Let’s start a relationship based on trust, healing, growth, and fulfillment. My role is to walk alongside you as we delve into your emotions. I want to provide you with tools, communication, emotional awareness, and fulfillment as we navigate your struggles, successes, and transitions so you live a fulfilling life that highlights your true self, thus emphasizing your extraordinary personality. Through our work together, I would be grateful to help you navigate your experiences using empathy and without judgment in these categories: Addictions, Career changes, Parenting, Men’s issues, relationship issues, Anger management, Anxiety and depression, and Child and youth.

To ensure I am highly competent as a therapist, I completed my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. Furthermore, I exercise the highest level of ethical industry standards. Before becoming a counsellor, I completed my Bachelor of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University and worked in sales, marketing, procurement, operations, and management roles. I opened my first business in 2014, working with children and youth from many backgrounds. My experience led me to understand socioeconomic divides and different personality traits and propelled me to explore a career in a helping field. Through these experiences, I realized my passion lies in helping people reach their full potential. I operate from a person-centred and strength-based perspective. I also integrate CBT, mindfulness, narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, emotionally focused therapy, and other methods to cater to your needs. I recognize that we all come from different paths and consider cultural factors and family systems.

On a personal note, when I am not working, I enjoy playing sports, coaching, and spending time outdoors with my wife, kids, and dog.
