I am here to help. I embrace the "4C's" of my profession, an acronym that stands for caring, compassionate, competent, and well connected. You deserve the best, and that is all I offer. My ideal client is someone who is serious about improving, growing, and overcoming (or least better managing) whatever it is you need help with now. Please note that I live in Calgary and I offer live in-person sessions here, but I do see clients across Alberta via Internet using a program made for doctors.

I have written 10 books in total. My 850-page textbook called "Addictions Counseling Today: Substances and Addictive Behaviors" will be published in December 2019 by Sage, one of the largest publishers of textbooks in the U.S. I have also written two other textbooks. BOOK APPOINTMENT: Click icon called "Website" on left side.

I am an expert in helping. I am a respectful therapist who is concerned about what matters right now to you. I have been a registered psychologist since 1986, and despite my accomplishments, I am unpretentious, present, and humble. I am competent in many forms of psychotherapy.
