I am committed to helping you discover and develop your inner strengths in order to help overcome any challenges that you may be facing. I understand that one of the most important parts of therapy is trust and therefore I work hard to build a strong alliance with my clients.
It is my goal to to create an atmosphere of safety, warmth and respect that supports people to courageously tell their story, face difficult emotions, learn new ways of coping, repair relationships, transform the impact of trauma, and move towards the change they seek to make in their lives.

Living with mental health struggles can be brutal! It can slowly drain you of your zest for life, your sense of pride and ability to overcome. It can keep you tethered to a past you’d like to leave behind. It can make you feel isolated and alone, misunderstood even by those who love you the most. Worst of all, it can it can convince you that life can’t ever be better for you. I want to tell you that it can, and given some time, effort and the right help, it will.

Being a counsellor is a natural extension of who I am. My strongest passion is to help individuals in coming home to themselves, accepting their own humanness with compassion, and using their own strengths to bring about their desired change. I have an appreciation for how one’s mental life can rob individuals of living authentically. As a counsellor, I value the unique identity and experience of each person and it is my desire that you experience a warm, supportive therapeutic relationship with me where you are encouraged to be the truest expression of yourself.

Every one of us humans will encounter this at some point in our lives, and working with a counsellor is a great way to walk through these issues with some guidance. Whether it feels like a big issue or a small one, there's no shame in getting professional support. Trust me, everyone of us therapists have our own support systems we need to get us through challenges in life too.
I value helping others to develop and enhance skills which will support a good relationship with self and others. We all struggle at times and I know first-hand how impactful compassion and support from a skilled counsellor can be. During difficult times in our lives we need people in our corner who believe in us. It was my personal experience with some very kind and compassionate counsellors that led me to the helping profession.
I love helping people, which is why I chose to go into counselling. Everyone goes through times of struggles and challenges.

If life feels overwhelming or perhaps feels like you are in emotional pain and are having trouble coping, I meet clients where they are at in their struggles and help them to unpack their emotions and offer strategies for increased resilliancy. I practice from a strength and client-centred approach. I have worked with children and youth for over 8 years and apply this knowledge in my clinical work with children youth and families. Being a father myself, I can relate to some of the hardships that families endure and stand beside my clients to offer support and validation.
I am passionate about working alongside my clients facing a variety of challenges related to relationships, family, mental health, and life transitions.

Hey, life sucks sometimes. That's ok, that's supposed to happen. When life starts to suck a lot, that's when it's not ok. The world is a crazy place right now; dividing, polarizing, uncertain, and full of unpredictable stuff. That compounds with our own life stuff (stress from work, relationships, finances, socializing, family obligations, etc) and it can feel really tough to manage. This is where I come in. I can help with the "not feeling ok", the bursts of anger, the periods of sadness, the fog of confusion/uncertainty, the loneliness and isolation, the "what's wrong with me"'s. Let's figure that shit out.
