You're a man who keep things in. You've realized you can't go on like this though. You need to move forward even though you feel like you're in quick-sand. Talking is a start. 

Know that most of us grow up not knowing how to deal with emotions. This may have looked like not talking about them at all or given the message to suck it up. That doesn't make feelings go away though. When we don't deal with things, it shows up in other ways. It shows up as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger, or physical health symptoms. 
If you're at a place where you know something needs to shift, reach out. We can get some tools to improve your mood and better manage emotions and relationships.
Common themes in my practice for individual therapy:
  • Isolating/ Keeping people at a distance
  • Difficulty sharing with others/ Expressing emotions
  • Men's mental health
  • Confidence/ Being too critical of yourself
  • Anger management challenges
  • Wanting a better relationship with your spouse or children
  • Stress management
  • Low mood/ Depression

 Common themes for couples counselling:
  • Wanting to be more confident before a marriage commitment
  • There has been a hard life transition that has taken a toll on the relationship ex. children
  • Communication is just not working. You don't want to always be fighting.
  • Feeling so disconnected from your partner, and it just keeps getting more and more distant.

Online therapy only through a secure video platform for individuals & couples 18+ living in Ontario.
