Ottawa Team

Alice Lurie, M.A., R.P.

From time to time life can feel overwhelming. A therapist can help you during these times by providing a safe, judgment-free environment for you to overcome personal obstacles or to improve your relationships. In my practice I support clients as they identify and hone their own strengths to overcome personal struggles, while forming additional skills and self-reliance so they are confident in handling future challenges.

It can take courage to reach out for help. You are looking for a therapist you can feel safe with to examine your thoughts and feelings and behaviours. I work with individuals and couples to create a nurturing space where they can overcome anxiety and depression, the aftereffects of distressing and traumatic experiences, and improve the quality of their relationships. My specific interests include anxiety, stress, depression and grief, anger, emotional regulation, and career and workplace difficulties.

I believe each person deserves an evidence-based treatment plan, tailored to their unique experiences and difficulties. I’m very excited by ongoing advances in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Based Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). I take an integrated approach to ensure your needs and strengths are at the heart of our work together.

I have completed my Masters of Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. I am a Therapist at the Centre for Interpersonal Relationships under the supervision of Dr. Dino Zuccarini, C. Psych., where I see individual adult and couple clients.
