I enjoy working with clients who are experiencing a difficult life transition, a mental health struggle such as anxiety or depression or who want to heal from past trauma. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to develop treatment goals for personal growth, and to help individuals live a more authentic life. Evidence-based individual therapy can increase self-awareness, resiliency and overall happiness. I work with couples experiencing turbulence in their relationship, to recover from infidelity, to recreate that spark or improve communication. I also specialize in family therapy and work with children and youth.

As a husband and father, I understand the challenges we can encounter in our most intimate circle. If you are willing to make this investment in couples therapy you want to know your therapist is devoted to the work. My virtual Ontario practice (Toronto based) is exclusive to couples. The pandemic made me realize it made less and less sense to limit my specialized couples practice to residents of Toronto when they were seeing me virtually anyway! Presenting issues couples may come to work with me on include: trauma; infidelity; communication; addiction; parenting; life stressors; sex and intimacy; ADHD; anxiety and depression.

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couple’s Therapy as well as training in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS).
We often believe that we are alone in our suffering, that no one has experienced or could understand what we are going through, or conversely, that the suffering of others is much greater than our own, that ours does not deserve attention. Fear of judgment and vulnerability can keep us from reaching out when we need it most. That is why I believe there is power in creating space to explore obstacles that hinder us from thriving. Whether you are making sense of your past, navigating issues in the present, or planning for your future, it would be my privilege to walk alongside you on your journey of healing.

Learning to understand our minds so that we can change the negative scripts that keep us stuck in the same patterns is the greatest gift I have to offer. It is only then that we can experience our full potential of happiness and fulfillment in life. I use a client-centred approach. My practice welcomes the diversity of all humans.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Ottawa Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
