We all need a safe space to explore our current situation, consider new perspectives, and explore what truly is important in our lives.
I have a M.A. in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. I am a member of the Canadian Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (CPCA) and College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).  
I have 14-years in community mental health and addiction organizations. This has given myself experience working with individuals of all ages in different capacities. For 11 years, I lived in Kingston, Ontario, where I worked as a Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist. This experience of supporting individuals with severe and persistent mental illness allowed individuals to rediscover themselves and what they value, while fine-tuning coping strategies and making personal changes to obtain their holistic goals.
Recently my wife and I moved back to Kingston to pursue my goals as a Registered Psychotherapist. 
Feel free to email me to explore different ways I can support your journey. Thank you.
