About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 5 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting challenges, LGBTQ+, crisis intervention, and addiction. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, client-centered and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Joel is compassionate and I feel like he listens to what I’m saying and takes time to make sure he’s clear about it. He’s offered great advice about issues I’ve been having and even more importantly, I feel like I can tell him when things aren’t working. He’s very easy to talk to.

Joel is so lovely, kind and patient. He truly is a great support for me but also helps me to look at my own behaviours and see how I can change things to better myself. Sometimes we laugh and sometimes we cry but I always finish a session feeling better!

Joel is extremely accommodating and conscious of my emotional well-being. Its his assertive communication style that makes me feel at ease to speak openly. This is my first online therapy sessions and I was skeptical at first. Thanks to Joel, who makes this new medium a comfortable & familiar space to look foward to every week

Joel’s helped me a lot in the past couple of months since I started therapy with him. Speaking with him has been easy and comfortable, I’ve been able to overcome major mental and emotional obstacles with his guidance. His help has been a key element in me getting out of a dark place and starting to resume a normal life. He sees past the rambling and into the core. I would highly recommend Joel to anyone who feels stuck in a bad place - emotionally, mentally etc.
