I have found in my work that so many of my clients have a strong desire and need for change at the core of who they are. Many people look for positive changes, which is often through their own life experience, though still find themselves feeling unfulfilled or noticing similar repetitive, unhealthy and destructive patterns showing up. By working on your self-awareness, the relationship with yourself, and your experiences in life, you will feel more confident and prepared, you then managing situations in different areas of your life in a more effective and assertive way, enhancing the respect and love you have for yourself.

Does the idea of counselling seem uncomfortable? Life brings challenges that are difficult to face alone, but they can be hard to talk about. Having a safe place where you can navigate these challenges is important. We can all benefit from having someone truly listen to and support us. I desire to highlight the strengths that each client possesses and help as you see your world through a different lens.

At times, we can find ourselves dealing with thoughts, feelings and life events that leave us experiencing profound emotions like loss, confusion or sadness. Whether the cause is based on childhood events, relationships, work or some unexpected occurrence, the effects are often fairly similar. It may be useful to consider that the goal of therapy is to bring about some kind of change - for example, going from where you are now (distress) to where you want to be (calm and centred). It's a life-changing journey I have had the privilege to accompany many clients on.

I hold a PhD in psychotherapy and practice from a more person-oriented perspective. My clients come to me with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, and work issues.. I focus on the cause of their suffering rather than just putting a band-aid on the symptoms. I help my clients see meaning in their lives and a purpose behind their current situation. We work together to find something beyond the usual, and beyond the typical things they may attribute to their suffering. I offer weekend and evening hours.

While my theoretical orientation is largely cognitive-behavioral (CBT), I also draw on solution-focussed, experiential, and humanistic approaches. My main areas of expertise include depression, anxiety problems, stress management, and anger management.

When you read the following out loud do they resonate with you? Do you often sabotage your own best intentions for yourself. Have you, or someone you love(d), experienced a life altering medical event and need to make sense of it all. Do you have trouble saying "no" to everyone but yourself? Are you thinking about transitioning your life in another direction? Do unrealistic expectations of yourself and others cause you constant pain? Are you ready to accept that you can control how you feel, and how you respond to others.

Research has shown that the most important factor in therapy is the therapeutic alliance, or plainly put, the relationship between the client and the therapist. It is this kind of relationship in counselling that has been identified as the fundamental catalyst to facilitate and enhance wellness, change and growth. This, in addition to the tools used from such modalities as CBT, DBT, EFT, etc. that can help individuals to experience change, growth and increased well being. I'm honoured to help connect with you where you will hopefully feel encouraged, challenged, supported and helped to meet your goals and make changes in your life.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
