We are a group of highly trained psychotherapists in Ottawa, who not only work in private practice, but also hold positions at Carleton University and at Algonquin College working with students with disabilities. As a result, we are experts in the treatment of mental health (anxiety, depression) and neurodevelopmental  (ASD, ADHD, Learning Disabilities) disorders, and life challenges such as burnout, university/college related stress, life dissatisfaction, parenting stress, or chronic pain or menopausal symptoms management. Our therapeutic success is the result of blending evidence based psychotherapeutic interventions  (Cognitive BehaviouralAcceptance and Commitment Therapy) with coaching strategies and mindfulness training into treatment plans to meet the individual needs of our clients.
