You’re a man who pushes through, keeps things in, and exploring emotions and feelings is for other people. You’re just not good with the emotional stuff. You’re starting to see that this hard-shell, outwardly confident self is getting in the way of relationships. You’re either completely keeping your stress inside or leaning too heavily on your partner to vent. This leads to either shutting yourself away for a while or exploding with anger and frustration (sometimes both). You care so so deeply for your important people and you want to be with them without irritation brewing underneath.
You want to be present with them and enjoy their company. You want to be hopeful about the future. Making sense of all that stuff running through your head, starts with saying it out loud. It’s like putting all the jumbled pieces on the table and sorting through. You can get better at managing emotions and navigating your mood and relationships.
The only way to do so is to look at all those pieces; avoiding, pushing through, and distraction only work for so long. You can book a free phone consultation from my website or email me to get started. Available to see anyone online in Ontario.

I primarily use what's called "Emotion-Focused Therapy". It's guided by how emotions arise and affect our ability to operate our inner world and relationships. Importantly, my goal is to have you better able to move through emotions without shutting them out.
