"Your emotional health is #1. Clients know I've listened. I'm a friendly professional who specializes in relationship issues. You'll have someone truly dedicated & caring during difficult times. I gently, yet quickly, guide people back to their innate health (predating traumas). I share perspectives in a frank & down-to-earth manner. I also talk a lot; I'm not a therapist who sits, nods his head and say, "uh, huh," for most of the session. I've decided to meet with a small number of clients weekly. I don't believe good therapy is provided any other way."

" Is the inside of your head feeling like an uncomfortable place to be? Working with a mental health professional can create a meaningful shift. Sometimes the harsh things we say to ourselves and our unconscious patterns can leave us trapped in a cycle of just coping with our suffering and trying to survive the day. Is the way you've learned to cope/survive keeping you stuck or moving you away from who you want to be and how you want to live? Learning to see yourself, your life, and your patterns clearly can create opportunities for healing, growth, and more meaningful relationships. "

"Making peace. Letting go. Finding balance. We are all aware, when distressed, how much better it would feel if we could just find the way to get there. And yet, trauma, anxiety, depression, negative self-image, and difficult relationships tend to persist, and even strengthen over time. Psychotherapy is a process of compassionate inquiry into the foundations of ourselves, our beliefs, and the impact of our experiences. Rather than focusing on external changes, psychotherapy helps us to notice the interface between unconscious patterns and feelings, and our current reactions and behaviours, allowing us to shift from the inside out."

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counselling) Counsellors
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in B3K can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counsellors in B3K help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, B3K Counsellors work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in B3K all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good B3K academic counsellor or school counsellor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in B3K are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in B3K you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in B3K and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in B3K or family therapy in B3K.
