Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

278 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, Ontario K2P 1V4 | 1-613-238-2222

As a psychotherapist I have long experienced that it is precisely through the process of verbalizing thoughts that my clients are able to gain a clear sense of their reality--words clarify the vagueness of ideas. And once a reality is expressed, then a client can move toward acceptance of that reality and toward understanding of how to shape that reality in a way that best meets their needs and aspirations.

Ottawa South, Alta Vista, Ottawa, Ontario K1H 5T7 | 613-733-1422

For over 25 years I have been working with individuals and couples to help them with their particular issues and problems so that they may achieve emotional health as well as relationship and career goals. Each client has a unique situation and set of issues, be it anxiety, stress, depression, substance abuse, grief, personal growth, relationship issues, aging, illness, etc ; each problem has a unique set of tools and strategies to select for its solution. Together we will meet and identify the problem(s); I will propose a treatment plan and together we will discuss the plan as well as determine whether the match between therapist and client is a solid one in order to move forward.

Psychotherapy is primarily a talk-based therapy and is intended to help you improve and maintain positive mental health and well-being. I work with individuals, couples and families in individual and group settings. Psychotherapy occurs when the Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and client enter into a psychotherapeutic relationship where both work together to bring about positive change in the client’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning. Individuals usually seek psychotherapy when they have thoughts, feelings, moods and behaviours that are adversely affecting their day-to-day lives, relationships and the ability to enjoy life.

My approach to psychotherapy integrates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness practices, and Somatic Experiencing to develop a deep connection between mind and body. I emphasize the importance of tuning into how the body experiences emotions and life events, recognizing that bodily sensations are key indicators of our emotional states. By addressing and accepting these emotions, people can open new pathways for handling life’s challenges. This method encourages not just coping, but thriving through a holistic understanding and acceptance of one’s feelings, leading to innovative solutions and healthier approaches to life's difficulties.

Online Therapy, Ottawa, Ontario K2G 1E3 | 905-758-5444

In life, we go through experiences that are very hard to talk about. We may not fully understand what happened to us or how to deal with it, or even express it. Therapy is a place to sort it out. It’s a space to increase understanding and grow skills and strength. It’s also an opportunity to make a connection to another human being and, through it, begin healing from the wounds that life has given us. I would like to be here for you on this inner journey and support you as you recover. I have dedicated my life to my own journey and helping others as well over the past 16 years. I encourage you to reach out and unburden yourself by sharing your story with someone who understands.

As a therapist, I've witnessed the transformative power of psychotherapy firsthand. Beyond offering a safe and confidential space, therapy provides individuals with invaluable tools for self-discovery and personal growth. Through introspection and dialogue, clients gain insight into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, empowering them to navigate life's challenges with greater clarity and resilience. Psychotherapy fosters a deeper understanding of oneself and others, leading to healthier relationships and improved communication skills. The journey of psychotherapy is empowerment, self-compassion, and lasting change, guiding clients toward a more fulfilling and authentic life.

Registered Psychotherapist

London, Ontario N0L 1G0 |

When we engage in therapy together I learn about who you are, how you act, and identify any patterns of behaviour or thought that emerge through this learning. The success of your therapy depends on your willingness to participate and on the relationship that we build together. My approach is gentle, kind, curious and open. Together we define the goals you have for yourself and explore what keeps you from reaching them.

My approach to psychotherapy is founded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but also blends other therapies. I will teach you the basics of the type of therapy that is most relevant to your problem. We will then work to apply the therapy to your specific issue. We will practice the skills that are taught and you will be given work to do at home. You will then report back about how the strategies are being implemented at home to allow us to tweak the skills to have them work best for you! Ultimately, you will be much better at managing your own issues independently!

Ottawa, Ontario K2P 1J6 | 6132050822

Licensed through the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, I offer psychotherapy to youth 14+ and adults. My approach is always centered on working with clients in a way that is empowering and based on leveraging the inner wisdom in each person. I have many strategies and options to offer, but clients are the experts in what will and won't work for them. When individuals complete therapy, my goal is for them to say "I worked hard and achieved the results I wanted to achieve - I can do this!" rather than "Tory helped me how to feel better".

As opposed to many of the behaviourally-based (simple fix) treatments available today, psychotherapy involves going deeper. This might include looking at coping skills or patterns you developed as a child which, though they served you well then, may be getting in the way of your life now. Psychotherapy is less about learning tools, and more about developing insights about oneself and one's loved ones. While many therapies today focus on changing behaviour in the here and now, psychotherapy often involves looking at what may underlie emotional or relational patterns, such as having difficulty saying no, or struggling to trust others. It involves being more honest and authentic with oneself.

Psychotherapy's major objectives are to reduce symptoms, maintain or enhance day-to-day functioning, and improve quality of life. Psychotherapy helps with managing stressful life events, the effects of trauma, medical disease, or bereavement (such as the death of a loved one), and some mental health issues like anxiety or depression. Positive physiological and neurological changes have been associated with psychotherapy, which has been shown to enhance emotional and psychological health. Psychotherapy comes in a variety of forms, and certain forms may be more effective in particular therapeutic contexts. Psychotherapy may be used in combination with medication or other therapies.

Psychotherapy is ideally a safe place for clients to begin unpacking their issues to begin looking forward towards their best hopes. While it can certainly be challenging and intimidating, my goal is to help clients embrace the discomfort in exploring these tough issues to ideally imagine a better future to ultimately pursue. While my practice can center around resolution of goals, I also believe some people just need a trained clinician to talk to in a less goal-oriented formal matter.
