Hello! I appreciate you taking the time to learn about me and my practice. My name is Sam, I’m a Registered Counselling Therapist (candidate) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists and a professional member with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I believe therapy is a collaborative process and that success in therapy is often associated to the therapeutic relationship. In my practice I believe everyone has the inherent capacity for growth, empowerment, and connection to self and others. As such, I strive to create a safe and nonjudgmental space where you feel seen and heard.

Is it tough to stay balanced and positive during these difficult times? Are you and your partner feeling a disconnect? Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) can help! A world renown approach to individual or couples counselling that provides a safe, judgement free space, while improving connection. I also offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) which assists in processing trauma. The natural healing process resolves unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain; EMDR speeds up this process!

I provide holistic psychotherapy and wellness counselling to individuals, couples and families. I recognize that working through difficult life circumstances and challenging relationships can be stressful and isolating, resulting in feelings of anxiety, low mood, poor coping skills or a general sense of being stuck in a cycle of unhealthy patterns. To move forward in our lives, it’s helpful to honor our experiences, accept that deeper emotions are appropriate in certain situations and build trust in ourselves to know the difference.

On the outside, you look like you have it all together, but truth is, on the inside you're a mess. You used to pride yourself on being able to balance a successful career, kids and a healthy relationship. But now, you feel burnt out and anxious; your worries are always rolling around in your mind. Lately, you've been more irritable and frustrated toward your kids and spouse , which makes you feel terrible. Worse yet, you've completely forgotten about yourself. It feels like you are drowning under the weight of your problems and you are desperate to get free. You never imagined yourself seeing a therapist, but you know you need help.

You’re exhausted and grumpy. You thought having a kid would make your family complete, but now all you and your partner talk about are diapers and schedules, and who is (or isn’t) taking care of the kids. It’s hard to hold onto the joy everyone tells us our kids should bring. You worry that things will never get better, and that you and your partner will just grow further and further apart. Even worse, you’re starting to resent your partner , your kid, and everyone else that makes it look so easy to have the perfect little family. It’s so lonely feeling like the only one who is struggling with life and family these days.

I have worked with clients who have multiple chronic conditions, depression, addictions, anxiety; experienced an overwhelming event (accident/physical assault) as well as chronic trauma (long-term illness/ child/ partner abuse).
CURRENTLY NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS. “Until you stop breathing, there's more right with you than wrong with you." (Jon Kabat-Zinn) This is also my guide and intention as a Registered Counselling Therapist. My work is to help an individual experience themselves differently while providing compassion, presence and skill in a safe space. I offer an integrated, eclectic approach that is based on each client's needs. Understanding attachment style, the effects of trauma and the mind-brain-body connection inform my therapeutic approach.

I have specialized training in sex therapy and work with individuals and couples to resolve sexual problems that may be getting in the way of their relationships and their wellbeing.
I work with adults and older teens, including individuals and relationships, who feel overwhelmed with stress or anxiety, are lacking motivation, and perhaps even feel stuck and are not sure where to turn for support. Many of my clients have experienced anxiety, depression or issues in their relationships. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them identify the issues and areas that are keeping them stuck. Considering your unique needs and goals, we will create a plan to help you recover feelings of wellbeing and wholeness, and feel more fulfilled in your life.

I have 10 years of experience working with youth, individuals and couples to dive beyond the symptoms of distress so as to find and help you address the root causes.
You are greater than your struggles. Through counselling, we can carefully examine each challenge, evaluating and better understanding how you got to where you are. Through this exploration, we will discover the strengths and identify coping mechanisms you have developed along the way in order to deal with your challenges.
