Therapy is a sacred and safe space where change and acceptance are possible. Frequently, I find myself curious about the human experience and I have noticed that no one’s story is ever the same as another. In my experience, I have had the privilege of journeying with many people from various walks of life and often uncomfortable emotions are processed during our time together. It always surprises me how much untapped strength and resilience people possess and my role as their therapist is to help my clients come to this realization themselves.

Have you worked hard to change the way you think and yet struggle to change the way you feel? I may be able to help you. I am an RP in fully independent practice, and I believe that holistic, meaningful and lasting change can occur when we weave our body and our mind's voices and experiences into the narrative of who we are and who we aspire to be. If you have ever listened to your "gut" instinct, soothed yourself using breath or felt the urge to move to a favourite song, you have experienced the benefit of the mind-body connection! Together, we will deepen this connection therapeutically to encourage relief, change and growth.

As a man, emotions and sharing them often create barriers for relationships with others and with ourselves. Support around emotional awareness for men is important to help build a better connection with all aspects of our lives. Being able to share and communicate who we "really" are is vital to a fulfilling life. I help men deal with emotional awareness. Supporting men to work through their own emotional histories and how that effects them daily is the key to connecting to your true "self". We need to address issues, like Trauma, Addiction and Shame, to help you understand the roots of emotional identity and its effects today.

I have been providing collaborative mental health and addiction services for youth, adolescents and adults in the Ottawa Region for the past 18 years. I work closely with individuals and families to identify the best treatment plans to meet their unique needs. Some techniques I use include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Collaborative Problem Solving, Mindfulness Integrated CBT, Trauma Practice and Addiction Issues. I use an assertive care approach which can provide some support between sessions, as needed, for clients to meet their goals with non-life-threatening mental health challenges. Many clients have found this very helpful.

For many of the people I work with, there is an addictive substance or behaviour present in their life that they can't remove and has become problematic for them in their relationships, in their ability to work, and in their mental and/or physical wellbeing. Many have tried to stop on their own but haven't been able to get more than a few months of abstinence before going back to the addictive substance or behaviour and they understand they need someone with experience to guide them in their efforts. The goals vary from person to person and I work with each individual to reach their specific goal of what a healthier life looks like.
