Alex's Favourite Therapy Quote:

“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know." - Pema Chödrön

Welcome! Thank you for considering me as a potential ally on your path to mental health and wellness. In this collaborative space, your voice matters, and your perspective shapes the direction of our work together. I strive to create an environment where all individuals, regardless of background or identity, feel valued, respected, and heard. Additionally, I'm not hesitant to gently challenge you, offering support as you navigate through discomfort and growth. Let's connect and explore if our therapeutic connection feels like a good fit for your journey ahead.

Practice Areas

Within my practice, I extend a compassionate hand to navigate the complexities of anxiety, burnout, and depression, amongst other issues, providing a safe harbor amidst life's storms. Whether you're grappling with work or school stress, struggling with interpersonal issues, or seeking to enhance your interpersonal skills, I offer a supportive environment tailored to your needs. Known for fostering a calm and comfortable atmosphere, I invite you to explore your personal goals and aspirations, empowering you to cultivate resilience and embrace positive change. Together, we'll embark on a collaborative journey of self-discovery and growth, nurturing your well-being and fostering lasting transformation. I am currently working with Individual Adults aged 18 and up.

Education & Experience

I completed my B.A. Honours in Psychology at UOttawa, and will be receiving my Masters Degree in Counselling, Spirituality, and Psychotherapy at Saint Paul University this Spring. I have seen a variety of clients for over a year through my program and am on the public registry as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying).

While I am currently looking for a supervisor, I will be looking at accepting clients in the second half of April 2024. Feel free to check my booking page to see if I am available sooner.

Therapeutic Approach

In my therapeutic approach, I integrate a variety of evidence-based modalities such as Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), Self-in Relationship Psychotherapy (SIRP), attachment-based interventions, Psychodynamic principles, trauma-informed techniques, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Together, we explore your inner world, relational patterns, and past experiences, fostering understanding and change. Creating a safe, supportive environment, I aim to empower you to navigate life's challenges with resilience, insight, and compassion, cultivating authenticity and a more fulfilling way of being.

About Alex

"Variety is the spice of life" - a favourite quote of mine as outside of psychotherapy I’m a jack of all trades, master of none. I’m an avid patterned-socks enthusiast who enjoys learning new things through reading, brain puzzles, and playing and listening to music. When I am not working, you will find me enjoying time with friends and family, being outdoors, playing volleyball, or cuddling my pets. I seek to embrace every adventure that comes my way, especially through travel.
