When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Hearing your child say "I wish I was never born! I hate you! I wish I was dead!" is one of the most painful experiences as a parent. After hearing this, you decided it was time to find some help for your child and yourself. You thought things were going to get better, but it hasn't and now you're worried that it's only going to get worse. The parental guilt is overwhelming. You're baffled by their big meltdowns and think that they need to learn some skills to cope with their feelings in a better way.

I would love to meet you and offer you real change and skills to move you forward into wholeness and freedom. I believe the best healing involves all parts of us; mind, body, emotions and spirit. In our fast-paced society, opportunities to be deeply heard, respected and affirmed are scarce. I help clients from a position of respect and non-judgemental curiosity, while clarifying core beliefs, values and goals for change. The tools I have to offer are evidence-based and scientifically proven.

I have a specific area of practice - Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. OCD is considered to be a debilitating, chronic, and sneaky condition. OCD often latches on to what is most sacred and cherished to us. It can cause us to question our morals, values, and beliefs. Much time and energy is then spent trying to gain relief from doubt, uncertainty, and distress. Breaking cycles of Obsessions and Compulsions is key to regaining intention, peace, and freedom.

Mind-Body Health: I assist people in developing three fundamental human "systems" of Mind, Body, and Spirit/Energy. These three interactive Systems work at the same time, like three cogs in a machine, and are somewhat unique to each person according to their outlook on life and the context they find themselves in. For example the Fear around COVID has brought forth additional stressors to impact these Systems by activating the sympathetic nervous system (the fight/flight/freeze stress response). Together we will develop practical life "experiments" to better activate these Systems for psychological flexibility (e.g., meditation)

Children (6 to 10) Counsellors
If you're looking for help with children or for a V9R child counsellor these professionals provide help with child development, child learning and child education. They include child counsellors in V9R, child psychologists, child psychotherapists and V9R child therapists. They can help with child abuse, mother child issues, child neglect, child behaviour and child discipline. Child counselling in V9R may include help with child behavioural issues, child family relationships and child sleep.

We often colloquially refer to our children as 'kids', and so may seek a V9R counsellor for kids' learning issues or help with a kid's education. Such child counsellors can help with kid abuse, mother kid issues, kid neglect, kid behaviour and kid discipline. Kid counselling in V9R may include help with kids' behavioural issues, kid family relationships and kids' sleep.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in V9R are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in V9R you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in V9R and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in V9R or family therapy in V9R.
