When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Taking the first step towards counselling can seem overwhelming when faced with issues that prevent you from living the life you had imagined. I believe that one has the courage and compassion to break that cycle and move towards healing.

If you are dealing with depression, anxiety, parent-teen conflict, trauma, separation, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship conflict, know that change, growth and healing are possible.

Either way, I want to create a safe and productive therapeutic environment for clients to feel comfortable in talking about their lives. I want to collaborate with clients to help them glean a better understanding of their lives, and come up with ways to make it through their day feeling better and more confident in their actions.

Sometimes, life can get downright challenging. We have an idea of what we want our life to look like, but problems such as anxiety, depression, or perhaps the effects of traumatic experiences get in the way of our ability to build the life we want for ourselves. It not only affects ourselves, but also our relationships with the ones we love most. It can feel very discouraging, and often, lonely. Thankfully it doesn't have to be this way for long. This is where counselling comes in, and this is where you can make the changes you have longed to see in your life in a safe and supportive space.

Self Esteem Counsellors
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in V9R and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in V9R or for a V9R self esteem counsellor, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem counsellors in V9R, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem therapists in V9R. They can help with counselling for self esteem in V9R or self esteem counselling and treatment for self esteem.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in V9R are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in V9R you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in V9R and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in V9R or family therapy in V9R.
