My approach to counselling will help you get at the heart of troubling issues. My interests are broad and my approach is strengths-based. Counselling areas include (but aren't limited to!): grief - including complicated grief, loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, infertility, family systems, relationships, separation/divorce, transitions, and support for families of children with special needs. You and I co-create a customized plan specific to you, the client. I will check in with you often to ask about what is working and what you would like to do more of.

Life can be hard. You may be living each day with anxiety about the future, or feeling down about your past. Maybe you are experiencing a challenging relationship or struggling to regulate difficult emotions such as worry, anger, or sadness. Perhaps you feel stuck, or have trouble accepting yourself. All of these issues are part of the shared human experience. They are a normal part of life...and can be managed successfully when you have the necessary resources.

*Accepting new clients* Hi there, my name is Jonathan. Helping people work on the challenges they want to work on so that they can become a better version of themselves is my work. By using an integrative approach, I support people by helping them discover and explore practical solutions for their life circumstances and their relationships. What works best for you is what is important, not following a set of instructions or trying to fit you into a prescribed way of life. Counselling is about working together to improve well-being and focusing our efforts to do so, so let's work together.

Please note I am currently only providing on-line counselling via Skype and Zoom. I bring to my practice a welcoming and friendly personal style that puts clients at ease allowing them to communicate their needs and goals within a safe non-judgmental atmosphere. I worked in many clinical health care settings before venturing into private practice, which has brought into my work a well rounded breadth of clinical experience, including a wide array of therapeutic approaches, that I have successfully integrated while working with with hundreds of clients over the past 26 plus years.

It's perfectly normal to want to avoid pain, including emotional pain. You may have become an expert at shutting out those painful emotions to make it through your life—maybe disconnecting completely from those feelings. That’s an adaptive response to emotional overwhelm, and it’s how many of us get through the daily challenges of work, school and social life. Yet that pain will find a way to make itself known one way or another. Counselling can help you to change the way you respond to whatever it is you’re carrying so that you can better identify and attend to your needs.

Are you suffering with depression or anxiety? Are you feeling like your life is falling apart? Are you struggling with unrealistic fears and worry? You may have suffered childhood trauma, emotional neglect, or other more recent trauma. If you feel stuck in a rut, and find yourself repeating the same old unhealthy patterns, I can help you to make positive change, rapidly transform negative, limiting beliefs, and move forward into a more fulfilling, joyful, and satisfying experience of life.

The effects of trauma are many, and can feel overwhelming and unbearable. If you are experiencing post-traumatic stress responses such as, anxiety, depression, unhealthy or abusive relationships, substance misuse, self-harm or suicidal ideation, you are not alone. Many mental health symptoms are automatic responses and attempts to cope with trauma. These adaptations don't always serve us in the best way. When trauma can't be processed in the moment, it is often held in the body and we can become "stuck". A Somatic approach to counselling may help you move forward and heal from the effects of trauma in an embodied way.

You aim to live in a way that doesn’t let anyone else down but are noticing that in doing so, you are letting yourself down and your own needs are not being met. You feel conflicted and anxious because “don’t good people always show up for others? Then, why do I feel hollow, lost, and unfulfilled?” You are noticing that something is off-balance in your life, and you are curious about what is it that YOU like, want, need, and desire. You wonder, “could it be possible to live a life that aligns with my true self?”

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in V8P are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in V8P then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in V8P, or Child Psychologists in V8P.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like V8P psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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 V8P 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.
