Meet Jonah: Specializing in Relationship Counselling, Anger Management, and Trauma Therapy

Updated: Nov 8, 2023

Jonah Fialkow provides relationship counselling in Vancouver

Are you seeking to transform your relationships, manage anger, overcome addiction, or

heal from past traumas? My name is Jonah Robin Fialkow, and I'm a therapist specializing in relationship counselling, anger management, addiction recovery, and trauma healing. With extensive training in the Gottman method, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I think of myself as a collaborator with my clients, guiding you on your path to healing and personal growth when things feel unsteady.

Why Anger, ADHD, Addiction and Trauma Therapy?

As a therapist, I believe in a solution-focused approach to therapy. I'm dedicated to

helping you achieve practical, real-life solutions to the challenges you face. Whether you're struggling in your relationship, dealing with anger issues, beginning (or continuing) your recovery from addiction, or healing from trauma, I offer a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your concerns and work towards lasting change. While these specialty areas might sound quite different, what they have in common is that they involve an experience of overwhelming emotions that lead to behaviour that doesn't feel like "you" and ends up interfering with your life. In other words: emotion regulation and impulse control.

I strive to get to the bottom of where these feelings and behaviours are coming from (trauma, family of origin, environmental pressures etc.), and provide you with practical tools so that the feelings aren't so overwhelming and the behaviour doesn't feel so automatic. I am working alongside my clients to help them feel like they have a choice about the direction in their life, and the confidence to deal with stress and difficult feelings when they happen.

Relationship Counselling Near You

Couples often face unique challenges that can strain even the strongest bonds. With

specialized training in the Gottman Method, I am equipped to assist you in building and

maintaining healthy, loving relationships. The Gottman Method is based on decades of research and is known for its effectiveness in improving communication, understanding, and emotional intimacy between couples. By working with me, you'll gain the tools to enhance your connection and overcome common relationship issues.

Effective Anger Management

Do you sometimes not recognize yourself when you get into a conflict? Uncontrolled anger can have a profound impact on your relationships, personal well-being, and overall quality of life. My integrated approach combines elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you manage anger more effectively and overcome obsessive thoughts. We will work together to identify triggers, develop coping strategies, and foster emotional regulation, enabling you to navigate challenging situations with greater ease and control.

Overcoming Addiction with Compassion

Addiction is a complex and challenging journey, but you don't have to go it alone.

Whether you're struggling with substance abuse, gambling, videogames, or any other form of addiction, I can provide you with the support and guidance you need to break free from the cycle. Through a combination of therapeutic techniques, we will work towards your recovery goals, addressing underlying issues and promoting long-term sobriety.

EMDR Therapy for Trauma and PTSD

Traumatic experiences can cast a long shadow over your life, impacting your mental and

emotional well-being. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

(EMDR), an evidence-based therapy approach that is highly effective in treating trauma-related disorders. EMDR helps process distressing memories, allowing you to move forward and regain control of your life.
