I’m a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), and the founder of Men Therapy Toronto, the first counseling center in Canada focused exclusively on the health and well-being of men. I am also a trained EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapist which is an evidence-based modality used in treating trauma. At Men Therapy Toronto we see men who come in for a wide range of concerns. We specialize in men working through concerns with porn and sex addiction, childhood sexual abuse, anger management, career concerns and childhood trauma.

In my therapy practice, I deeply understand the frustration and confusion that come with phrases like “I am so frustrated! What is going on in my mind?” If this resonates with you, know that you are not alone. My commitment is to create a safe, empathetic environment where your thoughts and feelings are not just heard, but deeply understood and validated.

 

Together, we will navigate your inner world, easing the overwhelming thoughts that can feel isolating and confining. In our sessions, whether in-person or online, we will explore your unique challenges in a warm, inviting atmosphere, gently guiding you towards a journey of personal growth and emotional resilience. Your struggles are real, and you matter immensely. If you’re ready to begin this transformative path, reach out to me. Our collaborative work will focus on creating a space where your voice leads the way, where we share the goal of your well-being and inner peace.

I am a neurodiversity affirming therapist and counsellor specializing in ADHD and Level 1 Autism. As someone who came to understand my own neurodiversity in my 20s, I am familiar with the unique trials and tribulations that arise throughout the lives of neurodivergent people (in addition to the often exceptional capabilities that can be hugely advantageous in many facets of life). I take an eclectic approach to therapy, informed by Person-Centered Therapy, Parts Integration, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to address challenges relating to procrastination, avoidance, general and social anxiety, depression, screen addictions, traumatic brain injury, and men’s mental health.
