How do you define manhood when there’s no manual? What do you do when you want to be a good partner but feel like you keep mis-stepping? As men, sometimes we need a space to talk about what manhood means to us. We need a space to feel seen, heard and validated. We need a space to talk about life’s successes, challenges, and fears. We also need a space for accountability. I am passionate about supporting men who struggle with anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues. My goal is to create a space where men can learn the connections between their thoughts, feelings and actions. If this resonates with you, tap in. Let’s work.

Waitlist for new clients
I love working with motivated clients who are ready for change. I am extremely health oriented and feel that mental changes happen when we are taking care of ourselves both mentally and physically. I love giving people the space to be themselves and work through issues in a non-judgmental environment (so they can start recognizing their own strengths and power). I believe in my clients, and my ultimate goal is to help people believe in themselves.

In this moment, it feels like life has hit a standstill—be it in school, work, or relationships.

Together, we can navigate these feelings, uncover hidden strengths, and rebuild connections, fostering a path toward personal growth and renewed fulfillment.

Sports Performance Therapists

How does sports psychology work?

Sports psychology helps athletes identify and overcome challenges, such as perfectionism or a fear of failure, and improve key mental skills, such as confidence or concentration. By applying principles and techniques from psychology, such as goal-setting, visualization, positive self-talk, and emotion regulation, sports psychologists help athletes improve their performance on the field and their well-being overall.

How long does treatment for a sports-related problem take?

The duration of sports psychology treatment depends on the athlete’s individual challenges, goals, the complexity of the interventions used, and even on the length of the season. A performance anxiety issue may be treated with a short-term treatment, like Cognitive behavioural therapy, while issues such as depression, substance abuse, or severe anxiety may require longer-term treatments.

How effective is treatment for sports performance problems?

Sports psychology has been shown to improve performance and help athletes manage their emotions. Sports psychology can be effective in boosting performance, team dynamics, and injury rehabilitation. Over the past decade, nearly every professional sports team in every major sport has added a sports psychologist to its staff. Many colleges have done the same, and even some high school programs have done the same. Olympic hopefuls may consult with sports psychologists starting in elementary school.

What are the limitations of sports psychology?

Sports psychology may have several limitations. Every athlete is unique and may respond differently to sports psychology treatments. Therapy can help an athlete reach their potential; it can help athletes cope with injury and pain, but it cannot change the physical limitations that may be affecting an athlete’s performance.
