“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.” - Shannon L. Alder

** Weekday evenings and Saturdays availability**

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, having problems with relationships, in a difficult transition, or feeling the impact of past trauma on your life? At times, dealing with emotional and relational challenges and other life stressors can feel frustrating and overwhelming. I am Jiaqi and I am here for you! With compassion and empathy, I provide a safe, judgement-free, and supportive environment where you feel heard and experience healing, hope, and empowerment. I will listen to you carefully and work with you to identify these issues clearly. I will develop healthier coping skills to improve your sense of integration and wholeness.

My therapy style is eclectic and I care about tailoring my approach to best fit you. Overall, I believe in using eastern and western modalities to help you manage difficult situations and emotions. I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing. For couples, I also use Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy to regulate emotions and provide tools to mitigate conflicts and achieve greater intimacy. 

I love working with individuals (11+), couples and families of all backgrounds in a variety of areas. Whatever you are seeking to gain from therapy, I will meet you where you are at in that process and we will work together on reaching the goals that you have.

I have a B.Sc. in Psychology from McGill University. Currently, I am completing my M.Ed in Counselling Psychology from the University of Ottawa and practice under the supervision of Pamela Green (M.A., Registered Psychotherapist). 

As the saying goes, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” (Lao Tzu). I am excited that the first step of your journey has led you here! Feel free to email me at or fill out the contact box on the right to book an appointment. I am also happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss how we can work collaboratively.
