Associate Therapist

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)


In-Person (Ottawa) and Online


Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. asserts in his acclaimed book “The Body Keeps the Score” that “Neuroscience research shows that the only way we can change the way we feel is by becoming aware of our inner experience and learning to befriend what is going inside ourselves.” This perspective resonates deeply with my approach to psychotherapy.


In sessions, we will be holding the curiosity about your inner world and all levels of experiences, including emotional, cognitive, somatic, and relational. We will be exploring together what you deeply want for yourself – the Heart’s Desire - and what is in the way of that. I work with clients facing a wide range of challenges, including complex and childhood trauma, depression, anxiety, self-image and self-esteem, relational difficulties, attachment issues, substance misuse, personality patterns (borderline and narcissism), and more.


I use the NeuroAffective Relational Model® (NARM™) as the primary framework, an experiential approach integrating Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Somatic Psychology, Cognitive Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy. This approach creates a safe space that supports us in delving into the core of your experiences and uncover what may be holding you back from connecting with yourself and others.


Although we can’t fix what has happened in the past, my role is to support you in restoring your innate capacity for heal and connection. Together, we will explore and address any obstacles that may be hindering your growth and create the right condition where you can heal from difficult experiences and emerge stronger.
