I specialize in men’s mental health. The majority of my clients are between 18-45 years old, struggling with stress, depression and/or meaninglessness. Many of the men I see are also working through anger, jealousy and relationship issues as well as getting over their ex. What I do differently is go beyond talk therapy and incorporate meditation and yoga practice to help embody the work we do and change behaviour.

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 provide online therapy using evidence-based practices to help individuals overcome their challenges by learning better skills. Skills that can help them gain control over their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, and to live more successful lives. The focus of my approach is change oriented and compassion-driven. Assessments are done at the beginning to best understand the individual and plan for helpful life giving conversations.
