Clinical Philosophy
All therapy is a process of growth, be it individual, couple or family growth; as all things are in a process of change. The therapeutic process then is an attempt to assist that process towards a positive change; which may mean a healthy change, or for couples or families that they change together towards a common end.

OttawaTherapy.org seeks to assist in providing understanding, insight, and acceptance of the change process, and how it impacts on use; via Attachment-Based Psychotherapies and Approaches.
