I have a background in the education system, child welfare, settlement services with immigrants and refugees and survivors of sexual abuse .
I believe seeking supports through counselling is an act of bravery and courage and as such I consider it an honour for anyone to confide in me their struggles, hopes and aspirations. My intention is to simply be human with individuals and help guide them along their journey. Therapy is not a fix it all solution, it takes time, practice and most importantly a genuine human connection.

The clients I serve in my practice are women, people of colour, indigenous communities and lgbt2sq identified people. You’ve been in therapy before and although you’ve seen results you aren’t yet at the place you want to be. Feelings of stress, anxiety, stuckness and depression are familiar to you. You’ve been going in circles in your relationships and your career and now you’re ready to dig deeper. Your core beliefs keep pulling you back into old patterns like people pleasing, controlling behaviours, co-dependency, and difficulty prioritizing yourself and identifying your needs.

*Couples & Trauma Specialist* You may feel like you are having the same argument with your partner. Daily stress piles up and you grow further apart from one another, feeling tension and disconnect. You feel alone in your relationship. You feel frustrated, angry and hopeless, asking yourself what went wrong. You are tired of arguments and long for the love and emotional connection you felt at the beginning of your relationship. Most couples get stuck in a negative cycle and the cycle is the problem. Together we will untangle this stuck pattern and find the emotional connection, love, and peace that you want in your relationship.

Trauma, anxiety and depression can leave you feeling overwhelmed and isolated. Therapy can offer you a better way forward. My specialty is working with adults who are survivors of childhood abuse, trauma or neglect. I help my clients live more in the present that they want, rather than focus on fears from the past or worries about the future. As an experienced therapist, I've seen that when people can safely address the traumas in their life, they reduce their anxiety, depression, difficulty with relationships and trust, low self-esteem and overwhelming emotions, among other things.

You've learned to cope by controlling your feelings and while it's always worked for you in the past, lately it feels like the floodgate is going to break. You're often criticizing yourself and worrying about everything that could go wrong. You feel exhausted and overwhelmed and aren't sure how much longer you can keep the flood of emotions at bay. Before it all comes crashing down on you, you wisely know that it's time to make a change ... and you've come to the right place.

I have been a psychotherapist for the past 30 years. I specialize in a somatic (body-mind) approach to resolve issues that interfere with one's happiness and well being. We will look at how early life experiences affect us and our relationships. This helps in developing a greater understanding in how one behaves in their current life, creating more options for lasting change. This work is very effective in treating depression by helping one feel more aliveness, energy and a sense of well being.It helps with anxiety by providing tools to create a sense of calm and presence.

"I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to begin to understand your own story." I have dedicated my life to build a practice where people can come to a place of peace, where you feel comfortable and safe to unburden yourself about the most intimate and personal aspects of your life without the fear of being judged or shamed. This process allows you to shed the layers that keep you going in the same cycles and help you start a new and more fulfilling chapter in your life. Calling a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.

Are you feeling stuck in an older version of yourself that you know is ready to change? Do you live with the feeling that there's a truer version of "you" that's dying to come out? Are you held back by complicated relationships from your past, that seem to keep you in a holding pattern? Are you a couple stuck in a pattern that keeps you apart? Often we hit a place where we know we are ready for a transition, but we're just not sure what to do next. That's when therapy can be the most powerful. It's my greatest privilege to walk alongside folks just like you who are journeying towards a more meaningful, fulfilled, authentic life.

Hi, I'm Matt. Sometimes we don’t know how to get to where we want. Sometimes we think we know, but just can’t seem to get started. It can all feel like too much and we can become overwhelmed. Our goals can seem just out of reach. At these times, what we might need is a little help and support. Counselling can help. No matter what your goals are, we can work towards them together. Counselling can be a way to rediscover your strengths, re-frame your past, and utilize your experience to move positively into the future. It is a place to get curious about why you are where you are, and explore what might be holding you back.
