Symptoms of Stress and Stress ManagementEveryone has the potential to suffer from problems, such as dealing with mental stress. My commitment is to help you and your family feel better and to be able to manage the stressors of daily life.

I know it is difficult at times to take the first step and ask for help. Being ashamed of disclosing personal problems, fear of being stigmatized, shame, thinking that sharing your pain to others means being vulnerable are some of the reasons why people delay seeking counselling.

Counselling and psychotherapy help those suffering from emotional issues to gain control and create positive change in their personal and professional lives. From dealing with mental stress to handling depression and anxiety, addictions, transitions and other obstaclesI can help you overcome your life challenges using evidence based treatment methodshome- mental health

Depression, Anxiety and Stress Management

Are you feeling depressed?

Unfortunately, depression is one of the most common mental health conditions in Canada today. And it is a real medical condition that presents with physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioural symptoms. When a person is depressed he or she feels intense and inescapable feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, sadness, emptiness, anger and despair. These are very different from the normal ups and downs of everyday life. While different people experience depression in different ways, all require professional counselling services in order to cope and overcome these challenges.

 Are you experiencing ongoing anxiety?

Everyone experiences some form of anxiety at one point or another, but anxiety as a condition is when these feelings become debilitation and frequent. Anxiety is marked by excessive and persisten worry, fear, nervousness irritability and agitation. You tend to feel apprehension all the time; you imagine the worst scenarios in your mind. Sometimes, you may even suffer a panic attack and you feel as if you were experiencing a heart attack! It is not uncommon to feel depression and anxiety at the same time as they are often linked.  

What is stress?

Stress is a normal physical reaction that becomes problematic when it happens too often; it erodes your ability to handle your mood, your confidence, your self-esteem, your relationships, and life in general. If you have experienced depression, anxiety or stress, learn more about dealing with mental stress and other ways you can take control today.

Addictions

Do I have addiction?

An addiction is an overpowering dependence on a physical or abstract thing or activity that can consume you. It can be alcohol, a drug -prescribed or not- the internet, shopping, gambling, sex, etc. You an uncontrollable need to use the substance or the behaviour without being able to control yourself despite the consequences. Are you struggling the following addictions?

  • Internet addiction
  • Online gaming addiction
  • Online gambling addiction
  • Cybersex addiction and online affairs
  • Compulsive shopping and online auction addiction

Other Issues

Are you an expatriate?

An expatriate is a person who resides in a country other than his or her country of origin or upbringing. As a heavily multicultural nation, Canada is home to many expatriates who often have difficulty adjusting with life in a widely-varied environment. It can be difficult for some to adjust to diverse societies, especially if they are expats in a country much different from their own.

Treatments

I use 3 main treatments for stress, depression and anxiety, addictions and other conditions that can help you create positive changes.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT, is a treatment that helps you manage negative thought processes and positively impact your mood and emotions.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) helps manage depression by incorporating the notion of “mindfulness”, or, focusing your full attention on the present moment.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

The EMDR approach uses an ordinary body mechanic – rapid eye movement – to help deal with negative emotions, traumatic memories, and other thoughts and feelings that may be interfering with a normal, healthy mood.

 What is good mental health?

Family TRG

Good mental health, is finding balance in our social, emotional and psychological areas of our life.  Good mental health is when we are able to function fully, experiencing healthy emotions, having gratifying relationships, and when we are able to cope with changes and unforeseen life disappointments.

Psychotherapy, Counselling, Coaching, Consulting

In my private practice, I offer individual counselling to young adults, adults and elderly people. I also provide therapy to couples and families. I welcome the diversity that clients may bring; thus, every ethnic background, religious beliefs, family composition and sexual orientation is respected.

I believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness which integrates the various dimensions of a human being – physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, cultural and social.

My office is in Toronto [The Beach Village] and I also offer distance counselling to those who are geographically distant from my office.
