Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
Affordable Therapy Intern
As an intern therapist, I specialize in helping men overcome a range of struggles, including but not limited to:
Addiction: I have been a SMART™ facilitator and have worked in a variety of backgrounds, including an addiction treatment center.
Emotional Resilience: Navigating and managing emotions in a healthy and constructive way.
Relationship Dynamics: Enhancing communication and intimacy within relationships.
Workplace/Career Stress: Developing strategies to thrive in high-pressure work environments.
Identity and Self-Exploration: Unpacking questions of identity and purpose.
Anxiety and Depression: Providing tools to manage and overcome these common challenges.
Grief and Loss: Supporting you on your journey to healing, acceptance, and processing life's difficult experiences.
In working with me, a focus will be on your strengths and how to leverage those strengths to help overcome whatever challenges you may be experiencing. I believe that everyone has the capability to do great things and become the best version of themselves as defined by themselves. We all have greatness in us, and everyone needs support to bring it out!
I believe in a holistic approach that considers the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of well-being. Drawing from a range of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive-behavioral techniques, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused approaches.
Understanding the stigma often associated with seeking help, I strive to create a welcoming environment where men feel understood and supported. I believe that therapy is a strength, not a weakness, and encourage men to take proactive steps towards their mental health journey.
There is a Sioux Indian saying: “The longest journey you will make in your life is from your head to your heart”. I would be honoured to be part of that journey with you.
