A bit about me personally...

I have been married for 27 years, and my wife Lee and have been blessed with two sons, a daughter-in-law, and now our first grandchild. 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.
