About Krista


I'm a Clinical Social Worker in private practice as Helman Counselling & Family Services, and a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I'm also the Co-Director of the West Ottawa Wellness clinic. 

My clinical experience includes the role of a Social Worker at The Ottawa Hospital, working in long-term care facilities and private practice, as well as participating in programs which improve the health of vulnerable children.

I currently see clients of all ages in my private practice and specialize in areas such as trauma, anxiety, eating disorders, relationships, and behaviour issues. This includes working with first responders, VAC and CAF members, individual adults, children, and couples.

Together we will explore past experiences, and potential connections to your symptoms such as burnout, anxiety, depression, stress, hyperactivity, or relationship breakdown. From small scale circumstances, to traumatic experiences - my services will be personalized to suit your needs.
