We all have things we’ve been told about ourselves that we internalize and start telling ourselves. Do you struggle with a story or belief about yourself that holds you back? Does this cause you some stress, loneliness, conflict in your relationships, or even lead you into misusing alcohol or substances? Now, more than ever, a lot of us are feeling disconnected from others and under the spell of negative stories about ourselves. In my practice, my team and I believe that these stories can be rewritten, that we are each the author of our own lives.

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.

For more than 30 years I have counselled people having problems with depression, anxiety and life adjustment, and as well, those wanting to grow personally. I identify with the Humanistic/Positive Psychology approach and am primarily a Rogerian by practice - utilising active listening and communicating back of understanding. Not only is this very affirming and helps people find relief from their problems and concerns, but they come to more fully understand their assumptive world, achieve greater self-understanding and acceptance and a desire to develop constructive and fruitful changes in their outlook and behaviour.

“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?

Clients typically see me for issues ranging from depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship problems, to loneliness, anger, and the increasingly common 'trifecta' of addictions: tech, porn, and recreational substances. 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.

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.

Anxiety, worry, depression, or stress can prevent us from enjoying the life we desire. What we think and feel can shape our reality, how we navigate the world, and also influence how others respond to us. This is because our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours are all connected and are constantly creating feedback loops – both positive and negative. Sometimes life throws unexpected curveballs that trigger a downward spiral that (at the time) can feel impossible to recover from. Although difficult events can be destabilizing, confusing, and painful they can also offer us the greatest opportunity for growth.

Your sex or relationship issues leave your life feeling like it is in turmoil even outside of the bedroom. You’ve tried to manage things on your own, but it’s a struggle, and you’re tired of struggling. Friends and family don’t understand, but it’s not like this is something you can talk to them about anyway. And even if there is that one friend that you can talk to, they don’t really know what to say.

Although you’re surrounded by familiar faces, there’s an underlying feeling of loneliness and isolation that seems to follow you wherever you go. You long for deeper connection in your relationships, but you just can’t seem to find the right people or circles where you feel at ease. As someone who has many sides to their self, it constantly feels like you have to sacrifice parts of your identity to fit in. You’re finding it harder to enjoy the activities you once did and you’re overcome with exhaustion or restlessness as you try to get through your day. No matter how hard you try, it feels like there’s something missing.

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.
