People of all ages and backgrounds experience problems with addictions, and they can make positive changes. I can help clients by providing tools for assessment, working through the 12 steps with them, maintain accountability, and use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to pave the road to recovery.

I work with adults, children, teens and families. I believe that a therapeutic relationship is a partnership where both you and I bring strengths to the table to overcome challenges that are getting in the way of living the life you want to live. All people have the capacity to heal, and the problems that bring you to therapy do not have to define who you are. I will support you in becoming the person you want to be, whether that be by healing from past trauma or by dealing with current issues that may be getting in your way.

My passion is to act as a catalyst in helping people in creating the ability to achieve their own goals and reconnect with their Personal Power. My mission is to use the skills and knowledge that I have gathered over the past 40 years to assist people in healing, using Hypnotherapy, Body Work and occasionally ancient medicines to assist my clients to holistically heal.

Therapy is as much about learning as it is about "un-learning". I'm passionate about supporting people to identify, challenge and replace negative core beliefs (i.e.: "I'm not good enough", "I don't belong", "I can't trust people," "my needs don't matter") with adaptive, affirming beliefs. With compassion, skill, and a healthy dose of humour, I invite people to get curious about the parts of themselves that feel stuck, lost, reactive, or broken. By befriending these parts, they inevitably learn to soften the never-ending list of "shoulds", judgements, and fears.

Throughout our life we encounter many transitions, changes and opportunities for growth and movement. At times we can find ourselves becoming stuck, sometimes repeatedly. Therapy is about change and becoming unstuck by leaning into the discomfort. I believe we innately lean towards wellbeing and at times we require the support of another to meet that discomfort. I look forward to the opportunity to develop a therapeutic relationship with you and work alongside you on your personal journey.

Have you been going to therapy for a while? Are you struggling with low mood, anxiety, pain, sexual disorders, or other symptoms, that you, or the medical system can't explain? Do you have complicated family dynamics, or require support in your relationship? I may be able to help. Having an intimate understanding of these issues, I offer a unique perspective on various concerns. Working as an emergency first responder and having been deployed to theatres of conflict has helped me to understand the complexity of trauma. I work with individuals, couples and families to help support the journey to inner strength.

Accepting new clients, both virtual and in-person. I work with both adults and adolescents in my therapy practice. Working with people has always been one of my passions as well as one of my gifts and responsibilities as an Indigenous man who seeks to walk and live Mino-Pimatisiwin (the good life). I work with people with the humility and realization that we are all responsible for our own healing and growth.

I am aware of how challenging it can be to seek psychological help. How do you begin the process of therapy? Who do you find to unburden all of your worries, fears, and secrets? Where do you even start, and is it too late? I would appreciate the opportunity to help you navigate counselling and move toward a happier and more actualized version of yourself.

I work with my clients to address both the underlying issues of current problems, whether those issues began only recently or have been there since childhood, and help them to learn and develop new and productive ways of living. My perspective is that change happens not only through talking about life’s stresses and problems, but also through taking a “leap of faith” to change ways of thinking and behaving.

No issues are too challenging to be solved. On the contrary, issues persist because we lack the requisite knowledge and strategies to fix them. Our experiences, knowledge, and education have enabled us to offer our clients practical, individualized, and psychological care. We specialize in treating several mental health disorders like Addictions, Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, to name a few. In addition, we provide a neutral ground for individuals, families, and couples to narrate their stories in a non-judgmental way. We believe that our clients can heal themselves. Our job at Eagles Alternative Therapy is to empower our clients.

I practice within an anti-oppressive framework, using a whole-person approach. I work with individuals, couples and families to enhance personal and relationship goals. Counseling should be a collaborative process, based on goals and values of compassion and authenticity. As a holistic practitioner, I use multiple approaches in therapy, believing strongly in finding a fit, which is personal and unique to each of us. I have experience working with people who have been involved in the justice and child welfare systems, experienced childhood/adult abuse, oppression, and multiple/complex trauma, have addictions, and a wide variety of other issues.

Hi, I am so glad our virtual paths have crossed. I believe that we all have the answers within our inner selves and are doing the best we can with what we know at any given time. Our inner world helps us understand what’s going on in our minds and bodies that’s invisible to the eye. I believe in a person-guided practice where I support/guide you to discover your authentic self. If you are ready to start exploring your inner world I would be honoured to walk alongside you.

Alcohol Use Counsellors

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
