Thinking of starting counseling?
You have made that difficult decision but now comes the part of finding a good therapist. Many people are shy to ask friends and your doctor may not know of anyone; professional associations can give you names but no recommendations. Reading websites, calling therapists, asking questions, hearing the voice and getting your sense if you can work with this counselor is the next step.
It is very important to feel both safe and comfortable with your
counselor as well having confidence in their professional qualifications. Both
the therapist’s personality and their approach need to fit your needs
and objectives. I hope this website can help you in this process.

First a little about my own professional qualifications:
I have 20 years of experience as a therapist, working both with EAP (Employee Assistance Programs) and in private practice. I obtained a BA from University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA), BSW from McGill University (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) and MSW from University of Montreal (Montreal, Quebec, Canada).
I have training in relaxation techniques, art therapy, CIS (crisis intervention) and psychotherapy (cognitive therapy).
In counseling we will explore together the many facets of your personality,
looking at both the problems stopping you from gaining what you want
in life and also the good qualities which are so easy to forget when
you are going through a difficult time.
