A bit about me personally...

I have been married for 27 years, and my wife Lee and I have been blessed with two sons (one of whom is now married.) Our family has lived on Vancouver Island for over 15 years, and gratefully call it home.


Thus far, my life's horizons have been broad. I have many interests, yet psychotherapy remains my calling. Besides my experience as a husband and father, I have been a military officer and pilot, a crisis counsellor, an entrepreneur, and a community wellness specialist. I believe this broad experience gives me a sense of grounding with respect to the "Big Picture" and it helps me better understand, empathize, and address the problems and frustrations of my clients.
