Wayne supports youth and adults seeking help rediscovering their self-worth, fortifying challenging relationships, removing hurdles that intensify substance dependence, or living with a mental health diagnosis. With over a decade of experience in community mental health and substance use, Wayne is able to address addiction, chronic stress, insecurity, depression and anxiety, and other mental health challenges. Couples therapy work has also been a particular passion for Wayne. He can support you in exploring and refining communication, context, compromise, and chemistry.
Wayne understands navigating difficult circumstances can often lead to a deficit-focused viewpoint. That viewpoint quickly becomes the narrative. Helping one recognize their resiliency and allowing for productive outcomes is his focus. Wayne also amplifies an anti-oppressive framework: factors contributing to marginalization and exclusion will be addressed.
Wayne believes there’s an art to intentional communication; you’ll instantly feel that nothing else takes precedence, and your emotional safety is top of mind. Bringing self-awareness to each session is a collaborative effort where you and Wayne determine your focal points by answering the questions that are most meaningful to you.
