Andrea Khalid, M.A., Registered Psychotherapist

Offering Services in Ottawa and throughout Ontario

Whether you have been struggling for a while or if something has just happened which shifted your mental health well-being, it’s a good time to talk about it.  Reaching out for help is not a sign of weakness, it's a sign of strength and courage.  I work collaboratively with clients to ensure we are meeting their needs. I view my role as helping to develop healthier coping mechanisms, a better understanding of symptoms and build resiliency. Therapy is a journey of self-reflection and understanding. Trusting the process can be difficult, but well worth it.

About Me

I have been working in the Psychology field for over 15 years. Before my passion for clinical work, I worked in neuropsychological assessment and clinical research.  I hold a Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology and I am currently in the process of achieving my PhD in Counselling and Psychotherapy.  


I specialize in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - an evidence-based psychotherapeutic approach looking at the connection between our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. When working with trauma, I use Prolonged Exposure Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I also utilize self-compassion and strength-based approaches with clients.  Client well-being and confidentiality are my priorities and I strive to ensure clients feel safe and comfortable throughout the process. Building and establishing a trusting relationship is integral to the outcome of therapy. Please feel free to get in touch for more information - I am available to answer any questions you might have.

What to expect in the first therapy session

The purpose of therapy is to improve psychological health. The first session will cover informed consent, answering any questions or concerns you have and I will collect a clinical history from you. Another important aspect of the initial session will be to set therapeutic goals (what you are hoping to get from therapy and where would you like to see some change).  We will also discuss a treatment plan. The therapeutic approach should always be collaborative between therapist and client - and I am open to your feedback throughout the process.
