Margaret Lorrie Beaton, MA (Counselling Psychology), Master C.Hyp™, Registered Psychotherapist

My goal in supporting others through some of the most challenging times in their lives is to foster a collaborative professional relationship that creates a safe environment for positive wellness, change, and healing. 


I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the Ontario College of Psychotherapists having gained my Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology in 2012. I am also a Master Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy Practitioner, a Break The Worry Trance™ Coach, and an Expressive Arts Practitioner. I find strategies from these platforms provide wonderful tools that accompany my work well. As part of my professional development, I continue to pursue educational opportunities, and receive ongoing clinical supervision. 


I specialize in grief, loss, anxiety, depression, conflict resolution, personal growth, and personal transformation. I use various modalities and an integrative approach to best support each individual and these include: Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Conflict Resolution, and Expressive Arts. These modalities combined with my Counselling Psychology background assist me in providing an environment for safe self-expression, processing emotions, creativity and personal development. The goal is to accommodate the needs of each client, to best support clients of all ages and backgrounds, and to promote healing. 


While a faculty member for Fleming College from 2012 to 2017, I taught within the Graduate Certificate Expressive Arts program. The courses I have taught include: Introduction to Expressive Arts, Professional Issues in Expressive Arts, Expressive Arts in Bereavement & Palliative Care, and Expressive Arts-Creative Connections. The graduate level courses provide training for those working in the field of expressive arts, those looking to gain tools for facilitation, and for those who wish to integrate art-making into their work. I currently train bereavement facilitators, who offer peer support based programming within several organizations. 


I am also a member of OEATA (Ontario Expressive Arts Therapy Association), CCPA (Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association), and OACCPP (Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists).

Kelly Quinn, M.Ed., Registered Psychotherapist

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do 

With your one wild and precious life?" –Mary Oliver, “The Summer Day” 


There are so many things that I love about these lines by the poet Mary Oliver. She reminds us that we have choices about what we want to do with the unique and precious life that each of us has. That word ‘wild’ can encompass beauty and pain, joy and struggle. But even when life is at its most difficult, and even when we feel least in control, we can make meaningful change.


In my practice, I support people in making these changes. I help them to identify and work through the issues that hold them back from healthy functioning. In the safe, supportive space of therapy, we work together to develop and enhance coping strategies for dealing with the challenges and changes that life brings. We construct individualized plans to draw on your own strengths and abilities and to connect with what is most meaningful to you. 

I hold an M.Ed. in Counselling Psychology with training in individuals and couples counseling. I am a member of the CCPA (Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association) and the OAMHP (Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals), and I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I have experience in helping older adolescents and adults in coping with anxiety, depression, ADHD, interpersonal relationships, career transitions, and other life challenges.

Magdalena Godula, PhD, RP

I am a Registered Psychotherapist in the province of Ontario with over 20 years of experience, providing individual psychotherapy to adults in both English and Polish. I practice from a psychoanalytic approach, using a relational/interpersonal, process-level focus. I also incorporate elements from psycholinguistic, narrative, experiential, existential, solution-focused, and cognitive-behavioural theory into my work with clients.

Psychotherapy is a relational process - a process within the therapeutic relationship, which provides the safe, stable, and supportive space, within which clients can experience themselves as they are, and where the therapist and client work together to uncover, explore, and resolve the difficulties with which they come. In doing so, we also work to uncover, explore, and draw on the inner resources each individual has within them, often unrecognized, to create positive change and wholeness.

This may involve making connections between the present difficulties and other aspects of clients’ life experience which have contributed, and in time led to, where they are and who they are today. Like a beautiful but complex puzzle, wholeness and healing is created by recognizing, becoming aware of, changing where necessary, and integrating all of those aspects together – including those we may have lost, buried, thrown away, ignored, or denied, out of fear or out of shame, or out of sheer necessity. My role as a psychotherapist is to facilitate this process of change.

