Get to Know Me.

A Turning Point

I entered the field of psychology relatively late in life. My previous career, although successful, had felt imposed upon me by circumstance, rather than authored in any meaningful way. 2010 marked a turning point, one that would ultimately end in a professional career in psychology. Two events stand out for me; my wife and I volunteered to facilitate a community based 12-step addiction recovery program (-ARP), and I made an appointment to see a psychologist regarding a problem I had struggled with for some time. Together these events began a ground shift in my self-awareness and a dissolution of the pretence that had characterized so much of my life.

Pyschological Services.

My approach is founded on a model of psychological flexibility known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or ACT. Please see below for services available.

Individual Counselling

Many of us hold the assumption that we are broken and need to be fixed before we can move forward in life. In this effort to “fix” ourselves, we work really hard to control our thoughts and feelings, only to discover that this is exhausting and, ultimately, unworkable. The longer we are stuck in this struggle, the greater the number of precious moments that slip away. I aim, through my approach, rooted in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), to help you create new ways of relating to your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations that liberate you to courageously show up to life.

Relationships & Couples Therapy

Couples play our symbolic themes that come to dominate their lives together, such as “I will be abandoned” or “my partner should meet all of my needs.” Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy combined with Schema Focused Couples Therapy, we collaboratively work toward detecting these themes and the pain they produce and change the avoidant coping strategies that maintain these themes in disrupted relationships.
