First Step Men’s Therapy offers an affordable therapy program designed to help men across Ontario get the support they need – without breaking the bank. Whether you are a student, in between work, or just finding it difficult to pay your bills – we have created a space for you to learn, heal, and grow. Many men wait too long for help – it doesn’t have to be this way!

As a compassionate guide through the uncertain seas of recurring anxiety, relationship hurdles, and stress overload, I specialize in aiding men who grapple with the elusive threads of connection and life purpose.

Many men, at times, feel adrift in the currents of daily life, questioning the direction of their journey. I’m here to provide support and navigation tools, helping you find calm within the chaos and reconnect with the purpose that propels you forward.

Drawing upon my extensive career and educational journey, I specialize in steering men toward the realms of happiness and inner peace while adeptly navigating the distinctive challenges entrenched in their personal and professional spheres. My therapeutic approach is meticulously crafted to align with your unique needs and aspirations, guaranteeing a customized and impactful therapeutic journey.

I use a variety of therapeutic techniques tailored to individual client needs, including person-centered therapy, solution-focused behavior therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and elements from narrative and psychodynamic theories. This flexible, integrative approach allows for a more personalized and effective therapy experience.
