I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC), Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP - Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute) and BBTRS Breath Therapy Practitioner. My private practice includes working with trauma, including early developmental (pre-verbal periods).
I share my passion to serve the inner potential through facilitating groups and working privately with clients. My body based therapy practice integrates Trauma Healing (Somatic Experiencing), Hakomi (a body centered system of psychotherapy), and Relational Somatic Therapy. I am a student of The Ridhwan School - Diamond Approach and I take part in facilitating a weekly men's group in Vancouver.
In my free time I still enjoys playing hockey, drumming and spending time with my wife and extended family.
