Favorite Book: “Three Day Road” by Joseph Boyden

My 15 plus years of Counselling experience and education has afforded me the privilege to support adults in the areas of grief, trauma, rebuilding relationships, anxiety/depression, addictions, career transition/employment, cultural adaptation, mindfulness and managing mental health symptoms. I possess a particular interest and skill set in working with men in the areas of emotionality, relationships, family dynamics and self-development.

I strongly believe that we all want lives that work toward authenticity, purpose and peace of mind. We are more likely to experience this when we can begin to understand more honestly and get beyond the ‘old stories’ we frequently tell ourselves. Therapy is not so much about fixing our problems but allowing our problems to fix us through insight, courage and healthy planning…and of course laughter. Relationship and connection is key in the process.
