Areas of specialization: Compulsive sexual behaviour/sexual addiction, pornography addiction/compulsive pornography use, sexuality/intimacy, men's issues, and sexual abuse.
Many men experience powerlessness over their compulsive behaviour, thoughts, and emotions and feel "stuck". Shame, guilt, anger, isolation, and pain have become the driving forces within your life. Relationships with the people you care about the most, including yourself, have been impacted by your behaviour. You have started to question whether you are a good father, son, or partner. No matter how hard you try or what you do, it seems like you will never be free from the mental, physical, financial, and interpersonal effects of your actions. You are not alone, and we are here to help support you on this journey.

I have a background in the education system, child welfare, settlement services with immigrants and refugees and survivors of sexual abuse.
I believe seeking supports through counselling is an act of bravery and courage and as such I consider it an honour for anyone to confide in me their struggles, hopes and aspirations. My intention is to simply be human with individuals and help guide them along their journey. Therapy is not a fix it all solution, it takes time, practice and most importantly a genuine human connection.

The clients I serve in my practice are women, people of colour, indigenous communities and lgbt2sq identified people. You’ve been in therapy before and although you’ve seen results you aren’t yet at the place you want to be. Feelings of stress, anxiety, stuckness and depression are familiar to you. You’ve been going in circles in your relationships and your career and now you’re ready to dig deeper. Your core beliefs keep pulling you back into old patterns like people pleasing, controlling behaviours, co-dependency, and difficulty prioritizing yourself and identifying your needs.

Trauma, anxiety and depression can leave you feeling overwhelmed and isolated. Therapy can offer you a better way forward. My specialty is working with adults who are survivors of childhood abuse, trauma or neglect. I help my clients live more in the present that they want, rather than focus on fears from the past or worries about the future. As an experienced therapist, I've seen that when people can safely address the traumas in their life, they reduce their anxiety, depression, difficulty with relationships and trust, low self-esteem and overwhelming emotions, among other things.

Maybe you find yourself worrying about the future, doubting your capability to cope with whatever life is about to throw at you next. Perhaps you can even see repetitive behaviours that keep you stuck, but you can't find a way to change these ingrained habits. The degree to which these things effect everyone lies on a continuum. Some struggle with low self-esteem, others depression and anxiety, and trauma can lead to severe changes in many of these areas.
