I see adults, children, adolescents, and families, and work with many emotional and behavioural issues including depression, anxiety, ADHD, self-harming, ODD, aggression, childhood trauma, autism, and school refusal.
Everything can be broken down into small and manageable steps, and even small shifts can produce significant change and offer much needed relief. If you or your loved one (child, adolescent, or partner) seems to be stuck in repeating behaviours, or patterns that are stretching your patience and energy reserves, you've come to the right place. I'm here to help shoulder some of the emotional weight you've been carrying, and to let you know there is hope, tangible tools and strategies, and positive change on the other side of bravely stepping into this process.

When you dreamed about getting pregnant and having kids, you hoped it would be an easy process. You’d conceive quickly, have a healthy baby, your body would work as you expected, you’d feel in control of the birth process. You expected that parenting would feel intuitive, you would know what to do to meet your child’s needs, the act of parenting would bring you and your partner closer. The reality is that conception, birth and parenting can be full of regret, disappointment, and confusion. Unmet expectations around conception, birth and parenting can leave you feeling disconnected, full of grief and carrying a heavy load.

Self-Harming 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 Toronto or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Toronto counsellors provide counselling for self harming in Toronto. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in Toronto, psychologists, and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in Toronto or treatment for self harming.
