About

Many men experience difficulty connecting with themselves and others. At times, you may be feeling stuck and lost. Shame, guilt, anger, isolation, and pain have become the driving forces within your life. Relationships with the people you care about the most, including yourself, have been impacted by your behaviour. You have started to question whether you are a good father, son, or partner. No matter how hard you try or what you do, it seems like you will never be free from the mental, physical, financial, and interpersonal difficulties you face. You are not alone, and we are here to help support you on this journey.
In our work together, we will explore how you arrived at this part of your journey and identify unhelpful and destructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that have impacted your ability to live authentically and be true to yourself. We will develop goals and clarify values that are meaningful to you while focusing on your strengths, gifts, and assets.
Our specializations include: sexual addiction, porn addiction, grief, life transitions, relationships, parenting, trauma, anger management, sexuality, anxiety, video game addiction, and men's issues. We offer virtual therapy to men across Ontario via our secure telehealth platform. Call, email us, or visit our website for a free 20 minute consultation today.