I hold a PhD from the school of Counselling, Psychotherapy and Spirituality at Saint Paul University in Ottawa (2019), where I also completed my MA degree (2002), and a BA in Psychology from the University of Calgary (1999). Prior to joining Glebe Psychotherapy in 2018, I have worked as a psychotherapist/counsellor at different community organizations in both Ontario and Alberta, with a wide range of populations, as well as in private practice. I am also a clinical supervisor, and am involved in teaching and training of university students preparing for practice.

Samantha Burton - M.Ed., Counselling Psychology, Registered Psychotherapist

My interest and passion lie in working with individuals to overcome obstacles that are keeping them from living their most fulfilling life. I believe strongly that a safe therapeutic environment and a good working relationship between therapist and client are the most important factors that lead to real change. I am consistently amazed by the resiliency and resources I see within clients and am always striving to help foster and draw upon these in sessions. 

I have experience working with a number of presenting issues, such as anxiety, depression, trauma/complex trauma, emotion regulation issues, relationship and sex issues, and social issues. I have a particular interest in working with individuals who have experienced trauma or complex trauma and helping them to understand and overcome the difficulties their past experiences have created in their lives. 

I work from an integrative approach, wherein I draw heavily from Psychodynamic Therapy and incorporate elements from Client-Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Somatic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and others. I strive to tailor my approach and treatment to each individual client and their unique needs. 

I hold an M.Ed. in Counselling Psychology with training in individual and group counseling from the University of Ottawa and am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.

Sarah Gysin, MA (Creative Arts Therapy), Registered Psychotherapist

Creating a safe and supportive therapeutic space that nurtures personal exploration and self-expression is important to me. I offer a gentle, non-judgmental, and relaxed approach to therapy that is focused on your individual needs, helping you to find ways that support you both inside and outside of our therapy sessions. Together, we will work to emphasize the wisdom and resilience that is already within you and discover ways of using these personal strengths to help you reach your goals.


My art therapy training informs my psychotherapy practice by providing me with tools to help you find creative ways of approaching personal exploration, self-compassion, and acceptance. I am also passionate about the role that laughter and play have on building warm, meaningful, and reparative connections, no matter what your age or walk of life may be.


I have experience working with children, youth, and adults facing issues with stress and anxiety, depression, interpersonal conflicts, emotional regulation, self-esteem, self-harm, trauma, mood disorders, and grief and loss. I work from an attachment-focused, psychodynamic perspective that is client-centered, strength-based, and collaborative. I also incorporate elements of humanistic, narrative, emotionally-focused, and solution-focused therapies in my practice. My work and values are trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and 2SLGBTQIA+ allied.


I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, and a professional Art Therapist with the Canadian Art Therapy Association. I hold an MA in Creative Arts Therapies, Art Therapy specialization from Concordia University, in Montreal, QC.

Thubiha Vairamuthu, MA, Registered Psychotherapist

My role is to work alongside you on  your personal journey toward the growth you seek to achieve.  Our sessions are your time. They will be dedicated to addressing what you deem important and relevant, and will be heard within the safe and confidential environment of psychotherapy practice. I offer non-judgement and acceptance. I value your autonomy and freedom. I provide the space for you to recognize your truth, and unburden your suffering, as you deserve to be heard and understood. 


I work from a multi-modality approach and tailor evidence-based techniques to individual client needs.


These include a main focus from Person Centered Therapy, along with Narrative, Cognitive Behavioural, Existential, Solution-Focused, Logotherapy, and Mindfulness approaches. I am committed to transparency with respect to the methods and interventions that we will agree to use in our work together.


I am currently a registered member  with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I am also a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I hold a Master's degree in Counselling and Spirituality  from Saint Paul University (2020). I obtained my Bachelor's degree of Honour's with Specialization  in Psychology and a minor in Philosophy from the University of Ottawa. I also have certification with the Suicide Prevention Training Program (ASIST) and completed additional crisis and distress training.


