Clients engaging in therapy with me can expect to feel valued. I listen to my clients’ successes and challenges and help clients capitalize on their strengths. I also treasure my clients’ background and culture. In the first session, I will listen to your stories and use current research and assessment tools to help with diagnosis. Collaboratively, we will set treatment goals and a treatment plan. Whether you are coming to treat mood, stress, or personality, or to learn how to deal with life’s difficult transitions, I will tailor the treatment plan to match your personality and goals. When it comes to therapy, I have an integrative approach. Based on the unique personality of my client and his or her goals for therapy, I draw from several empirically supported treatments to suit the client’s needs best. If you are stymied by faulty thinking, we’ll identify those thoughts and understand what steered you off course. I’ll also help you create a plan of action for better well-being. Feeling stuck with your goals? I can help you learn how to accept your experiences and circumstances, especially circumstances that cannot be changed. Questioning your life choices and purpose? Together we’ll explore your existential questions and their emotional expression. In therapy, I help increase the well-being of all my clients and help them achieve what matters most in their lives. I have a doctoral degree in psychology and have provided individual therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, and psychological assessment in hospital and private practice settings. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) Mindfulness-based Meditation, and Humanistic/Existential Therapy. I have provided services at diverse institutions including the Queensway Carleton Hospital, Jewish General Hospital, Ottawa West Professional Services, the Centre for Interpersonal Relationships, and with Dr. David Crowe in private practice. I am a member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario, the Ontario Psychological Association, the Ottawa Academy of Psychologists, and the American Psychological Association.
