To help you, I use Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, as well as providin a space to guide self discovery, self expression, and self compassion. Mindfulness helps us to not get overwhelmed by our distressing thoughts and physical sensations and CBT provides techniques that help changing of thoughts, reactions, and habits. It is my belief that therapy helps heal, strengthen, and or change a person’s relationship with their self, history, and environment. This change can entail adopting coping skills, increasing awareness of how we treat our selves, and management of our environment.

Dear Reader: The reason I get out of bed every morning is not because I believe life is easy - but that it is difficult. What makes life difficult is the fact, that it presents an endless series of problems which require solutions. The very process of confronting and solving life's problems can be a painful one; at times full of sadness, confusion, anxiety, hurt, anger, fear and loneliness. These are uncomfortable feelings, sometimes highly distressing and can equal the worst kind of physical pain. Fearing the suffering involved, almost all of us have attempted to avoid confronting these problems.

Sometimes, we may find ourselves facing life experiences which bring us suffering and we have not enough answers. We might feel strange, anxious, sad, worried with symptoms of emotional pain. On these moments, a therapist assistance would provide a safe, healthy environment to work on those issues. The therapy environment aims at allowing you the possibility to access to the root of difficulties rather than looking at exterior manifestations During our sessions, I will not judge either your past or present choices. My private practice includes services in Spanish (my mother tongue) providing brief and long-term treatment.

I work with folks to bring patterns to light while building new ways of being in relationship to others and feelings together. I love working with feelings - and the people who have them. Whether your feelings are big, bold, and out loud, or you're struggling to articulate or find them, I am glad to sit with you and explore them together.

I help adults struggling in relationships overcome their worries and anxiety so that they can have deeper, more authentic and connected relationships. It can be frightening and frustrating to try to deal with the struggles of anxiety and worry in relationships on your own and without guidance to help you cope with these uncomfortable feelings. By creating a safe environment to explore and understand one's underlying feelings, one creates more freedom and choice in how to respond in a relationship as opposed to repeating old painful patterns and reactions, which can leave one feeling more disconnected and alienated.

I have the goal of helping people become their own therapists. I work with people feeling stuck in unhelpful thinking patterns and who find themselves returning to behaviours that they perceive to be unfulfilling or unhelpful. My primary therapeutic orientation is cognitive-behavioural, but I also have experience incorporating evidence-based approaches like mindfulness, self-compassion, emotion regulation skills, and motivational interviewing (MI). Treatment is tailored to the needs and goals of each person. Grenadier's practice is LGBTQ positive, trauma-informed, and weight inclusive.

When life begins to feel challenging and overwhelming, it can be difficult to create space for calm and stillness. We may even seek to avoid the quiet altogether, fearing the thoughts that arise or the emotions we keep buried beneath the surface. It often feels easier to distract ourselves from our thoughts or to numb and detach from the challenging emotions that inevitably emerge. Therapy can provide us with a space to turn inward and deeply connect with ourselves, allowing us to bring awareness to our patterns, better understand our needs, move towards acceptance, or even work towards change.

As a husband and father, I understand the challenges we can encounter in our most intimate circle. I am wholly invested in couple and relationship-centred therapy. The pandemic taught me there is no reason to restrict my specialized couples and relationship focused practice to my postal code. Presenting issues impacting the couples relationship include: past trauma; infidelity; communication; addiction; parenting; life stressors; sex and intimacy; ADHD; anxiety and depression. I offer limited slots for individuals wanting an emotionally-focused approach, or wanting to do their own work before engaging in couples therapy.
