About

If you are a guy and apprehensive about counselling, welcome! You are not alone. Many people find counselling to be an anxiety producing experience but for many men it can be really uncomfortable. Do you suffer in silence? Feel shame? Have anger that is expressed in unhealthy ways? Experience relationship issues? Stressed out, depressed or anxious? If you want to work through your issues, whatever they are, it is possible to put them behind you. If YOU are willing to work on YOU I am committed to journeying with you to work towards the goals that you would like to achieve.
I work with men and couples on many issues including: men's issues, relationship challenges, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, stress, addictions, spirituality and more. I will help guide you towards your goals with interest and care using a mix of cognitive-behavioural, and mindfulness-based therapies.
If you are stressed about attending counselling don't let that stop you from seeking help. My clients feel comfortable with me because I am easygoing, caring and non-judgmental. I have had a varied career path that also includes being a journeyman carpenter and pastor, which helps me relate well to others. Give me a call.
