My Approach to Counselling
Anxiety, depression and trauma look different in each of one us but there are familiar patterns between them. Some have a harsh inner critic that won’t stop. Some have taken the wounds of the past and stuffed them as far down as they will go, but the ache remains. Others find themselves in unhelpful ways of coping with that pain. It can be hard to believe we are enough.
There is hope. In therapy we can work together to help all aspects of you come to a healthy place. My goal isn’t to just to help you cope, but to heal. We do it by attending to each part of you in distress. Piece by piece you bring your life back together. With gentleness and compassion I help people accept themselves, find their creativity, and let go of shame. There is beauty and courage inside you, it is just burdened by the pain and shame that has built up over the years.
It’s time let those burdens go and get find out how good life can be.
I am a husband and father of three. Aside from my time in college I’ve lived in Saskatoon for my entire life. For decades I supported people from all walks of life through mentoring and coaching in volunteer service. After 20 years as a business owner I decided I wanted to work with people for the last half of my career. Helping people is one of the great joys of my life. I started a working as counsellor in Saskatoon in 2019 to complete the requirements of my degree. In the spring of 2020 I graduated with a Master’s degree in counselling. Find out more here.
