Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.

Life is full of demands and responsibilities that can feel overwhelming. Emotions and negative thoughts can interfere with you feeling and performing at your best. You want something to change but untangling these patterns seems too difficult. Mental health doesn’t have to be this hard. When you learn to harness your emotions and thoughts they can begin to work with you and not against you, allowing you to take ownership of your life. I believe this resilience is a skill we all have the capacity to acquire. My goal is to make quality mental health therapy simple and effective, so you can live a happier and more productive life.

Since I can remember I have always had a heart to see people living the life they were meant to live and witness that potential in those that choose to work with me. I have been led to work in many parts of the world from India, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Malawi and right here in Toronto and the Durham Region directly with underprivileged, homeless or at-risk youth, survivors of human trafficking, people from different developmental stages and life transitions including seniors in long-term care. Sometimes things happen in life and we do not know how to unpack everything ourselves.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in L1N or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these L1N counsellors provide counselling for self harming in L1N. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in L1N, psychologists, and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in L1N or treatment for self harming.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L1N you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L1N and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L1N or family therapy in L1N.
