About

**Accepting New Clients** I believe that the pain each man goes through is unique to his issues but is not dissimilar from the pain other men experience. Most men are taught about what feelings are acceptable to feel and in what situations it is acceptable to feel them. This can lead to men hearing phrases such as “toughen up”, “be strong” or “don’t cry”. Some men will say “I’m alright” when answering questions about their well being when they really aren’t “alright”. I believe such phrases and answers must be challenged. Every man deserves to be heard and have his feelings acknowledged. Together, we will work towards that goal.
I am a part of the team at Harnessing Change Psychotherapy where we value a holistic and eclectic approach to counselling. This means that our approach can be tailored to meet your specific needs paying attention to the values each client holds. I have been helping men increase their mental health for the past decade and it remains my passion to do so.
Although my main focus is male mental health, I am adept at helping anyone or couples deal with depression, stress, anxiety, grief, conflict, and addictions. In session, you can expect me to be genuine, compassionate and accepting. It is not my place to judge rather it is my place to help you improve your mental health and reclaim what you may have lost.
