Ph.D. (Texas A&M), M.Ed. (McGill)
Thank you for reaching out to me. If you are ready for change and are committed to growth then my skills and knowledge are at your service. I offer individual psychotherapy and teach mindfulness and compassion skills in groups, retreats and professional workshops.
I am an experienced registered clinical health psychologist with a love for Third Wave, Compassion Focused and Mindfulness and mindfulness-inspired psychological interventions. I am the founder and Chief Compassion Officer of two sister practices: Ottawa River Psychology for psychologists and Ottawa River Integrative Mental Health psychotherapists specialized in Third Wave, Compassion Focused and Mindfulness Inspired psychotherapies focused on well-being and growth.
Buddhist psychology and meditation practice are an important part of my work. I am an International Mindfulness Teachers Association Certified Professional Mindfulness Teacher, a senior Certified Mindful Self Compassion Teacher and regularly offer free online guided meditations as well as quarterly daylong retreats and mindfulness-based groups to support those motivated to awaken their hearts and minds.
All psychological services are offered in a secure online environment for now, but we are planning on return to hybrid practice starting in August or September 2022. Follow announcements at our group practice website or social media for Ottawa River Integrative Mental Health and Ottawa River Psychology.
I am now taking new referrals for individual psychotherapy starting in Summer and Fall 2022.
I am also taking on health care professionals interested in ACT, mindfulness, buddhist psychology, internal family systems, mindful self compassion, and compassion focused therapy for individual and group consultation.
For information on working with me in groups or on retreat see the Learn link on this webpage.

Love for all parts of you,
Kimberly Sogge, Ph.D., C.Psych. CPO #4531
