I specialize in therapy for men! I also work with women and people, regardless of their gender identification, sexual orientation, their ethnic and cultural background! :) Do you feel trapped? Nobody understands you? You have tried everything but nothing works? You've said it, shouted it, screamed it but no one heard you? It is difficult or impossible to say no without feeling guilty? You have been told that crying is for the weak? You've been told that something is wrong with you? I can help you work through all of this and help you become yourself again! I also offer ADHD coaching and couple's therapy (for Ontario's residents)

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change - V. Frankl. Are you wondering "why", "what next", or "what for"?" Are you looking for a change, or has a change been handed to you? You have the courage to ask these questions, to look at who you are, and to think about what's next for you. You may feel alone, or unable to answer these questions. I can offer you an opportunity to explore your strengths and challenges, and, in doing so, discover opportunities and resources that will help you move forward. Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human - V. Frankl.

"Awareness is like the sun, it transforms everything that it touches." Have you ever found yourself in what seems to be an unsolvable situation? Living a life with no meaning? Struggling with painful long-lasting emotions and behaviours that seem to not make sense? Did you ever come to the conclusion that “just disappearing” would be the only way out? So have I, and so have many people that I helped during my 8 years of clinical practice. You are not alone.

I became a therapist because, just like you, I am human and have had my fair share of battles. It took a long time for me to get to where I am today. I recognize that in moments of hopelessness, it is hard to find determination, that depression can be scary, that anxiety can be overwhelming, and that traumatic experiences can leave one feeling emotionally exhausted and drained out. I acknowledge the stigma associated with mental health and in going to therapy. For this reason, I know how crucial it is to provide therapy that is client-centered, empathetic, and unique to each person’s needs.

Are you struggling with anxiety in the form of worrying, intrusive thoughts, or maybe other uncomfortable experiences such as panic? Perhaps you have experienced a traumatic situation at work or in your personal life that continues to impact your life months or years down the line. These experiences can take us away from living lives consistent with our vision or values. Change can be difficult, yet very rewarding. I have 8 years of experience guiding individuals in their wellness journeys toward improved clarity and alignment with their values and goals.

In the chaos of the world we live in, it can be easy to feel lost and confused. For all of us, there are times when we will need additional support from someone with whom we can genuinely connect in a safe and non-judgemental space. Someone who will not just listen, but actually hear. Someone who will always do their utmost to understand. Someone who will walk beside us as we find our way out of confusion and into clarity. Someone who might help us to see things we've missed along the way. I hope I can be that someone for you.

With a background in psychology and social work, I like to engage clients in psychoeducation, concrete practices and narrative processing, to help them best understand their emotional, somatic and behaviour-based responses to people and events. I believe that learning about topics such as the mind-body connection, emotional development, identities and relational roles help us to create a greater understanding of oneself and those around us.

Sometimes life can be a real kick in the pants, get messy, bog you down, or is just plain crappy. And that sucks. You might be experiencing difficult feelings, have challenges in connecting with others, or feel like coping with day to day stuff is too much. Maybe there have been ongoing patterns in your life that you want to stop repeating, or perhaps you have just had a big change, like a major loss, or change in your health. Whatever it may be, you recognize that you want something different for yourself. And that's a big deal.
