Feeling distant from your spouse? Fighting with your teen? Struggling with anger, anxiety, depression, or addiction? Experienced trauma? I work with a variety of clients, but particularly enjoy problems in which clients that have felt misunderstood or mistreated. This includes working with adolescents, parent-teen conflict, relationship difficulties in both individuals and couples, addictions, anger or anxiety management, trauma, and Borderline Personality Disorder. In many of the clients I see, fear confusion are often barriers to a satisfying life. Healing often comes through gaining confidence in areas one can control.

I tend to be direct and to the point. I seek to change lives by changing perspectives. I look for reasons why you have the behavioural, emotional, relational struggles you have because they are all there for a reason. I place a high value on both emotional and rational ways of thinking about issues and teach people how to use both in positive ways.

Let me show you how anger can lead to positive change, fights can be good for your relationships, and that addiction recovery is about finding ways to feel better rather than being broken.

Dean (David) Buhr's Groups

Justifiable Anger: Conflict & Anger Management

Anger management done different! Rather than just shutting down and "managing" anger, this group will explore anger as a helpful tool to identify injustice and challenges in your life. When understood correctly, the energy and power can be harnessed into healthy conflict to resolve issues in relationships and life circumstances. Contact me to find out if this approach is right for you.
