How do we know what works – and why? I believe that most people can ultimately provide the answers for themselves; however, it may take some exploration. I therefore use strategies that are evidence-based and research-driven, to help clients build resilience and develop effective coping strategies.
A counsellor is someone who is there to provide guidance and support in times of unmanageable stress. While our sessions may draw from various counselling approaches, including CBT, SFBT, and Narrative Therapy, the client ultimately provides the backdrop – and puts in the work – that leads to lasting change.

I have worked successfully with a lot of men in my practice. I understand how hard it can be for men to seek help. At the same time I know from experience that there’s tremendous benefit involved for those men who take that first step. My counselling approach is about compassion and non-judgement. Whatever is happening for you will be accepted and faced together. From a stance of respect and an underlying core belief that you have the wisdom within you to overcome your challenges, I will support you in recognizing and engaging powerful resources both within you and around you. Counselling theories and methodologies I use include Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

It’s tough to be a man. I know. I’ve been one all of my life. Whether it be emotional or sexual intimacy issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and the over-reliance on career, substances, money or sex, men can get lost in a thousand different ways. For 36 years now I have been counselling men and know this territory inside and out.

For 18+ years I have assisted adults struggling with mental health issues, substance use, trauma, anger, grief, as well as isolation and disconnection. I use a collaborative approach with clients to develop treatment plans, and goal setting. You know your experience — your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours — better than anyone else. I incorporate mindfulness into my therapy practice to aid in anxiety reduction, productivity, self-awareness and confidence. I have studied and include in my practice other approaches such as cognitive behaviour therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, secular Buddhism, narrative, Imago (for effective couples’ communication) and emotion-focused therapy.

With my clients, I create a confidential, non-judgmental and culturally sensitive space, where we work together to bring about the desired change in your life. While I have the training, you have had the experience. Therefore, we explore and brainstorm solutions together with my professional guidance and your feedback.
I use psych-education combined with a solution focused and goal oriented approach to counselling, while taking into consideration the unique attributes and needs of my client’s. I believe that change, although difficult, is possible with the right tools, effective goal setting and appropriate guidance.

I provide counselling services in French and English for individuals in matters related to anxiety, depression, life transition, gender, grief, loss and suicide. My practice is founded on the belief that you are not the “problems” present in your life, and that, above all, you are greater than the sum of the events in your life. As my counselling approach is strength-based, Solution-Focused and Narrative-rooted, our conversations will identify, explore and honour the big and small ways you defy and resist “problems”, while re-authoring a deeper and richer version of your life and journey.

I enjoy working with men to explore their personal narratives and how these stories have influenced their sense of identity and emotional wellbeing. I offer a unique multi-cultural perspective, influenced by work experience and living abroad. This mindset paired with a trauma-informed practice allows me to create a safe space for therapeutic change. I enjoy working with men with diverse experiences and identities from all walks of life to explore how internal narratives may be impacting mental wellbeing. My goal is to create an environment that feels safe and inspires growth.

My work is relational, emotion-focused, and experiential. Relational means that I strive to make a unique and genuine connection with those I work with. Emotion-focused means that I help people pay attention to old emotional patterns that may no longer be serving them. And experiential means that I don’t just talk to people about changing these patterns, I offer experiences of forming new and preferred patterns that are conducive to their therapy goals.
