Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
– Mary Oliver
I am a professional therapist that focuses on integrating mind and body therapies to help remove the barriers to our sense of calm and joy.
In a trusting and non-judgmental environment, the brain’s natural healing is encouraged. My approach is to employ therapies based on current research in neurobiology and psychology to enable clients to move towards their goals. I use a trauma-informed approach that combines Cognitive and Dialectical behavior, Brainspotting, Polyvagal and Mindfulness-based Breathing therapies.
I worked in the non-profit mental health field for 7 years in a variety of areas including addictions and family treatment, medical clinics, and in community health centres. I have been doing private practice for 10 years. I focus on anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, chronic pain, grief, managing life transitions, and relationship dynamics.
I am a registered Masters of Social Work professional. Most benefit companies request/recognize MSW-provided services. I am an approved provider for Veterans Affairs and am able to direct bill to Blue Cross.
Individual Adult Counseling Sessions are $150 for a 60-minute session.
I am currently offering video sessions only. Research tells us e-counseling can be equally beneficial as face to face therapy.
I will be returning to in-person sessions sometime in the future. For this purpose, my office is located near Billings Bridge Plaza in Ottawa.
