Registered Clinical Counsellor, RCC #3164

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

It is important to me that my clients feel safe.  It is in this safety that you can reconnect with your vulnerability as strength and restore your sense of Self to live life with more authenticity and intentionality.


My IFS training helps me guide clients to make sense of their inner worlds and the good reasons behind the coping strategies that have become stuck patterns.  Similarly, EFT focuses on how couples fall into a negative cycle when partners rely on their individual coping strategies.  When the strategies are understood, the meaning of relational distress can be reframed to understand how unmet longings for connection and protection can become danger cues.  Empirically proven over decades of research, EFT is the best model for couple therapy, and IFS is described by trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk as the leading therapeutic model for deep healing in individual therapy.  These approaches also inform my counselling work with children and families in schools.


I value the trust clients place in me to walk alongside their important journey.  I live in Vancouver with my wife and three kids.
