About Us

Our Mission 

The Ottawa Psychotherapy Center is a collective of like-minded, person-centered and non-judgmental clinicians all working in private practice. While all members at the Ottawa Psychotherapy Center have their own individual private practice, we have created a community that feels like home; not just for us members, but for our clients too. 

Our mission is to provide a safe, comfortable and judgment-free space that promotes collective and individual healing, growth and change. 

Whether you are visiting our physical home or you are engaging virtually with an Ottawa Psychotherapy Center clinician, we hope that you feel understood, comfortable and safe. We are hoping to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere in which you can feel supported to show up authentically and accepted for who you are.


Most clinicians at the Ottawa Psychotherapy Center work from a humanistic, compassionate, client-centered, relational and attachment-based, psychodynamic approach. We focus on co-creating strong therapeutic alliances to support your healing, growing and thriving. We are humans helping humans. 

Our commitment to promoting diversity and inclusivity is at the forefront of our community. We are constantly striving to incorporate anti-oppressive, inclusive and diverse perspectives into our practices as individuals and collectively.

Co-Founders of the Ottawa Psychotherapy Center


Reesa Packard, Ph.D., RP, & Rebeca Fernandez, M.A., RP, co-founded the Ottawa Psychotherapy Center (OPC) with the dream of creating a safe space where clients & clinicians can thrive! As trailblazing, queer women-identified leaders, they take immense pride in having establishing an anti-oppressive, anti-capitalist organization to support those in need.

Driven by their commitment to transparency, equality, and community, Rebeca & Reesa created OPC to do their part to help make therapy affordable for clients, while also helping to ensure that clinicians receive just compensation. OPC believes in mutual support, fostering healing & growing for all.

Beyond their professional roles, Rebeca and Reesa share a genuine friendship. When they’re not immersed in their clinical and co-founder duties, you’ll find them enjoying nature or savouring a delightful cup of coffee.


We offer free 20 minute consultations to new clients.
