I am an anger management, domestic violence, family mediator, marriage and family therapist, social worker, psychotherapist, art psychotherapist, trauma (EMDR) and addiction therapist.
My focus of my practice is that of relationship counselling. Relationship to self, others and the world is extremely important for healthy living. When something gets in the way of good relationship then sometimes it is really important to have a third parties insight into what might be going wrong and how to make changes to overcome what might be standing in the way. I see children, teens, individuals, couples, and families. We offer: anger management, domestic violence, relapse prevention, weight loss, anxiety, depression, conflict resolution, trauma resolution and Christian counselling programs.

I believe we all dream to live lives of more and lives of less. More: happiness, peace, achieving meaningful goals, and joy in relationships. The opposite is also true, we seek lives with less. Less: stress, negative coping, anger, and disconnection. Are you one of millions of new Canadians trapped between 2 worlds? Is it time to create your own life? Do you experience anxiety, depression, or relationship issues that never seem to change; growing up "fine but feeling empty", or loveless parenting, do you want to change how you parent your own child--all of which can hold you back or instill panic. Small steps can feel overwhelming.

The individuals and families that I support, experience feelings of overwhelm and find themselves ‘stuck’ in patterns or strategies that hinder their well being. Avoidance, anger outbursts, intense worrying, controlling tendencies, substance use, and disconnecting from ourselves and the people we care for, are just some of the strategies we use to cope with life’s stress. We can become deeply stuck in these patterns even at the expense of our own well-being, and/or inter-personal relationships. Luckily, our brains and bodies are capable of great change. Restoring ourselves to a more optimal way of being, is possible.

Anger Management Counsellors

How long does therapy take for anger management?

Treatment duration depends on the person’s specific challenges and circumstances. There are treatments for anger problems that are shorter and more goal-oriented, like Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), which can last weeks to months. Others, like Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) may last between six months and a year, while a more intensive treatment, like psychodynamic therapy, is open-ended, and clients may see their therapist for a year or longer.

How do you know if you need therapy for anger management?

Everyone gets mad from time to time. But when angry outbursts become frequent and cause damage to relationships, whether at home or in the office, it may be a good time to look into therapy. A therapist can assess where a client’s anger may be coming from, suggest strategies for averting angry outbursts, and help a client create a plan to become a calmer version of themselves.

Is there medication for anger management?

Medications do exist that help people mitigate the feeling of anger, but these are reserved for people with anger-related psychiatric disorders, such as intermittent explosive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, or in some cases borderline personality disorder. In these cases, antidepressant medications may be prescribed to help with the client’s symptoms. In most cases of anger management, however, talk therapy is the recommended treatment, along with lifestyle changes where relevant.

What’s the best way to encourage someone to seek help for anger issues?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual’s behavior affected either themselves or others should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
