Working side by side with you on your journey is a privilege. 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 Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC), Master Therapeutic Counsellor (MTC) licensed with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT), and a Gottman Method Couples Therapist. I provide compassionate, confidential, non-judgemental, and insightful counselling to individuals, couples, and families.  


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.  


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

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".

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.
