ABOUT Me

Welcome!

If you feel like therapy hasn’t worked for you or you’re feeling overwhelmed by trauma, depression, loneliness, perhaps misunderstood, or your having issues with your interpersonal relationships (marriage, intimate partner, friends, family) then you’ve come to the right place. I also enjoy helping men who are trying to find their place in the world and in themselves. If you want a holistic approach that looks at the whole you; body, mind, and spirit; then you are at the right place!

I believe that people are more than a sum of parts. Each of us are part of a bigger system. What we do, what we eat, and how we live all affect who we are and how we cope with the world around us. I have a special interest in nutrition, complementary and alternative medicine.
Since graduating with my Bachelor of Social Work in 1995, I have strived to improve the lives of those I work with and have constantly looked to improve myself and my abilities to help others. I have certificates in Online Counselling (Level 1 & 2), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT). In 2021, I received my Master of Social Work from University of Waterloo.

I work from an informed approach that includes

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Client Centered therapy, Trauma Informed and Mindfulness.

I have experience working in various indigenous cultures outside my own (Metis).

I also have extensive experience living and working within various European and Asian cultures having lived all over Canada.
