When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

I see clients of all ages and backgrounds, presenting with a wide array of issues and concerns. Some are seeking a long-term therapeutic relationship, and for others, a single session is adequate. Either way, I want to create a safe and productive therapeutic environment for clients to feel comfortable in talking about their lives. I want to collaborate with clients to help them glean a better understanding of their lives, and come up with ways to make it through their day feeling better and more confident in their actions.

I specialize in the areas of anxiety, depression, and addiction. In my experience, anxiety and depression often show up together. When they take hold, we frequently fall into traps of addiction in efforts to numb the emotional pain. Addictions can be an effective short-term strategy, but they are not a solution that brings healing. Instead, they increase the pre-existing symptoms, usually adding a whole new set of problems as well. Whether it is a gambling addiction, an online gaming addiction, a shopping addiction, pornography addiction, a substance use addiction (etc), my training and skills are focussed on your healing, growth, and freedom.

I have been working as a counsellor for 24 years and my work focuses on addiction and trauma issues. They often go hand in hand but not always as each person is unique. The focus of my counselling work is very respectful as I acknowledge that you know yourself best. Most people seek out counselling because they are stuck in old patterns that they have outgrown yet need help to move forward in a new, more helpful way. I appreciate the courage it takes to reach out and I will work hard to help you make the changes you need.

Without a safe place to work through these normal reactions to abnormal events, careers can be cut short and the families of these professionals struggle as well. Together we can find solutions for work related stress and other issues such as: the impact on the families, grief and loss, addiction/recovery and enhance existing coping skills.

My view on counselling is based upon the level of trust and the quality of the connection that we are able to create together. In essence, the relationship that we develop together is key. I would wish to provide you with a safe, caring environment where you could come to feel completely heard and understood. I see my role as being more of a Guide, offering support while at the same time gently encouraging your growth by pointing out certain areas, thoughts, beliefs or behaviours that may be keeping you stuck, or that you may be unaware of.

Sometimes, life can get downright challenging. We have an idea of what we want our life to look like, but problems such as anxiety, depression, or perhaps the effects of traumatic experiences get in the way of our ability to build the life we want for ourselves. It not only affects ourselves, but also our relationships with the ones we love most. It can feel very discouraging, and often, lonely. Thankfully it doesn't have to be this way for long. This is where counselling comes in, and this is where you can make the changes you have longed to see in your life in a safe and supportive space.

See more therapy options for V9R

Gambling Counsellors
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or V9R gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in V9R typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in V9R.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a V9R gambling counsellor or gambling counsellors in V9R or those experienced with gambling behaviors in V9R.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in V9R are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in V9R you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in V9R and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in V9R or family therapy in V9R.
