I was born & raised in Peterborough Ontario & made my way to Kamloops in 1990. I believe that everyone has strengths and is doing the best they can. Because if they could do better, why wouldn’t they? As a result, my approach is geared toward how we do well, as well as, what makes us happy & gives us meaning. I am registered with the British Columbia College of Social Workers, a member of the BC Association of Social Workers & an Associate Member with the Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids. I have also competed a clinical Masters of Social Work at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus. My studies focused on Mental Health, Addiction & Men’s Health. Outside of professional practice I am a practicing father of two maturing offspring, enjoy independent Canadian music, arts & culture, have culinary passions, participate in social justice activities & enjoy the wonders of nature from under a tent.
How I work with clients
I work from a holistic perspective. The medical model provides some good insight into the physical part of our selves, but it does not always provide the best model in working with the mind, existential issues or spiritual components of a persons life.
