Disconnected. Broken. Hopeless. Powerless. Stuck. Many men tell me this is how they feel in our first session. Taking the first step to make change in your life and accept support can sometimes feel the most challenging and overwhelming. As a male therapist, I have learned that working with men requires a focus on practical solutions, a safe and comfortable environment, a therapist who understands the unique personal and societal challenges men face, an emphasis on self-compassion and self-acceptance, and a willingness to address underlying issues. Book a free 20-minute consultation. Click the "website" button to start your journey.
As a counsellor at a sober living house for men, I met men from all walks of life, including those struggling with addiction, depression, relationship issues, and anxiety. I understand that men often struggle with societal expectations of masculinity and the pressure to suppress their emotions, and use a holistic lens to help men understand themselves more.
My specializations include: anxiety, depression, self-esteem, substance use, men's issues, grief, career guidance, anger management, behavioural issues, sexual addiction, ADHD, chronic pain, divorce, and alcohol use. We also offer couples counselling and therapy for partners. Click on "Website" to book a free consultation with me or another team member today
