I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Counselling and Marriage &
Family Therapy from Trinity Western University and am currently working
on my Doctorate in Psychology from California Southern University. I
started my Langley counselling practice in 2009, while also working as the Clinical Director at Cares Counselling in Abbotsford, where I provided supervision and oversight to a team of therapists and interns from 2008 – 2015. In 2015, I resigned my position at Cares so I could work full time at my Langley office. In 2018, I expanded my practice to include another experienced counsellor, Roshni. She is a highly respected colleague with additional areas of expertise to offer.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife of 20 years, our two teenage daughters and dog. Growing up in the small town of Vanderhoof in Northern BC, I’m especially drawn to the outdoors and enjoy walking and hiking, downhill skiing, camping and boating, and riding my motorcycle. When at home, I enjoy reading historical fiction, playing guitar, game nights with the family, or relaxing in front of the TV.
