The main focus of my practice is to support individuals and coupless to identify and understand their challenges, and to develop functional skills to deal with them effectively.My main theoretical approach is based on Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT): a shorter, solution-oriented therapy based on helping the client develop functional and effective coping skills by understanding the thoughts and feelings that influence their behaviors. A am also certified in Brief and Narrative Training. Narrative therapy seeks to be a respectful, non-blaming approach to counselling and community work, which centers people as the experts in their own lives.

Outside of my work I enjoy all forms of fitness and believe that physical activity is one of the building blocks supporting good mental health.
Sarah Sweeney RP.
Therapy is an opportunity to explore and let go of the things that no longer serve you. My area of specialization is substance use and concurrent disorders. I have worked as a counselor since 2003 which includes experience as an Addictions Counselor at the Royal Ottawa Mental
Health Centre and most recently as a Program Director in a private addiction treatment facility. I have had the honour of seeing the strength and transformation of numerous individuals.
I believe that recovery isn’t just a possibility, it is a reality. I also work with individuals with anxiety,depression, relationship issues, stress, burnout and other life transitions. I believe in supporting clients generate compassion for themselves. When we heal our relationship with
ourselves that paves the way to transforming our lives. In close collaboration with my clients, I tailor my approach based on my clients needs meeting my clients where they are at. The modalities I use are a mixture of Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation techniques, and CBT.
When I am not working I am spending time with my daughters, playing volleyball, fishing, camping and renovating.
