If you are feeling lost, disconnected or uncertain about life, you will find a safe space with me to explore your challenges in life with a supportive, empathic listener. Modern living is inherently stressful, and many resort to using unhealthy coping strategies that can get you stuck; by getting curious about the stuck-ness together, we can work together to untangle the knots and shift back into your natural state of wholeness. If you have lost your centre, feel reactive or unbalanced by the demands of life you will benefit from counselling. I will help you return to your core Self and find passion and purpose in life.

My adult male clients are men from Mars; they are dealing with marriage or relationship challenges at the same time as their work life is increasingly a challenge. My Neuro atypical clients need help navigating the conflict s between their hyper focused interests and their relationships with people that do not understand them at all well. Anxiety control is always an issue with many clients ; emotional regulation with somatic or attentional treatments of mood is a specialty for me. My married couples are trying to build excitement and connection back into their adult lives.

I help clients move through life's difficulties . When relationships change, when we feel stuck in habits that take us away from what we really want. When we recognize the need to make peace with those aspects of the past that are holding us back from the life we wish to live . As a body-centred therapist working with trauma, I help you access the wisdom of your body, and learn how to reclaim a deeper calm, self regulated state, where you can update the limiting beliefs and emotional reactivity that often prevents the full expression of your potential. Our thoughts and thinking rarely give us a clear picture of the world

We are experiencing a paradigm shift in how we view, treat, and resolve mental health complexities. It is no longer sufficient to simply learn about our traumas and understand their origins to expect resolution. We are now approaching trauma from a psychobiological perspective, recognizing that trauma is physically embedded in the cells and tissues of our bodies. By developing our felt sense of these traumas, bringing focused attention to them, and utilizing somatic techniques, trauma resolution becomes achievable.

There are times in life when we feel afraid, sad, anxious, angry, stuck, overwhelmed. We can’t find a feeling of ease and contentment within ourselves. We need someone to listen empathically and without judgement, to see us for who we truly are. I’m here to help you connect to your inner knowing and heal old wounds, make sense of confused states, soothe anxiety and sadness, resolve trauma, and appreciate life again. Men in our culture require attention to how their feeling selves have been repressed. Couples, in trouble, often have a deep yearning to become relational and connected while maintaining their authentic selves.

I support adults and adolescents who are struggling with a range of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, grief, substance use disorders, sleep disorders, compassion fatigue, moral injury, and others. My clients often arrive feeling at the end of their rope - lost, alone, angry, afraid, overwhelmed, thoroughly drained, hopeless, or sometimes just completely stuck. They want their lives to be better, but don’t know how to begin to identify steps to take or how to manage that change. They want help dealing with difficult emotions and they want their lives to make sense.

After a 20+ year career in a global company, I felt it was time to do some positive work. I was drawn to this work because I am genuinely interested in people and I derive a great deal of satisfaction from helping people move forward in their lives. Stress, Anxiety, and Depression can derail us from finding enjoyment in our lives. If you're in this situation, perhaps I can help.

As a generalist, my intention is to provide broad service. I am currently employed as a college instructor, so I enjoy working with adolescent and early adult age people who may be dealing with anxiety or depression, or who find themselves stuck in making important life decisions. Also, one of my previous jobs was as a welder for CP Rail. So I am familiar with the very real issues faced in everyday work life. My training also includes family and couples therapy. Because I believe that we do not do well in isolation, helping individuals and families deal with the intricacies of family life is a vital to aspect of my practice.

Male Counsellors

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.
