My expertise and passion is helping people to transform destructive patterns into lives of meaning, connection, presence, and joy. My specialties include trauma-related issues, relationship issues, anxiety, self-confidence, grief, anger, depression, and the search for meaning. If you feel beaten down by negative thoughts, overwhelming feelings, and self-destructive and repetitive behaviour, or if you feel cut off from a sense of real purpose, connection, and aliveness, then good therapy can help. I have learned over the years that no matter how battered, degraded, or hopeless you may feel, transformation is always possible.
With over a decade of experience, and world-class training in a number of different areas, I'm proud to offer straightforward methods that are proven to get real life results. Along with my advanced training in several different evidence-based approaches to therapy (EMDR, DBT, CBT, IFS, DBR), I also work as a clinical consultant for therapists across Canada.
I believe that a therapist can only take someone as far as they've gone themselves, so, to that end, I've been dedicated to my own healing as both a client of therapy and a meditator for the past 17 years. If you're looking for someone who's dedicated his life to understanding and alleviating suffering, then please don't hesitate to reach out.

We'll start by setting concrete goals for our work together. Next, we'll collaboratively develop a plan for how to reach those goals. Often, that involves developing skills for how to manage emotions, build life-giving habits, or handle certain situations. Sometimes, it's also important to work through past experiences. Therapy also often involves finding a sense of purpose and joy in life.

I use an integrative approach to therapy. I often start with DBT, CBT, and ACT, because they're great for clarifying how you want to live and building concrete skills to manage daily life. For people who are looking for a deeper experience, EMDR, IFS, and DBR are highly effective at working with the unconscious, unhealed wounds that lead to unhelpful patterns in our behaviour and relationships.
