I have worked in the public school system for over 25 years with students of all ages (K-12) as both a teacher and a counsellor. I've also managed my own private counselling practice for the past 4 years - working with couples and individual clients. During that time, I've also coached a multitude of teams (basketball, x-country running).
My wife and I have been happily married for over 30 years - we have three adult children that we are very proud of.
Accessible, Responsive, Engaged
My core values are: authenticity, growth, grace, health, and humour. These are reflected in the way that I interact with my clients. I try to draw on my life experiences and my training to provide clients with a confidential space to be heard, and to get what they need. I am invested in helping people to live their best possible lives.
