What is The Whitestone Clinic?
We are an Ottawa-based clinic that offers counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples, families, and groups. We work with clients facing a wide range of psychological issues but specialize in helping clients with intimacy disorders such as sex addiction and codependency.
The Whitestone Clinic is a "clinic" in the sense of a "training clinic". Our therapists are trained and experienced in various schools of treatment, and use education and therapeutic models to help our clients. We are NOT a medical or psychiatric clinic and do NOT provide clinical services.
Please note: The Whitestone Clinic does not provide medical or psychiatric care, nor do we offer treatment or care for the issue of pedophilia.
The Whitestone Clinic’s purpose is to help treat people through talk therapy. We also have a specialized mission to provide services, programs and activities aimed at the treatment, outreach and education related to those in the Ottawa area who may have a sex addiction. The Whitestone Clinic is committed to the advocacy, awareness, and funding for sex addiction prevention, as well as the treatment for those affected by sex addiction, and includes helping those in relationship to the one struggling with addiction.
Our Therapy Approach
We have several Ottawa-based therapists who use various therapy approaches. We primarily use a person-centred approach with tools and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotion-Focussed Therapy (EFT) and Task-Centered Competency Based Therapy (TCBT). As much as possible, we adapt the therapy to the client’s needs using empirically tested Feedback Informed Therapy (FIT) techniques.
