I work with you to feel more understood, encouraged, hopeful, and supported. As a result, you can expect to experience less anger, depression, fear and loneliness. This will lay the groundwork for you to make positive and lasting change.

I have 30+ years counselling experience, including 26 years in men's groups, as well as participation in many personal and professional growth groups. My approach to counselling is respectful, attentive, practical, and empowering and I work uniquely with each individual.

Your success in making life changes through counselling depends upon having a trusting relationship with your counsellor. Questions about my experience, values, and qualifications are welcome. You can also arrange a free telephone consult to outline your expectations and to see if we can work together productively. PLEASE NOTE: Friday appointments only.
