"It's challenging to be a sensitive man in our modern world. Perhaps you're angry, struggling with procrastination and feeling like a failure because you lack the purpose, motivation, and confidence to do something worthwhile with your life. You don't speak up about this struggle because it is hard for you to trust, open up, express your emotions, and be vulnerable, especially while still feeling masculine. As a result, you may have developed addictions to work, video games, marijuana, pornography, abusive relationships, and sex--until you are in the grips of isolation and depression, possibly even contemplating thoughts of suicide."

"Your conversations with a therapist should help you to explore your situation, look for alternative perspectives and find solutions or new strategies. Whether you are discussing sexuality issues, anxiety, depression, bipolar, trauma, addictions (alcohol, drug, sexual), GLBTQ issues you should feel supported, understood and challenged to explore all the different aspects of the situation. My goals for therapy are to help you increase coping strategies, increase communication and negotiation skills, increase self-esteem, increase your awareness of your strengths and to process difficult situations like grief and loss or the experience of a traumatic event."

However, in a safe, non-judgmental, empathetic environment, I will support you in unpacking whatever is weighing you down. Together we will find strategies and tools to help you cope and enhance your life. Life is best handled in chewable chunks. That being said, let's work on that first chunk together."

Life and the relationships we form have a way of launching feelings and experiences our way that we're not always prepared to handle. Guilt that haunts our past, buried beliefs that enhance anxieties or despair that paralyzes us from moving forward can create negative behaviours, feelings, and thoughts.

Therapy is a conversation, but it is a very unique kind of conversation. Much of this conversation involves deep listening on my part.
