, talk therapy, or family therapy approaches; it would be tailored to your needs, preferences, and availability for in-person or virtual sessions.
Your relationship with your therapist is one of the most important factors determining the success of therapy. It’s essential to find the fight fit for you.
I take a child/family friendly approach that’s warm, approachable, and genuinely invested in the well-being of my clients. My strength is my ability to engage clients and to develop a treatment approach that’s collaborative and tailors intervention to the needs and preferences of each client.
At my office in Barrhaven, I support families from South-Western Ottawa in the areas of Barrhaven, Nepean, Kanata, Richmond, North Gower, Kemptville, Manotick and Greely. I also offer virtual sessions to clients who cannot see me at the office.
I offer a free and confidential 30-minute intake by phone or video session to review your concerns and provide an overview on how psychotherapy might help. There is absolutely no obligation to continue with services, but it’s a great opportunity to get to know each other and ensure we are a good fit to work together before a first session!
