CCDC, Registered Psychotherapist
First Responders are in a unique position that can make it more difficult to find appropriate support for their well-being and that of their family; especially when it comes to mental health.
The very integrity and sensitivity that makes you good at your job can get in the way of caring for yourself and reaching out when you need it.
I am a registered Psychotherapist with 36 years in private practice working with adults, couples and families.
I have achieved a reputation of helping people who are new to therapy or just haven’t been able to click with a therapist and get the help they wanted.
I have experience and specialized training for working with First Responders, particularly OPP and police and some of the unique situations that you face as an officer.
I don’t have all the answers and I have not experienced the exact things you have, but I know about how trauma affects us as human beings and I have had my share of challenges and trying times in my 73 years.
I want to encourage you to give yourself a chance to address and heal, or at least mitigate, the stress and disruption that inevitably comes with your job as you serve your community.
Your benefits will cover your sessions so what do you have to lose? Most likely you and your family and friends will be so relieved and thankful when you reach out for help.
We will do this together. You are the expert on your life, but I have professional experience and training that you can avail yourself of to address some of the things you have kept inside for way too long.
Give me a call. If you like we can chat for a bit to see if you feel comfortable with me before booking a session. Hope to hear from you soon.
