I will be working to book your virtual appointments by phone and respond to emails and questions. You can also book appointments on-line All on-line services are fully PIPEDA, PHIPA, and FIPPA compliant.
Are you worried about the health of a loved one, or yourself? Are you feeling alone? Experiencing panic attacks? Are you feeling overwhelmed by all the changes, decisions that need to be made? Are you struggling to adjust to working/living at home all the time? Are you juggling multiple tasks and priorities at this time? Was your relationship with your partner already in a difficult spot before we were socially distancing? Are you concerned about an elderly parent or loved one? Are you facing parenting challenges? Is your physical health compromised? Do you have family in another city, province or abroad you are worried about? Has the disruption of your routine created more challenges for you and your family? Has it been challenging to socially isolate yourself? Are you a healthcare/service worker on the front-lines needing your own support?
I care about your concerns, and am committed to helping you untangle your feelings during this challenging time as we face the limits of our human understanding together, I am looking forward to collaborating with you and offering personal and tailored care to meet your individual needs..

The quality of our relationships is pivotal to our health. Psychotherapy from a systemic perspective holds that people are inseparable from their web of relationships. Interventions from a system perspective, focus on the relational patterns that develop in our relationships, It works to acknowledge, accept, or change them by deepening our emotional awareness, connecting them to our thoughts, feelings, senses, and behaviours to enrich our connection with others.
"Although Psychotherapy can succeed by focusing on either psychology of the individual or the organization of the family, both perspectives, psychology and social context- are useful for a full understandnig of people and their problems. "

Live – The joys of a balanced and healthy life are the enjoyment of relationships, connection to ones purpose, an awareness of oneself, a concern for others in need, energy, focus, clarity and peace of mind. We all face challenges in life, however, that set us off balance, and compromise our health, mentality, physically and spiritually, You may be aware that you are not coping with these stresses in a healthy way by using food or substances to feel better, avoid people, or experience bouts of despair and/or anxiety. I strive to support you on your journey, help you restore strength and resilience in times of difficulty, and rediscover a path to health.
Love - Are you in a committed long-term relationship with someone? In the best of times, relationships can be a source of strength, support, encouragement, intimacy and connection. But they can also be a source of doubt, discord, conflict, resentment that can sometimes heighten feelings of anger, hurt, insecurity, and vulnerability. Couples counselling aims to help couples find new ways of relating, understanding and reconnecting that are fulfilling and growth-oriented.
Work – Whether you are an executive, an entrepreneur, manager or employee, work can be a source of creativity, pleasure, fulfillment and meaning when things are going well, but it can also be a source of stress due to conflict, operational stress, burnout, competing demands, organizational changes and heavy workloads. These can in turn have a negative impact on performance, motivation, health, relationships, and personal career goals. Capital Counselling aims to provide a space to clarify sources of dis-ease in the workplace and help you find solutions to workplace concerns that preserve your ability to cope with the challenges of work.
My office is conveniently located in downtown Ottawa just as the name Capital Counselling suggests! Fully accessible by public transportation, vehicle, bicycle or on foot. This office space is wheelchair accessible. A quiet oasis in the heart of the city.
