I have significant experience working with men, and have developed a real sensitivity and empathy for the struggle many men face in opening up about, and making sense of their emotions. I believe we all have different ways of expressing ourselves and that using emotional language is not the only – or the correct – way to navigate our experience and relationships. If you are worried about being constantly asked how you feel, or about long awkward silences in the therapy room, that’s not what you will find here. I use humour, directness, prompts, helpful strategies, and most importantly, I work alongside you in a very human and engaged way. Our sessions will be collaborative and lead by what feels helpful to you.

The negative thoughts, feelings and situations we face in life is a regular part of the human experience. It’s normal to feel stressed, sad or angry when life doesn’t go the way we planned. But when no-one teaches men how to manage their feelings or behave in the face of hardship, it can lead to disaster. Unable to ask for help or not knowing where to go means men are alone as they carry around negative emotions. This can lead to anxiety or depression, or something much worse, like violence, addiction or suicide. Our proprietary method blends counselling and coaching to help men expand their mental agility and improve performance across all aspects of their personal and professional life. We help them untangle the mysteries of life, build their emotional resilience, and put them on the path to mental wellness.

We all need an outlet outside of family, friends and work to open-up about issues that need clarification. We can collaborate on solutions, and come up with ideas. Counselling often helps in dealing with problems that are bringing us down, and we feel holding us back from progressing in life.
My approach is influenced by person-centered theory using techniques from Solution Focused Therapy. I do not focus a great deal on emotions or get stuck in the past. Instead, I work on current behaviors, and where you want to go from here by breaking down what is holding you back.

Based in British Columbia, I work online with men across Canada who want to live more satisfying and meaningful lives, often in the face of trauma. My clients have realized that events in their past still have a hold on them and are preventing them from living the way they want. Many have had physically, emotionally, or sexually abusive childhoods, or have had frightening or painful experiences as younger adults. Though they may have come through the worst, they find their lives still affected years later. The counselling I offer can help you recover and grow through depression, anxiety and traumatic stress.

I have worked successfully with a lot of men in my practice. I understand how hard it can be for men to seek help. At the same time I know from experience that there’s tremendous benefit involved for those men who take that first step. My counselling approach is about compassion and non-judgement. Whatever is happening for you will be accepted and faced together. From a stance of respect and an underlying core belief that you have the wisdom within you to overcome your challenges, I will support you in recognizing and engaging powerful resources both within you and around you. Counselling theories and methodologies I use include Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I am a counselor and registered personal trainer who can combine mental health counseling with physical well-being. Our sessions will begin around understanding your present environment- what do we want to keep and what can we let go of. Next, what are you willing to try for your future as well as what has happened in your past. I combine my understanding of clinical practice philosophies (CBT, DBT, Narrative Therapy) with Indigenous mental health perspectives and strategies. I believe well-being is a practice. To sustain and nurture this practice does take some practice and help. My role is to hear where you are at, provide alternative perspectives on challenges, and provide potential solutions we can practice.

My approach is about exploring neglected strengths and inaccurate narratives to build awareness of subconscious habits that serve you no purpose. My trauma-informed, solutions focused approach aims to help you productively navigate through grief, anxiety, depression, relationship conflict and other life stressors. Together we are going to regain a healthier, more knowledgeable version of ourselves that has the resilience to manage life challenges.

I am humbled to have been working in the helping field since 2003. During this time, I have walked alongside many people as they navigate life, deal with hardships, and persevere. I see my role in supporting you as holding space for your hurt and distress while also assisting you in finding the change you hope to see within yourself and the relationships around you. I strive to create a partnership of trust and support and to shine a light on your strength and capacity. Typically, people come to see me because life is hard, but counselling does not need to be. I infuse our time together with hope, and laughter. A little bit about me is that I am a partner, father, weekend athlete and outdoor enthusiast.

It’s tough to be a man. I know. I’ve been one all of my life. Whether it be emotional or sexual intimacy issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and the over-reliance on career, substances, money or sex, men can get lost in a thousand different ways. For 36 years now I have been counselling men and know this territory inside and out.
