I am passionate about working with individuals struggling with OCD and/or other anxiety problems. Do you struggle with unwanted, bothersome thoughts about harm, germs, relationships, or sexual themes? Are you stuck in a cycle of excessive worry that you can't seem to stop no matter what you do? Do you find yourself engaging in repetitive behaviours only for the anxiety to return? These are my areas of practice and I want to help.

I have primarily worked with the male population who appear to struggle with expressing their genuine emotions to their significant others. In a safe and secure therapeutic setting, my clients can find the comfort to express themselves authentically. I aim to assist them in moving towards self-acceptance, self-compassion, and developing strategies to enhance their connections with others. Additionally, we can address emotional management techniques, including anger management, during our sessions.

If there is a magic word for change, it is resilience. Resilience is the capacity to grow despite misfortune, gaining strength from challenges rather than surrendering to them. It really is a vital life-skill and the best news is that resilience can be learned! That's a bonus, given that we cannot have complete control of our lives. Observing the positive effects of such resilience, I became more interested in helping others gain this capacity. There really is nobody quite like you and my task is to work with your individuality. This is why I focus on building your future strength. https://www.centrepsychotherapy.ca/

Sometimes we are mentally injured by events or accidents in our lives; they can cause shallow or deep wounds and trauma to our emotions. In some cases, we scratch our wounds unconsciously and worsen them instead of accepting and healing them compassionately. Uncompassionate focus on our injuries or pain can negatively impact our quality of life. They may bring stress, anxiety, depression, and other uncomfortable feelings. Counselling can soothe wounds and ease pain. I try to help you heal those wounds and improve your health. I will be there with you throughout this journey by listening to you and gaining insight together.

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.
