Registered Clinical Counsellor, RCC #3164
ICEEFT Emotionally Focused (EFT) Therapist
It is important to me that my clients feel safe. It is in this safety that you can reconnect with your vulnerability as strength. You can restore your sense of self to live life with more authenticity and intentionality.
My training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) allows me to help couples make sense of their negative patterns. EFT is an evidence-based approach that focuses on how relationships get organized into these negative patterns. Rather than being caught in a circular power struggle, the meaning of relational distress can be reframed to understand how unmet longings for connection and protection become danger cues. When trust is shattered and partners don't feel safe to reach and respond, the Attachment Injury Repair Model (AIRM) can help couples heal and restore healthier bonds. Empirically, EFT is the most effective method for couple therapy.
I am honoured by the trust my clients place in me to walk alongside their journey. I live in Vancouver with my wife and three kids. We plan to take a sabbatical and bring our kids overseas in 2022 & 2023.
