Modern urban life is complex, often confusing, and very stressful. Full of exciting
challenges when it's going well, it can also be overwhelming. I know - I have navigated
many of life's milestones, and experienced my share of success and failure. I also know
the value of having an experienced professional to consult with about major decisions
and 'bumps in the road'. To live calmly and confidently you need clarity, emotional
support, and up-to-date information.
With more than 25 years of experience in business, management, education, consulting,
and psychology, I bring a broad base of knowledge and life skills to my work with clients.
I've seen lots of change, but it's wonderful how it all comes together to broaden my
My clients come from varied walks of life - business, health care, education,
technology, sports, security and police work, academia, public service, and the arts.
They keep me on my toes and 'in touch' - the work I do today is more exciting and
fulfilling than ever. A top priority (and source of pride) is helping all my clients
to build lasting confidence, emotional calmness, and self-reliance that they can carry
through life after our work together.
Academically, my credentials include a Masters Degree (M.A.) in Counselling Pychology
(City University, Vancouver, BC). I also hold a Master of Science Degree (M.Sc.) from the
University of Regina, and a Bachelor of Science Degree (B.Sc.) from the University of
Professionally, I am a registered clinical counsellor (RCC) with the B.C. Association
of Clinical Counsellors, a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian
Counselling Association, and am a member of the Canadian Society of Clinical
Hypnosis (BC Division). Professional ethics are very important in my work with clients
and I adhere to the ethical guidelines of these associations.
My wife and I have been married for 30+ wonderful years, and enjoy life in the scenic
riverside community of Riverport, in south-east Richmond, British Columbia.
my counselling approach is holistic and collaborative.
I employ strategies that consider all aspects of my clients' hopes and dreams
(vocational, emotional, financial, and relationships). I believe that everyone
has within them a natural capacity for self-understanding, self-healing, and change.
My role is to help clients clarify and deepen their self-knowledge
then, as they
learn new awareness and skills, I'm with them as a mentor and coach, information
source and sounding board
supporting them through the process of stepping into a
life of confidence and fulfilment.
My approach is practical and balanced and directed at achieving genuine results
in the shortest time
