Are you or your teen/child experiencing difficulties with worries, stress, sadness, irritability, moodiness, angry or feeling overwhelmed? Are you or your teen/child having difficulties with interpersonal relationships, school or work, and not achieving goals? Are you a parent looking for ways to support your teen/child with behavioural, developmental, or social difficulties? I am here to provide a safe, respectful, nonjudgmental, and accepting space for you or your teen/child to explore feelings and develop concrete steps towards healing and restoration. I work in a collaborative way with my clients in a welcoming space and accept clients from Ottawa and surrounding areas.
Some of the things I am able to help you or your teen/child with include anxiety, ADHD, anger and aggression, autism spectrum disorders, bipolar disorder, bullying, communication, depression, emotional regulation, interpersonal relationships, self-harm behaviours, suicidal feelings, substance abuse, work or school stressors, social skills, problem solving, stress management, relaxation techniques, caregiver and parenting supports, and navigating school and social services systems.
I have an MSW from Carleton University and over 20 years experience working in mental health with people of all ages. I use collaborative approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, emotional regulation, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.
