First, I recognize and acknowledge the traditional territory of the Coast Salish people, in particular the Hul’qumi’num people, upon whose land I was born a visitor and currently live with my wife and children.

As a counsellor, I strive to understand clients within their active resiliency and strengths. I operate as a multi-platform counselling professional that works to integrate skills, approaches, and techniques that best suit the dynamic range of client needs. Each person is complex, unique, and contextually embedded, and it is with this in mind that I offer counselling services tailored to suit each individual where they are at, and in a way that is culturally and socially respectful.
