The client who's most suited to working with myself is someone who's interested in making changes in their lives and will bring their honest selves into therapy. It's someone who's struggling with challenges surrounding managing ADHD, anger, emotional regulation and addictive behaviours such as video game use. It's someone who wants to be in therapy with an individual who has gone through similar struggles and knows how to best empathize with, and assist them in working through their issues. Males - age 12-30 who meet those criteria would be a fantastic match for therapy with myself.

Deciding to seek help is a powerful step toward better mental health. Through my experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families, I understand that difficulties may arise regardless of one's age or phase of life. From life challenges to transition periods (e.g., changing careers, schools, relationships), to traumatic experiences, it can be difficult to make sense of our selves or our directions. I am proud to support clients from all walks of life (inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, races, cultures, and relationship types) in achieving their own unique vision of success.

People require help with various issues at some point of their lifes. It could be difficulty making a decision, relationship problems, dissatisfaction with career, financial warries, losses, illness, or injury. Regardless of the magnitude of the problem it is often beneficial to discuss your problem with a professional who may help you to see the issue from a different perspective and to arrive to a satisfactory solution. Some problems require numerous sessions, but sometimes even one or few sessions result in improved mood and self-confidence and help to gain insights that could lead to desired changes.
