I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT WORKING WITH MY CLIENTS, EITHER THROUGH ONE-ON-ONE THERAPY, THROUGH MY WORK WITH PROFESSIONAL WOMEN AND MOTHERS, OR CORPORATE WELLNESS SEMINARS.
I am a licensed and registered clinical health psychologist. I help individuals and couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships, coping with emotions, struggling with how they feel about themselves and/ or coping with interpersonal and personality-related problems. I also provide services to people who are coping with an acute or chronic illness, including cancer, diabetes, HIV, and chronic pain. I am the Director of Integrated Wellness in Ottawa. I also offer clinical supervision and consultation.
When I am not sitting in my chair with clients, I am presenting to corporations on employee wellness and management and to healthcare providers on key issues related to mental health.
I have a passion for research and writing --
I participated on multiple research projects throughout my training. I enjoy learning in different interest areas and sharing this with the professional community through publications and book chapters.
I also love writing for a larger audience and enjoy contributing to blog posts.
