Jamesconsiders it a privilege to walk alongside people facing internal and interpersonal adversity.  Life can throw people into confusion which brings us to a place of seeking clarity through curiosity and compassion.  James never takes for granted the challenge change presents for clients and therefore brings warmth and wonder in sessions with clients.   James believes that collaboratively the client and counselor can create a real connection for healing, hope, and wholeness with an integrated approach to healing which includes other therapies addressing the whole person.  A client’s healing journey may start with physical pain or through relational suffering or inside your own emotional difficulty.  However, movement from desolation to consolation mostly happens from one person to another by working creatively through an experience of acceptance embarking on a new future. 

James has over 30 years of care giving experience from poverty to prosperity.  Out of trauma he’s witnessed hope.  From suffering he’s observed joy.  At times we need an experience of presence that gives rise to power for a promising future.  He lives in Squamish, British Columbia that prides itself as “Hardwired for Adventure” and a destination for the outdoors.  James has taken the outward adventure whether on the trails in his home town or cross culture travel in Malawi.  He has also taken the inward travel of interpersonal change walking with his own angst or that of family and friends.  He’s coached on the athletic field as well as the counseling room and while life includes competition it’s better lived collaboratively.  His favorite t-shirt says, “You can talk to be about mental health and dogs too …”
