About Me

i am a 37-year old, newly-minted clinical counselor dedicated to helping people navigate their issues with depression, and anxiety and trauma. I have had my personal battles with these issues myself. I have dealt with a disability since a young age and also rebounded strongly after suffering a traumatic brain injury at the age of 24. I hope to bring my experience dealing with these issues together with my education and 10+ years of work experience in mental health dealing with depression anxiety and trauma together to help with what you are dealing with. I aim to learn your goals and help you achieve them by teaching you coping skills to deal with the obstacles that are currently in the way.

I had a very good experience having therapy with Toby.
The question that I had were heard and I could find the answers for them. I felt taken care of. Toby has a very good soothing voice and it makes me feel really comfortable. I had the feeling that Toby sincerely wanted to help me to feel better and knew how to do it.

Toby is a deeply empathetic person who I feel really understands where I’m coming from. He is able to be frank and meet me where I am in my medical and mental health journey. I’ve already seen positive effects from my time talking with him. Highly recommend.

Toby is not just an amazing counselor who understands, connects, and appreciates his clients but also someone who at this point I would even go as far as to say that he has also become a great friend to me and someone that I enjoy and look forward to speaking to when I do have a scheduled appointment, thank you Toby.

Toby listens and speaks from the heart. For those of us who are less comfortable with the cold and distant style of counsellor, Toby is not that. In just a few sessions, I felt that Toby brought his experience to bear on my situation from a place of empathy. Thanks for this, Toby. It meant so much at the exact time it was needed.

Toby is very insightful and thoughtful. He always listens to me and puts a lot of thought into his recommendations for me when offering possible solutions. He easily creates an open, calming, and underanding environment that puts me at ease.

Written on Mar 10, 2020 after therapy with Toby for 9 months on issues concerning anger management

Toby is a great person to chat with, extremely open and understanding, with an affinity to detect social dynamics in the situations described to him. He expressed interesting insights to explain potential underlying reasons for my behavioural issues. I would definitely recommend him for someone struggling with alcohol abuse or addiction related disorders.
