I fell in love with my first introduction to psychology class in CEGEP. The more I learned about human behaviour and emotions, the more it helped me better understand myself and the world around me. This never-ending curiosity brought me to pursue a master’s degree in counseling at the university of Ottawa. With this training and my desire to help and connect with others, I want to support and work with anyone who is ready to work on themselves and create long-lasting life changes.
I provide psychotherapy from a non-judgemental and compassionate standpoint, creating a safe space for everyone to fully express their emotions. I hope to collaborate with you to help overcome any difficulty or presenting issue, whether it’s anxiety, depression, grief, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, or anything else. Through this collaboration, hopefully we can achieve better insight on the presenting problem, learn healthy coping strategies, develop healthy communication and work on the regulation of emotions.
My approach to counseling and psychotherapy is mainly person-centered, understanding that you are the expert of your own life. I am eclectic, which means that I will be choosing a different therapy depending on your personal needs and wants. These skills include cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, schema therapy, and emotion-focused therapy (EFT).
Please feel free to contact me by email or telephone if you have any questions or if you are ready to start the therapy process with me. I can provide services in French and in English.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), providing services under the supervision of Yoshie Martinez, R.P.
