It was a great opportunity to work with Arnie. She was very welcoming, understanding and passionate about her work. She always put my schedule and concerns first she was very accommodating to my needs and wants. I was going through some difficult times in my life and she was able to help me look at the positives and how to focus on what to do get back on track which is the result of where I’m at now. It was a a pleasure working with Arnie and I would gladly work with her again need be or give her a strong to recommendation to anyone looking for help.

Arnie is very disarming so you feel comfortable, relaxed and safe almost immediately when you first meet her.
She is also very patient, accommodating, transparent and passionate about her work and helping others.
I am so grateful to have found her and would recommend her to anyone thinking of exploring counselling.

When I found the life skills counselling centre and Arnie, I was at a point in my life where everything was difficult. Arnie made it very easy for me to set up my initial appointment and all appointments thereafter. I was able to schedule my appointments around my work schedule which made it very convenient for me. Working with Arnie was wonderful, I had no idea what to expect going into it but I tried to keep and open mind and Arnie instantly put me at ease. She made it very easy for me to work through all my issues and I am very grateful for that. More...

Thank you Tori for your kind words. It was a pleasure working with you. I do my best to work with all clients and potential clients from the first phone call and throughout the process towards helping then to experience wholeness. Establishing therapeutic presence early puts my clients at ease and helps in their healing process. I'm happy to have given you hope and helped you to make your desired changes.

Q&As

Giving clients the skills to better manage their life and relationships, and see them take back control of their life.

A deep passion to help people experience the changes needed to live more fulfilling lives.

I'm passionate about my work, listen well and provide a caring, non-judgemental atmosphere in which clients can talk about issues with which they have struggled for years. I give clients the skills to help them cope with life's challenges.

I'm a certified facilitator in the technique of Traumatic Incident Reduction, a client-centered approach in Applied Metapsychology which effectively addresses and releases unwanted emotional or behavioural after-effects of traumatic incidents and painful life experiences: grief and loss, accidents, domestic violence, major injuries. TIR gives release from uncontrollable anger, depression, fears, anxieties, nagging guilt, sadness, disturbing memories, helps with persistent relationship problems, feelings of inadequacy and improves your ability to move on.

I'm a member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals, the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, an Affiliate Mental Health Professional of the Canadian Association of Marriage & Family Therapy and of the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapy, and a Certified Traumatic Incident Reduction Facilitator, and a trained Life Stress Reduction Facilitator with Applied Metapsychology International. I have a Masters degree in Counselling.

Services are offered virtually on Zoom and other platforms.

I have moved to virtual sessions, primarily on Zoom, with all my clients.

Services

Sometimes disagreements and disputes cannot be resolved without the help of an impartial third party. Sometimes, hurts and old emotional wounds resurface and threaten to destroy the stability of a relationship. Marriage and Couples Counselling Services - premarital and marriage enrichment counselling - are offered to develop the skills for lasting change.

This approach to counselling helps clients understand themselves and better manage the events and people in their lives over which they have no control. Using the Traumatic Incident Reduction and Life Stress Reduction modalities, you are guided to see how past traumatic incidents affect present behaviours.

You receive help to project your best self in every relationship, whether it be a marriage, family, common-law, workplace, or business relationship. You are guided to focus on building or re-establishing trust, increasing understanding, having open communication, and reducing conflicts to improve relationships.

Anger Management counselling is available for adults and teens (aged 13-17), and children (aged 9-12), getting to the root cause of the anger to facilitate changed behaviour. Referrals are accepted from all sources including court mandated referrals. Proactive self-referrals are welcome.

Domestic violence education provided to the perpetuators, with emphasis on the effects of the violence on the victims, including long term effects on children as young as six months old witnessing this violence. Help for victims provided using Traumatic Incidence Reduction modality. Referrals are accepted from all sources including court mandated referrals.

General counselling is provided in the areas of stress management, anxiety, bereavement/grief, and coping with life changes using the Traumatic Incident Reduction and Life Stress Reduction modalities.

Alcoholism is characterized by the consumption of alcohol at a level that interferes with physical and mental health and with family and social responsibilities. An alcoholic will continue to drink despite serious health, family, or legal problems. Alcohol abuse education is provided with emphasis on the effects of alcohol abuse on the brain and the body and on relationships.

Persons who are coping with the negative effects of trauma get to regain a sense of control and normalcy in their day-to-day functioning as trauma counselling is provided using the Traumatic Incident Reduction and Life Stress Reduction modalities.
