Hi, I’m Alex Abbruzzese (he/him)!

I’m a Family Counsellor, a passionate video game player, a lover of music, and a navigator of emotional intelligence and regulation!  I have a profound respect for the human condition and all the various challenges that come with it – kids and teens attempting to figure out their intense emotions and at times reactive behaviours, while parents try to figure out how to live and parent alongside advances in technology – it’s overwhelming.  I am confident that I can help kids, teens, and their parents/caregivers navigate heavy emotions as a team while meeting their goals for success.

I aspire to help children, teens, and their parents/caregivers:

  • RECOGNIZE and UNDERSTAND core emotions and learn to ANTICIPATE TRIGGERS for anger and anxiety.
  • BRAINSTORM and COLLABORATE to build STRATEGIES to manage emotions and live life to the fullest.
  • Strengthen LISTENING AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS to increase cooperation and collaboration and create healthier relationships.
  • Build a PERSONALIZED TOOLKIT of skills to best navigate current concerns and face future challenges as they arise.

STRONGLY BELIEVE that learning to understand oneself including successes, failures, triumphs, and areas for improvement is complicated and challenging, but ultimately a worthwhile process. I am passionate about this process, and believe that learning to be your best self, no matter who you are, is something we should all strive towards – one small step at a time.

I look forward to working together to help your family overcome its challenges and strengthen its skills – so you can all tackle the future with confidence

Let’s get you and your family working together, talking about what’s really important, and making the best of your experiences together.
