About Me

I am certified as an LPC Supervisor for individuals preparing for their own careers in therapy. I am also interested in persons with trauma and chronic mental illness. Issues, due to these having a serious impact on a person’s mental health. I have had varied career path leading to me being a therapist, but the most important training I received was in Emergency Medicine. The result is as a former first responder, I have a strong interest in providing support for our firefighters, police officers, and medical teams.
I feel that transparency, honesty, and compassion are very important in any work I do with clients in order to build the necessary trust to get them the help they need for themselves. I work to provide a welcoming environment that provides a feeling of safety, inclusion, and confidence in the therapeutic process. I’ve been practicing over 18 years in a variety of settings in my community, including crisis centers, community clinics, and hospitals. I have also practiced in traditional counseling practice settings.
I am always interested in helping people to understand the value of therapeutic work, and I look forward to going on that journey with you.

Gustavo is an incredibly thoughtful and caring therapist. He was a great match for me based on my initial questionnaire, and the rapport we have built is very important to me!

Gustavo is very helpful in providing perspectives that illuminate other areas of the subject that which I had not quite considered. He's very good at hearing people out and knowing when to chime in. Very professional approach.

Gustavo is a tremendous therapist. All the sessions I've had with Gustavo have made me feel very empowered to deal and cope with my everyday struggles. He has been incredibly helpful to make me feel equipped to deal with my depression.

Gustavo helped me to make sense of the fallout following a particularly difficult professional crisis. I connected with him during lockdown, as I was unable to shake-off crippling feelings of self doubt. He quickly tapped in to the issues at hand, helped me to recognise the truth of my situation and how to make peace with it. Gustavo is wise, realistic, patient and good humoured. I'm hugely grateful for Gustavo's support and can't recommend him highly enough.

I initially was a little unsure about having a male counsellor, but he quickly made me feel very much at ease on our 1st session. I would highly recommend him.

Gustavo is a great counselor. He is very down to earth and gives advice that is easy to understand. He is very insightful and has alot to offer. He has a good outlook on therapy and is very helpful. I will be taking a break from counseling, but if I return he will be my first choice. He is a very chill guy and listens well. This is my second counselor and my experience with Gustavo is just what i needed

Gustavo has been great so far, I look forward to continuing!

Written by E.L. on Nov 01, 2020 after therapy with Gustavo for 1 week on issues concerning depression, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I have only had one session so far with Gustavo but I already feel like he is going to help me tremendously! I was initially matched with a therapist who didn't help at all and gave generic responses to all my issues, however, after a month, I switched and Gustavo really listens to me. He gives great insight and also acknowledges my issues well without making me feel bad about the areas I need to improve to move on from some trauma. I look forward to going on this journey with him of healing from my past. He seems very kind and compassionate. I would recommend him to others.

Work with me!
