Following my education and training in Montreal, I returned home to Nova Scotia, where I have been practicing in both the public and private sectors of care as a registered psychologist for the last 7 years. In my practice, I strive to create a warm and collaborative space in which my clients can feel open to discuss their thoughts, feelings, and goals, safely and without judgment. I offer treatment to adults for many different psychological and psychosocial challenges, including but not limited to: * Anxiety * Depression (Mood Disorders) * Chronic Pain * Trauma/PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) * Addictions * Workplace Issues (Stress, Burnout, Bullying)

Jim believes that therapy should be targeted and effective, and that with the right tools, many challenges can be resolved sooner than we think. He understands that therapy is not meant to be a life-long engagement, but rather a collaborative process that creates a foundation for an authentic life. Jim is trained in Brainspotting, counselling hypnotherapy, and in working with complex trauma. He has been working in mental health since 2013. Currently, he specializes in working with men on issues related to chronic pain and physical injury, post-traumatic and workplace stress, depression, anxiety, and trauma.

No matter where you are right now in your pain , there is hope.
Welcome to the world of better mental health! Whether you are new to counselling or have worked with other counsellors in the past, you will find my approach fresh, unique, and active. The focus of my practice is on a smaller caseload so I can provide select clients with specialized care. When we sit together in my office or virtually, you have my attention, and my promise that the space between us will be of value. Trust, confidence, integrity, curiosity, and expertise are the core values I bring into each session. When I'm not in session, I thrive on continually enriching my skills and knowledge through education and exploration.

I have worked with clients who have multiple chronic conditions, depression, addictions, anxiety; experienced an overwhelming event (accident/physical assault) as well as chronic trauma (long-term illness / child/partner abuse).
CURRENTLY NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS. “Until you stop breathing, there's more right with you than wrong with you." (Jon Kabat-Zinn) This is also my guide and intention as a Registered Counselling Therapist. My work is to help an individual experience themselves differently while providing compassion, presence and skill in a safe space. I offer an integrated, eclectic approach that is based on each client's needs. Understanding attachment style, the effects of trauma and the mind-brain-body connection inform my therapeutic approach.

It is with regret that at this time I am not taking new clients. My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that people have an inherent capacity for healthiness. I will work with you to uncover that wellbeing again so that you can live the life you deserve with more vitality and authenticity whether you suffer from chronic illness , the burden of a traumatic injury or complex trauma, a diagnosis of PTSD, anxiety, depression, unprocessed grief, or the malaise that comes from being over-stressed and not coping as well as you'd like.

What has spared us from pain in the past often keeps us stuck and anxious in the present. Most of us wish to be free of our psychological suffering, but we find ourselves continuing to treat ourselves or others poorly in spite of our best interest to do otherwise. We all need a therapeutic relationship where we can learn to experience our emotions safely, regulate our anxiety, and turn against our defenses. I provide Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), a comprehensive form of psychotherapy that helps patients experience their emotions and understand themselves across a broad range of clinical concerns.

It can be influenced by many factors, including emotion and memory.
