Awkward Owl Psychotherapy, Orillia Ontario

Welcome to Awkward Owl Psychotherapy

Therapy is, for many of us, one of the only spaces where we can allow ourselves to be fully seen without judgment or expectations. 



Many people come to psychotherapy having experienced a chronic sense of loneliness or disconnection, having had to hide or reject parts of themselves in an effort to find acceptance and belonging. Therapy is a space that provides the safety and guidance to express and explore all of the heavy or overwhelming emotions and experiences that have built up over time. 

I am experienced working with clients with a history of emotional neglect and abuse, mood disorders, low self-esteem, and eating disorders. I bring an attachment, relational, and trauma-informed approach to psychotherapy, as well as warmth, openness, and genuine care and curiosity. Therapy with me is reflective, thought-provoking, and emotional, and through making sense and meaning out of what we are experiencing, we can create transformation in our sense of self and ways of living. 

Brittany Dagenais Registered Psychotherapist

Hi, I'm Brittany Dagenais (she/her) and I'm a 
Registered Psychotherapist

I absolutely love the work I do with clients! I work with individuals of all genders and sexualities to find relief from deeply held distress and emotional pain.


At the heart of my therapeutic philosophy is the belief that healing happens within relationships, not within aloneness. A strong therapeutic relationship is an essential part of meaningful therapy. Insight and skills are important, but it is warmth, care, and unconditional acceptance that create the stable foundation needed for change.
