Fran Isaacs
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)


I am currently completing a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology while practicing under Clinical Supervision at the Ottawa Psychotherapy Center. I am retired from my previous career but returning to the study of psychotherapy as a calling that has deep meaning for me. 

As an older person, I draw on lived experience in working to find resilience and new paths to follow. As a therapist, I draw from humanistic, existential and cognitive-behavioural therapies to focus on self-growth and self-development with issues such as life transitions, anxious or depressed feelings, emotional disturbances, current crises with relationship, LGBTQIA2S+ issues, and coming to terms with aging, loss, and grief. I care that women find ways to go out into the world to fulfill themselves, that the definition of queer is shaped by the story of self, and that the grip of negative feelings is relaxed so solutions can emerge toward self-growth and self-development.

I want to align my approaches to working with you and your present circumstances and needs. I understand how important it is that you have a safe and welcoming space to talk and are listened to with respect and care. I consider clients co-creators in the therapeutic process and I believe in working together to help find solutions, so that you can live your best life possible.
