Conquering your fears . . . Overcoming obstacles . . .We Believe You Can.  I specialize in helping you perform better, whether that be at work, home, or on the field of play. I will work with you in a collaborative manner to work through problems and help to arrive at solutions. I strive to give you the tools you need to achieve peak performance and believe in your own infinite potential.

I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and hold a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from City University of Seattle. I have a Bachelor’s of Physical Education from the University of Alberta where I specialized in Sports Performance and Sport Psychology. I enjoy working with pre-teens, teens, young adults, and adults. I integrate my approach with general counselling populations as well as amateur and professional athletes.

 I am not your typical psychologist. You won't lay down on couches or sit in a stuffy waiting room. If you want to be surrounded by energetic professionals who believe in your capabilities then you have found the answer. I work with clients who are committed to their recovery and willing to do the hard work it can sometimes take to overcome their problems. Together we will construct a plan to achieve your goals and make your life more enjoyable and productive.

 I treat a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, concussion diagnosis and rehabilitation, injury rehabilitation and life transitions. I use a variety of therapy modalities including Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and tailor it to best suit your individual needs and reach your goals.

By helping people identify the things they wish to have changed in their lives and further develop the skills they already have, clients begin to construct a concrete vision for themselves and work toward making that vision a reality. My flexible approach ensures that client’s needs are the primary focus and that therapy is only as long as it needs to be. This allows you the client to get back to living life faster and utilize the skills you develop in therapy.

 
I have an extensive background in sport psychology and counselling with over twenty years of athletic coaching and mentoring experience and was a five-time member of the Canadian National Fencing Team. With a background in Exercise, Sports Performance, and Sport Psychology combined with training in Exercise Rehabilitation, he offers unique insight into eating disorders, weight control challenges, chronic pain management, and sport psychology needs.

 Whether you just need someone to talk to, are looking for that performance edge, or have a specific mental health concern, I would love to help you achieve your goals. Therapy can be a daunting process but together, you don't have to be afraid.

If you are seeking to elevate your sport performance, have a specific mental health concern or just need someone to talk to, I invite you to visit River Valley Health for help. Feel free to send me an  email or call at 780-430-9224.
