Specialist in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Eating Disorders & Body Image, Relationships, Mindful Self Compassion, and work with the LGBTQ2s+ community.

My work with clients involves helping them to discover their strengths and reconnect with who they want to be so that they can re-engage with their life. I understand how challenging it can be to feel disconnected from the person we want to be. Together, we will work through uncomfortable thoughts and emotions, and overcome unhelpful behaviours by learning new ways to relate to our suffering and care for ourselves.

I work with clients aged 13 to 65 years with anxiety, depression, disordered eating, interpersonal difficulties and LGBTQ2S+ issues.

Senior Clinician and Member of Clinical Council, Ottawa River Integrative Mental Health

I believe in providing a warm, person-centred approach to those in need, meeting individuals where they are, treating them as equals with dignity and compassion. With over 10 years’ experience in providing counseling and therapy to individuals on a wide array of journeys I am aware of the stigma around mental health and substance use issues and understand that seeking help is sign of hope and courage. As such, I do not look on those with these issues as in any way defective, lacking willpower or less than anyone else. As someone with lived experience myself – with over 30 years of continuous sobriety and recovery who am I to judge anyone?

Professional Focus I work with a wide array of individuals who have or are concerned about depression, anxiety, PTSD, psychosis and other mental disorders. I also specialize in supporting those with or who have questions or issues with their use of substances such as alcohol, cannabis, stimulants, opioids and others. I have a particular interest in working with those who may have both mental health and substance use issues side-by-side. Such individuals often encounter barriers to treatment as the mental health and substance use systems of care often exist in siloes. I embrace the importance of addressing these issues concurrently. I also work with family members and loved ones of those with mental health and substance issues to build motivation for treatment and to engage the family in the recovery journey.

Senior Clinician & Director of Clinical Operations at Ottawa River Integrative Mental Health.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, which regulates the practice of psychotherapy across the province. I am also a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and received my M.Ed. in Educational Counselling from the University of Ottawa. I also hold a graduate diploma in Couple Counselling and Spirituality from Saint Paul University in Ottawa. Under Dr. Sogge’s supervision as a registered clinical psychologist, I provide individual, couple, and group therapy services to the Ottawa community. Much of my practice involves supporting individuals with anxiety, depression, ADHD, and relationship issues. I have experience counselling university students as well as providing coaching to adults with ADHD, and therefore offer a unique perspective when working with these populations.

A great deal of our lives is spent trying to eliminate the issues with which we are struggling. This can be exhausting and often directs us away from the life that we want to live. My intention as a therapist is to empower my clients find more effective and flexible ways of relating to their struggles so that they can reconnect with the kind of life they find most meaningful.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have received training from ACT creator Stephen Hayes, as well as ACT psychologists and researchers Drs. Jason Luoma, Robyn Walser, and John Forsyth, in order to specialize in this approach. I integrate other evidence-based approaches in my practice, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy, in order to meet the needs of my clients. I believe in empowering the individuals with whom I work to find solutions based on their internal resources. I use mindfulness to shift rigid patterns of thoughts, behaviours, and emotions and to help facilitate the desired changes in one’s experience.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or even if you are simply trying to decide if therapy is the next step for you.
