Announcement icon Need support during these challenging times? Feel free to contact me about online counselling for adults in ON (sliding scale available).
Life is full of challenges – but you don’t have to face them alone. In counselling, you have the opportunity to work with someone who will help you find solutions to the challenges in your life by assessing your needs and strengths, exploring possible options with you, providing you with information and resources, and supporting you with developing coping strategies. In my practice, I apply the knowledge and skills gained from my education and ongoing learning while also drawing on my lived experience as a queer guy who has struggled with challenges related to mental health, trauma, family conflict, and other experiences.
During sessions, I use techniques from solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and dialectical behavioural therapy to help clients gain insight about themselves and use skills to effectively respond to challenges related to anxiety, depression, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, relationships, living with HIV, and other experiences.
As someone who has accessed counselling/therapy, I know it can be hard to reach out for help. When you feel ready, I encourage you to connect with me for an initial consultation, and we can work together from there, one step at a time, to meet you where you're at. I try my best to respond to calls and emails within 24 hours.
