I am a bilingual Clinical Social Worker with a practice in individual psychotherapy for adults and seniors. I completed my Bachelors degree in Nursing Sciences at Dalhousie University and a Masters degree in Social Work at The University of Ottawa. I have worked extensively with individuals and families in a health care setting or home environment for the last 18 years. I would be happy to accommodate home visiting on a short-term basis in certain situations.

THERAPEUTIC APPROACH

Offering a calm, compassionate presence my style of counselling is with a focus on the dignity and uniqueness of each individual. In order to respond in the most meaningful way to a person’s whole experience, I prefer to draw upon different therapeutic orientations which include psychodynamic psychotherapy, strength-based perspectives, experiential approaches, family systems approach, attachment theory, dignity therapy, and companioning approach.

 

My commitment also is to partner with clients to bring attention to patterns of relating to themselves and others that may no longer work in present day life. I aim to offer a warm, safe, and respectful space to companion clients in this important healing work. I believe that a good therapist match is essential, and that the timing for change is paramount. Please contact me for an appointment time or should you wish to discuss your specific needs.

 

My practice is supervised by a clinical psychologist, therefore all or a portion of the fee for sessions may be covered by some extended health insurance plans.
