As a clinical Social Worker, I provide a safe space for individuals to open up about their challenges, utilizing a variety of therapeutic strategies and interventions to help elevate people's lives so they can have better opportunities to live an authentic and fulfilling life. My lived experiences are incorporated into my clinical work to support others in connecting “head to heart” in challenging and dismantling the many social constructs people often feel they need to uphold. As you begin to lean into the vulnerability of speaking your truth, the awakening journey begins.

You thought this would be easier. All your mom friends seem so happy but you're confused, maybe depressed, and completely overwhelmed. And your body doesn't feel like your body anymore, either. Nothing looks or feels the same and no one told you that the miracle of birth and breastfeeding isn't all that swell. Your partner doesn't seem to know how to help, your inlaws are meddling, and you want to run away and sleep for a month. You're overwhelmed, exhausted, and you need to vent without judgement. I get it. I've been there, too. No judgement, no more "shoulds". I'm hear to listen, to support, and to help you enjoy motherhood.

Life has become challenging for adults and children alike. Connecting with others may seem difficult or outright impossible at times. Maybe you feel stuck, unmotivated or fearful. When things feel rough, it isn’t always that easy to find solutions and to feel strong on your own. As a Registered Social Worker (MSW) and Psychotherapist, I have been teaming up with children and adults since 2009 to try and make sense of the unique journey that each of us is on.

Adults who are struggling with relationship issues, monogamy, spirituality, neurodiversity, and adulting are my kind of people. Adulting is hard enough. But if your unique way of thinking and being in the world doesn't seem to fit with everyone else's and you think it's time to figure things out, you're in the right place. I work with adults who are questioning and want to find where they fit. Because we're not all vanilla or the same. There's room for everyone. I also work with kids and teens with ADHD/learning issues (and their parents) to help them learn coping skills and strategies in a world that just doesn't get it.

You’ve lost your way. You’re not the parent or partner you want to be. Reactions come quickly and regrets soon follow. Solutions aren’t coming as easily as they used to, and you alternate between anxiousness and despair. Some days you feel okay and others, like today, you admit that maybe you need a different approach. It feels as if you’ve lost hope and faith in your ability to cope with the many stresses that have come your way. A new child. A relationship conflict. A loss. And so, you find yourself here, contemplating this next step. You’ve come to the right place.

Having kids is amazing and wonderful. And very, very hard. No one really talks about how hard it is, which makes the rest of us feel like we're doing something wrong. The baby you walked the floor with at night is gone. You have no idea what changed and sometimes you have no idea what's going on. That sweet baby has become a sassy tween, a grunting teen, or is struggling in some way. It's affecting your relationship, your work, and (most importantly!) YOU. Your parenting style isn't working, or you're not sure you ever had one. Whether you want to work on you, your relationships, or your parenting, I would love to help.

As a therapist specializing in high-conflict separation, parenting coordination, mediation, co-parenting counselling, parental alienation, Family Reunification Therapy, and custody access evaluations and assessments, I've worked with hundreds of families who have struggled through the separation process to become successful co-parents. As a practice owner, we also work with children who's parents are considering or involved in the court process to give them space and a voice of their own. I also work with people who have to deal with high conflict people or relationships to develop better coping and conflict resolution skills.

I have been working in the Social Work field since 2010. For the first 2 years, I assisted those who struggled primarily with their mental health. From 2012 up until early 2019, I specialized in addictions of both youth and adults. Lastly, since 2016, I have provided private counseling supporting a variety of ages and presenting concerns. Issues range from anxiety, as the most prominent, to grief, couples, bullying and more. Social Workers are trained with various techniques in order to relieve their clients of whichever burden they may be carrying. It is my passion to listen and help develop a plan to move forward in your life.

Sometimes men are great at pretending everything's fine – even when life is falling apart. Trying to carry the weight of the world all by yourself is a sure path to depression, anger issues, self-medicating, lashing out, and increased stress and physical symptoms. Whether you're trying to figure out what your partner wants (what does she mean by "communicate better" anyway?), or you're needing to talk through personal, work, or family issues, I can help you get to a better place. If you're worried that you're the only one, don't. There is literally nothing you can tell me that I haven't heard or worked with before.

Counselling For Men
Registered Social Worker, MSW, RSW
Verified
Most of us men have been taught that we have to manage things by ourselves. To hide our feelings. Or we don't have feelings. Guess what that leads to? Anger, irritability, relationship issues, work problems, and trouble connecting with our kids, friends, and partners. Maybe drinking too much and checking out, too. Or cheating on our partner, because it's easier than trying to figure out what's going on at home. Maybe you don't even realize how bad things have gotten until your partner tells you that you "can't communicate", you're messing up, and now you have no idea what to do and you're defensive and confused.

You’re getting calls from the school about your child. If he even makes it to school. Your sweet little baby is almost unrecognizable. She hates herself, she hates you, and you’re an idiot for trying to help. He spends most of his time in his room glued to the phone or ignoring you. You can’t figure out what’s going on, you're frustrated, tired, and at a loss as a parent as to how to help. I get it. Parenting is hard sometimes. If your child or adolescent is struggling with issues around peer relationships, anxiety, depression, school, parental separation, gender identity, ADHD, and other types of neurodiversity, I can help.

Even though your life looks good from the outside, something just doesn’t feel right. No matter how much you accomplish, you continue to feel guilty, small and like you’re not enough. When you think about it, you probably don't even know who "you" are or what you enjoy anymore. Maybe you never really did know. It may feel as though stress has taken over your life. Work is no longer fulfilling, your home life & relationships are suffering and you feel defeated at the end of the day. All of this leaves you feeling overwhelmed, down and confused, and you're not sure how to move forward.

When did you last feel truly connected to yourself, to the people around you and to your environment? Anxiety, trauma, hopelessness, depression, ADHD, Motor Vehicle Accidents and job and school-related issues can disconnect people from the lives they want to live. As a therapist, I have worked with people to help them discover and pursue the lives they wish to live. I use a Polyvagal, body-oriented, highly positive, strength-based, thought-changing style of therapy to assist people to determine and achieve their goals in life.
