Alex's Favourite Therapy Quote:

“What’s in the way is the way.” – Mary O’Malley

Taking a step towards getting help can be a vulnerable process. My goal is to create an environment where you feel comfortable expressing yourself authentically while also feeling heard and understood. I prioritize meeting you where you are, ensuring the experience feels accessible from the beginning. Together, we will explore the challenges life has placed on your path, the goals you would like to achieve through therapy, and determine the best ways for you to move towards a more fulfilling life.

Practice Areas

I specialize in working with adult individuals (18 and up) facing a diverse range of life and mental health challenges. My primary focus areas include anxiety, depression, life transitions as well as grief and loss. Additionally, I assist clients struggling with body image concerns, self-esteem difficulties, sleep concerns, interpersonal relationship difficulties and stress-related issues. With a background in working with students, I can also offer support for academic struggles and procrastination.

My approach centers on fostering skill-building and resilience, empowering clients to develop effective strategies to navigate their challenges. I am committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment where every client, regardless of identity or background, feels welcomed and understood. I prioritize treating clients as equals, as I recognize that collaboration is essential to the therapeutic process.

Education & Experience

I received my B. Sc. in Psychology from McGill University, and received my M. Ed. in Counselling Psychology from the University of Ottawa. I am currently registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am also a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). My experience includes working with clients of all walks of life, within the community as well as in higher education settings.

Therapeutic Approach

Recognizing the uniqueness of every individual, I am dedicated to tailoring my services to best suit your needs and personality. Central to my practice is the emphasis on your strengths, as I believe they are fundamental to our work together. My approach primarily stems from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and I complement it with techniques from various theories, including Compassion Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy, among others.

About Alex

Outside of the office, my favourite way to spend my time is with my friends and family. I also enjoy exploring different recipes and cuisines in the kitchen, watching motorsports, discovering new music, hiking, and playing badminton. Supporting my community is also important to me, and I do this by volunteering with various community organizations such as Big Brothers and Sisters.
