About Me

I am well versed in several counseling techniques and have a compassionate approachable demeanor. My counseling experience is above par and I am also organized with an attention to detail. Clients warm up to me quickly and I enjoy helping them reach goals and learn new thinking patterns to view life in a more positive manner. My therapeutic style incorporates expert listening, positive feedback, direct guidance, and creating an environment where you will feel comfortable to discuss your personal thoughts and feelings. Therapy is a safe place to discuss things that cannot be shared with family, friends, or colleagues. It can also be used for personal growth, increasing emotional intelligence, developing coping skills, and creating positive change in your life. We all have strengths that we can develop, as well as challenges from which we can grow. Each crisis in our lives is an opportunity for healing and growth.

Dr. Craig is an amazing, down to earth human being. He puts his patients at ease by his funny & kind attitude with an ability to connect easily. A patient listener who always ends the session by saying he's always there for us and that he can be contacted by any means necessary.
He has his way of zeroing in on the main issue(s) and helped me move forward from there. He never looks at the time till he knows that the session's been fruitful. He's the guy I wish I had started out with.

Dr Rice is an amazing therapist. He has the ability to be fair and see both sides of the picture and can give you alternatives to your dilemma. I have found that Craig will even follow up with a note if you haven’t booked a further appointment.

I have used his services three different times. He has helped me with the extreme changes in my life. Last year I had succumbed to a horrific health issue, a spinal cord injury leading to paralysis and being in a wheelchair for life. Due to this I had extreme emotional turmoil accepting what had happened. He took the time to let me vent and then try alternative ways to accept my disability as much as I can. This has changed my whole life and it has been hard to adjust mentally, physically and emotionally. I have constant pain 24 hours a day.

Dr Rice continues to support my needs and recently I needed validation with a dilemma concerning a friend of 20 years who lives in another province or state(U.S). A person that I had for 20 plus year and someone that I relied on now does not want see me in person as its too hard for her to see me in a wheelchair.

I seeked Dr. Rice about this issue recently and was able to validate my opinion and emotions. He has helped me not to succumb into a deeper depression that I already have now.

Please seek his help as he has been able to lift me up from my severe depression.
