Alessia Ottaviani
B.A., Dipl., Registered Psychotherapist Qualifying - RP(Q)

You are struggling to keep it all together. Life and its challenges keep you feeling overwhelmed, stuck and confused, like heavy boulders in your way. Perhaps, something in your life just isn’t working, and you want to know how to improve things. You are smart, resilient and determined to make the changes needed to get the most out of your life. 

I am a firm believer that you hold the answers you are searching for. My expertise in psychotherapy allows me to shine a light on the parts of your life that have been ignored or forgotten. I will guide and support you in gaining clarity and self-awareness to facilitate the changes you are searching for. I, like yourself, am on my own journey. I too have felt alone, misunderstood, and stuck. I did not know how to make opportunities out of the challenges I faced, and this caused pain and confusion. I am continuously learning new ways to embrace and use the bumps and forks in the road to get the most out of life. 

As your therapist, I am compassionate and relatable. My approach is holistic and integrative, as I employ a variety of techniques and therapies. I offer a non-judgmental space where you can feel heard, acknowledged and supported. We will work with your strengths to develop strategies to transform the obstacles you’ve encountered into opportunities for growth and change. Through this process, I will assist you by using practical and useful tools drawn from psychodynamic therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, relational therapy, mindfulness-based therapies, guided imagery, and narrative therapies.

I provide psychotherapy to adolescents (15+) and adults.
