I recognize the challenges that come with starting therapy, finding a new therapist or reconnecting with yourself through the therapeutic process again.

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.

Children, adolescents, and families face a number of challenges that can interfere with mental wellness. Perhaps your child has experienced a recent life transition such as the death or loss of a loved one, a divorce, or relocation. Perhaps your child is struggling to cope with the effects of trauma , and to make sense of their world after this event. Perhaps you, as your child’s caregiver, are looking for support – to learn strategies to respond to your child’s intense emotions, to improve your family’s communication, and to enhance healthy attachment.

I help children & teens and their parents to cope with big emotions such as stress, anger, grief, sadness, anxiety, feeling not good enough or struggling with the impact of negative life events & trauma .
It’s hard for you to watch your usually sensitive child/teen who sometimes seems mature beyond their years become quickly unglued when their big emotions hit. You’re pretty sure that anxiety, worries or low self-esteem are hiding under the big tears, emotional meltdowns, ‘sassy’ attitude and anger you see in their worst moments. While you desperately want to be there to support your child and help them through this turbulent time, the accumulation of stressors from the demands of life and parenting through a pandemic make it hard for you to be the parent you want to be in those worst moments.

I have many years of experience working with complex trauma , depression, anxiety.
It is with regret that at this time I am not taking new clients. My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that people have an inherent capacity for healthiness. I will work with you to uncover that wellbeing again so that you can live the life you deserve with more vitality and authenticity whether you suffer from chronic illness, the burden of a traumatic injury or complex trauma , a diagnosis of PTSD , anxiety, depression, unprocessed grief, or the malaise that comes from being over-stressed and not coping as well as you'd like.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
