Years Experience



The Power of your Past on the Emotions of Today

Therapy is a unique relationship that enables a process of looking at the power of your past on the emotions of today. I practice a reflective therapy that is based on the idea that many adult patterns of behaviour are related to negative early experiences.


These experiences cause patterns of distorted thinking and beliefs that may have been understandable back then but do not work in adult life.


The purpose of therapy is to explore these distortions, understand how they arose and find effective ways to overcome their influence on your thinking and behaviour through reflective dialogue.

In Therapy

In therapy, I believe the difficulties you are experiencing are because deep down you already know that you have something that is struggling to emerge and I will tailor our dialogue to meet your personal and specific needs considering what you want and don't want to achieve from therapy.


In therapy, the work comes from you and I believe what you put into therapy is in proportion to what you will get out of therapy. I believe 100% that what you most need will be found where you least want to look.


It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling, meaningful and happier life and to have the will to want a better relationship with yourself and others. I am here to support and empower you throughout your journey.

Kind Words...

Rick is a very unique man. He is very kind, smart and a great listener. I feel very comfortable sharing personal details with Rick, he is very approachable, light-hearted and funny. I look forward to my meetings with him every week and I love the fact he can ask me the right questions to get me to dig deeper into my mind to figure out thought patterns and past experiences which may be causing certain challenges in my life. This is exactly what I was looking for from a therapist. Therapy isn’t something that works overnight but every session I feel like I am learning more about myself and how I can change my inner dialogue to better serve myself in life. It is refreshing to be able to express myself to someone who understands me, has a passion for what they do and feel comfortable with. This is my first time trying therapy and I would definitely recommend Rick
