Rodgers Counselling

Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, anger, grief, anxiety, depression, or major life changes? There comes a time when we all need help to cope with life's challenges. I’m a Registered Psychotherapist in the Ottawa and Russell region and am here to help you during this difficult period.

My personal take on counselling is that if you're wanting to change something, you must first understand what you're changing. In therapy we work to understand where issues or concerns originate and what influences them. This helps inform the approaches and strategies we use in therapy. I offer services to those who deal with anxiety, depression, grief, anger, and trauma.

I integrate different approaches to help people manage these issues, primarily Cognative Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with some Psychodynamic and Person-Centred Therapy.

Family of Origin and Family Systems are also used as aids to help understand possible influences to the issues discussed.

I also use Brainspotting, which stimulates the brain as a means to help heal itself from issues such as trauma, anxiety, and negative emotions.
