About

As the clinical director at Transformation Counselling, I pride myself on being authentic, highly trained, and deeply dedicated to our clients' healing. I am the only therapist in Canada to be certified in EMDR, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and I am also trained in Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and IFS. I've studied with psychological and spiritual masters around the world, I've practiced meditation for 15 years, and I lived as a monk before going to graduate school. I'm also just a normal dude who knows that being human is really hard sometimes.
Over the years, I've built Transformation Counselling with the vision of providing truly effective psychotherapy for our community. I've gathered a group of incredibly intelligent, kind, and dedicated therapists who are collectively trained to work with just about any psychological, existential, or spiritual issue you can imagine.
While I am no longer accepting new clients myself, I invite you to reach out so that we can connect you with one of our talented therapists. We know that getting stuck on a long waitlist sucks, so if our therapists are full, we can still do an intake and connect you with one of our trusted colleagues in town. Either way, we'll make sure you're in good hands.
