“Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart” writes Fyodor Dostoyevsky. This quote, though inspiring, leaves much unexplained. How do we transform our experiences of pain and suffering (i.e. anxiety, grief, depression, relationship discord) into the beauty of a deeper heart? Marcel Proust provides a clue, “We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full”. Thus, the transformation of suffering comes through full experience. In a society that tends to bury suffering, a guide specializing in unearthing its hidden potential is key.

“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.

As a man, therapy might not be your preferred use of time, yet a growing part of you is curious about what could be. Throughout your life, you’ve felt minimized and closed off from your potential. Maybe you’ve grown curious about that. You know you have lots to offer, but you are uncertain of what that could look like. You want to gain confidence and independence to realize your dreams or control your addictions, but you haven’t found someone who cares or understands enough to provide you with the support you need. You are noticing a new excitement and motivation to connect with yourself and others in a healthier way.

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.
