Approach


I am a professional with many years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. My approach is holistic and client-centered.

In therapy, I address the person, their daily challenges, and their environment. My goal is to assist clients in laying a foundation for healthy, long-term lifestyle changes. I build on the strengths of the person, and believe on the individual’s capacity to change.


“I am under the supervision of Dr. Martin Rovers (marriagetherapistsottawa.ca)- Ontario Registered Psychologist, for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical competence and for psychological services to my clients. The receipt you will receive will be in the name of Dr. Martin Rovers and the counselling services will be provided by me. I consult with my supervisor regarding my clients on monthly basis.”
