Do you want to improve some area of life? Do critical inner voices or thoughts make you feel bad about yourself? Are you feeling unnecessary shame, fear, or guilt? Are you anxious or fearful in safe situations? Sex life not the way you want it? Are you healing from illness? Do you avoid doing ordinary things because they make you uncomfortable? Is internalized oppression draining the joy of life? Can your marriage use a tune-up? Do you just want to improve your performance at work or in the arts or sports? I also use standard techniques such as Somatic Experiencing, DBT, Narrative Therapy, Family Therapy and modern Hypnotherapy.

No one ever said it’s easy being a thinking, feeling, spiritual being. You are not alone in feeling anxious, depressed, grieved, angry or disconnected in a relationship. Most of what troubles us is caused by a perceived need to protect ourselves from injury. Fortunately, we all have resources for healing. In a compassionate and safe environment, I enable you to adopt an accepting, compassionate, and curious relationship with your emotions and behaviours. With this foundation of healing and renewal, we become agents of our own healing. We steer our ship with confidence and vision, even when the seas are tossing and turning.

I have been in private counselling practice for 15 years, and in wellness, personal development and the media for 25 years. My practice draws self-referring, high-functioning adults/couples with addiction, phobia, anxiety, depression and attachment disorders affecting their lives beyond their historical, current or perceived ability of self-control. In couples, I usually begin individually to create safety and self-awareness, then back together towards clear self-advocacy, expression and to build trustful communication. EMDR in the couple context can clear a lot of old trauma and wounded pattern-associations that mire us in destructive relational dynamics.

Change is always hard. Whether something or someone in our life needs to change — or it already has — or we've decided that something inside ourselves needs to shift, it's never easy. But living with the feeling that something isn't right is hard too — it can leave us with frustration and resentment in our relationships, dip us down into depression and exhaustion, or put us in a pattern of all-too-familiar anxiousness, submissiveness, and anger. If any of this sounds familiar, counselling can help.

“Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional”. This wisdom reflects my approach to therapy. You can’t prevent storms from happening, you can hardly stop others from hurting you, and you may never get rid of your inner critic’s voice entirely. There's no way to erase the memories of past traumas. Yet, there surely is a way to lessen the burden, to ease the struggle, to change your relationship with others and - most importantly - with Self. Discover your way to cease the unnecessary suffering and reclaim balance and joy. How?

I regularly work with people from multicultural backgrounds, and those confronting crises of worldview, identity and belief. This includes clients struggling with their own cultural and religious upbringing, or changes in ideology and self-image. I also have an interest in the management of chronic pain and illness.

You swear you’re not going to drink today, but when 5:00 pm rolls around, you find yourself reaching for a bottle. You’ve tried everything to control your drinking – taking a break for a while, drinking only on weekends, or only in the evenings, or never alone, or only beer – but nothing seems to work. You’re tired of the hangovers, the arguments, the mornings waking up with guilt and regret. While drinking used to make everything better, now it seems it’s making everything worse. But while you know you have to do something about your use of alcohol, deep down, you’re not sure you can live without it.

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