As part of my training, education, and work experience, I have done research  in areas of grief, bereavement, and spirituality. I have experience working in a hospital setting with a diverse range of adult clients. I have also worked with refugees and minorities. I have experience in working with clients to address symptoms  of Major Depression Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, suicidal ideation, and trauma. I have also worked with clients with PTSD, ADHD, BPD, OCD, and phobias, among others. 


My goal as a psychotherapist  is to relieve the shared, human suffering you are experiencing so that you can truly live. 


"If there is a meaning in life at all, then there must be a meaning in suffering. Suffering is an eradicable part of life, even as fate and death. Without suffering and death, human life cannot be complete.” - Victor Frankl

Faith Mottahedi, MA, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Whether you are experiencing issues of anxiety, grief, trauma, relationship difficulties, or life transitions I’m here to meet you where you are at and walk alongside you on your journey. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe, open and non-judgmental space where we can collaboratively explore some of the difficulties you may currently be experiencing.

My clinical work draws inspiration from several different modalities which I tailor to each specific client. Primarily, I use a person-centred approach to therapy, and incorporate aspects of psychodynamic theory, childhood attachment, poly-vagal somatic theory, and dialectical behavioral therapy to help my clients heal. With youth in particular, I enjoy using creative arts and hip hop/rap music therapy in my practice.

Furthermore, I work from a trauma-informed, strengths based and anti-oppressive framework. As a child of refugee parents, I understand firsthand the struggles that new immigrants and people of color face when they come to Canada, and therefore I have a passion with working with such populations. I have experience working with a diverse clientele including children, adults, couples and families. I have also had the privilege of working with youth and young adults in community empowerment programs across Ottawa.

I have a BSc in Health Sciences and a MA in Psychotherapy, Counselling and Spirituality specializing in Couples and Family Counselling from Saint Paul University. I am also currently completing my Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Social Research where my project is looking at youth homelessness prevention, interventions and increasing access to justice to other vulnerable populations.

Please contact me if you have any questions for a complementary 15-minute consultation.

Julena Breel - MEd, CCC, RP (Qualifying)

I believe I have been pointing towards therapeutic work throughout my life. Witnessing and supporting others through difficult experiences and transitions, particularly when pain, anguish, and sorrow are present, is familiar and meaningful work to me. These seasons of our lives can often feel isolating and disorienting and my work attempts to soften those edges by creating space safe enough to experience and make sense of overwhelming emotions in manageable ways. Therapy is deeply personal work. Being entrusted to know the nuances and complexities that make someone who they are is a gift I hold with tremendous care and respect. Our work together will be intentional and oriented towards the specific concerns in your present life. While it will gently push up against your working edges and involve stretching emotionally this will happen in relationship with one another and we will only move at the speed of trust. Together we will gain a rich understanding of your internal world and our therapeutic work will reflect and centre in the areas you wish to see changes in.

I am a registered member (qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario as well as hold membership with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I have obtained my MEd (Counselling) from the University of Northern British Columbia and have training in Holistic Expressive Therapies as well as Indigenous Focusing-Oriented Therapy. I am particularly drawn towards work that includes grief, loss, family systems, childhood, life transitions, belonging, boundaries, shame, (in)fertility, pregnancy, parenthood, and trauma.


I am a white settler of Dutch and Irish descent and I exist in spaces with cis-hetero, thin, able-bodied, and neuro-typical privileges. I work from a feminist perspective and my therapeutic approach blends together narrative, attachment, polyvagal, DBT, and expressive theories. It is informed by my academic knowledge, personal and professional lived experiences, and continued learnings. I strive to consistently act in ways that are aligned with my own values around trauma-informed, justice-oriented, fat-positive, sex/gender/culture-affirming practices while acknowledging because of my own privileges and complicities this is a commitment to lifelong (un)learning. Creating affirming therapeutic experiences that are non-judgemental and non-pathologizing is central to all of my work; therapy that is collaborative and grounded in consent, choice, and autonomy. All of you is welcome here.
