First Responders - When should you consider working with Sarah?

Daily Challenges: Feeling overwhelmed or finding it hard to do what you love? I can support you to develop strategies to overcome obstacles and rediscover your passions.

Sleep Issues: Trouble sleeping due to night shifts or other reasons? We can develop a plan to help you get better rest.

Stress and Pain: Dealing with stress or chronic pain? Together, we can help you manage these issues so they don't take over your life.

Home and Work: Bringing work stress home or facing difficulties in your personal life? We can support you to improve your relationships and handle challenges more smoothly.

Work-related Challenges: Whether you're on medical leave or still working, I can support you through tough times and help you navigate your way forward. This can include joining you in the workplace or community for exposure therapy.

Let's set up a time to talk so we can make sure that working together is the right fit. After that, I'll reach out to Blue Cross or WSIB to seek approval for our treatment.

I offer assessments and 1:1 therapy. Home visits can be done in the Ottawa area. Online appointments are available throughout Ontario.

I also offer nature-based therapy. That can include walk and talk appointments, forest bathing or a group nature-therapy program.

Hi, I’m Sarah

I live and work in Ottawa, Ontario as an occupational therapist and mindfulness teacher.

I have been working as an occupational therapist for more than 20 years and have been working with veterans and first responders since 2012, using a trauma-informed approach.

Both in my personal and professional life, I use nature and mindfulness meditation to bring calm and joy to each day! I often incorporate a walk into treatment sessions or lead a meditation, if that suits you.

Working with individual clients, I strive to empower people to learn more about their own health and live lives that fit with their own personal values.

I'm looking forward to working with you!
