Working side by side with you on your journey is a privilege. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space where you can speak open and honestly, in confidentiality. My approach not only focuses on relief from distress, but also helps to develop new tools and clarity of thoughts and feelings through open exploration. A process that can ultimately open up 

greater inner strength, joy, self-compassion, and serenity.

I am a Registered & Master Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC, MTC) licensed with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT), and an EFT & Gottman Method Couples Therapist.

As a Canadian​ Certified Addiction Counsellor (CCAC), I have training and experience in assessment, counselling, intervention, and treatment of substance abuse and addiction related disorders as well as working with families who are affected by someone else's struggle.  

Growing up in a small B.C. town, I learned the importance of connection to community and to the great outdoors. I love spending time with my wife and three children, whether hiking, camping, participating and coaching in team sports, skiing, or kayaking. Music is also very close to me, and I have blessed with many opportunities and settings to "unwind".

I have also been fortunate to work with some wonderful local organizations such as The BC Para-Alpine TeamSchool District 22, and as a volunteer with the North Okanagan Hospice Society

Finding a counsellor you connect with is very important. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or if you would like to book an appointment. 


As a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, a Gottman Method Couples Therapist, and a Canadian Certified Addiction Counsellor, I provide compassionate, confidential, non-judgemental, and insightful counselling services to individuals, couples, and families in Vernon, B.C.
