I have over twenty years’ experience working with children, youth, adults and families from diverse cultures. I specialise in providing treatment that specifically addresses individual and family needs, strengths, challenges and obstacles. My approach is strength-based, trauma-informed and collaborative. Most problems are caused by many overlapping factors. Therapy usually involves exploring the big picture and developing practical and constructive ways to support well-being and change. Sometimes it is helpful to explore ways in which past experiences and relationships are affecting current experiences and behaviour.

My purpose and my passion is to help you fully remember who and what you truly are! The beautiful, perfect soul you are, prior to all the programming and conditioning that's had you believing that you're just "not good enough". This "not good enough" nonsense, is nothing more than an indoctrinated/brainwashed belief. It is at the root cause of all pain and trauma. It underlies all of humanity's suffering. It is indeed, the real pandemic on this planet. It has infected entirely all of us. It is the greatest, most ridiculous most asinine lie that has ever been sold to humanity! My job and my joy is to help you heal from this insanity.

Dr. Craig Norris primarily works with individuals who have experienced some form of trauma. Many of his clients seek help from him due to troublesome symptoms such as poor sleep, nightmares, mood issues, intrusive thoughts, high startle response, suicidal thoughts, and problems with irritability and anger. Some of his clients have also turned to alcohol or drugs to cope with their symptoms and some have experienced increased conflict with loved ones, family, and friends. Dr. Norris's clients reach out to him for help because they have decided that they want things to change for the better.

For 28 years I have enjoyed working with individuals, couples and families. I believe in using methods that are grounded in theory and research. My goal is to help people help themselves. I view people as resourceful. My role is to facilitate them in accessing and expressing their thoughts and feelings. Self-awareness enables people to access their own resources, allowing them to live the life they want to live. I see myself as a resource for people who want confidential help to deal with personal issues and I strive hard to deliver effective productive service in a timely manner.

As a parent, you are the one who knows your child best. If you are reading this, I trust that you have been doing your best all along--you are just temporarily lost about how to relate with or help your child. May be you have been observing one or more of these behaviours in your child: aggression, anger, lethargy, or anxiety. The list could go on. You have tried to seek advice from the teachers or other parents; you research parenting advice or strategies. Somehow, your child continues to struggle. You are exhausted from trying to cope and being supportive.

Listening to my clients' personal stories is both an honour and a privilege; feeling heard and understood is often their first significant step towards change. Mostly what I've found is that in my 30 years in the field of psychology and mental health, most of us can work through most of life's little challenges. When you have a challenge that you can't quite get past on your own - There's Counselling for That!

I'm passionate about helping my clients overcome issues such as anxiety, depression, and overwhelm so they can live a more vibrant and fulfilling life. They come to me struggling with difficult emotions, and feeling stuck, unmotivated, and unsure how to move forward. I work with them to find the reasons behind these feelings, and then offer tools and practical strategies to help them develop a more positive mindset. It's non-negotiable that I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for them to open up about whatever is on their minds as together we navigate the confusion and uncertainty that life can sometimes cause.

As humans, we get to experience the vastness and variety of life: the highs, the lows, and everything in between. At times, however, we can get stuck in the depths: feeling anxious, hopeless, overwhelmed. We can often feel depressed and doubt our capabilities or self-worth, listening to the harsh inner critic inside. If we have experienced something traumatic, we may struggle with sleeping, regulating our emotions, flashbacks, or experience dissociation and unwanted thoughts. No matter how far into the darkest depths you have been, there is always hope. If you just swim up a bit, a whole new world opens up to you.

Hey, welcome! Question for you: what's making you deal with everything life throws at you alone? Do you want to be isolated with the problems you experience if you don't have to be? Maybe you're trying to break free from deeply-rooted self-doubt, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and other distressing emotions like loneliness. Many folks we work with have also experienced histories of trauma (not just trauma with a capital T) and grew up in invalidating childhood environments. In working together, we can rewrite and co-create sustainable systems of thought so that you can move towards who you want to be and actually embody it.

Are you or a loved one struggling with alcohol or drug related problems? Addiction disorders isolate individuals from family, loved ones, community, and ultimately themselves. Many individuals may be fearful or have uncertainty reaching out for help. Be assured, I bring a relaxed non-judgemental approach to the therapeutic relationship and specialize in working with adults experiencing difficulty with addiction and related co-occurring disorders. I have worked in the addiction and mental health field since 2008 and have held clinical and management positions in inpatient, outpatient, and continuing care settings.

When painful thoughts and emotions show up, it can be like trying to find our way through a fog. It’s hard to live the way we want to when anxiety makes our mind spin in circles, when shame hangs on us like a dead weight, and when our inner voice is constantly questioning and criticizing. As painful as they are, these feelings are here to show us that something needs to change. By listening to them and working through them together, we can clear the path to a life that is manageable and fulfilling. In my practice, I work with adults—both individuals and couples—to help them find that path.

My approach to individual therapy combines CBT with concepts including mindfulness, attachment, meaning-making/purpose, and often an exploration of values and beliefs to address mood and create a more fulfilling life. I work with individuals (8+), couples, and families. Read more on my website where I go into detail. You want to thrive. I can help.

I believe that people deserve a place to feel seen, heard, and supported. In our sessions, I strive to provide a non-judgmental and open space where you can express yourself and explore your inner world so that we can create change together. While it is true that counselling can be challenging, I also believe it can and should include humour, hope, and be a comfortable place for you to learn and grow. If you are in a place where you are ready to make a change, I will support you to address concerns such as anxiety, depression, ADHD/ADD, parenting, interpersonal and relationship challenges, grief and loss, trauma, and careers.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in V5M?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in V5M specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
