PronounsHe/Him

In my sessions with clients, I always approach things from a compassionate, ethical, and thoughtful perspective. I am currently working as a sex and relationship therapist in private practice and am a Clinic Supervisor for An Elegant Mind.

My specialty areas include consensual non-monogamy, kink, and differences of desire. I have also supported folks exploring, transitioning, and asserting authentic gender expression for themselves. In addition to sex and relationship therapy, I have 12 years of experience working with trauma and have supported hundreds of folks in reclaiming their lives from painful experiences. For over 12 years I was a therapist, and eventually the Executive Director, of the BC Society for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse. Although I no longer work for the BC Society for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse (BCSMSSA), I do still offer long term therapy for men and male identified clients working through the legacy of historic trauma. I have supported hundreds of men in overcoming their experiences of childhood sexual abuse.

As a counsellor, I work from an integral perspective, which means that I am deeply committed to helping people grow and untie the knots that life and circumstances have created for them. I work with Mindfulness and Somatic based interventions to help liberate trapped feelings and free up vitality in relationships and individuals. This can involve opening up new perspectives, creating room for personal resilience, and helping old patterns ease into change.

I am also informed by Narrative therapy and I often encourage clients to reflect on how the stories we tell about our lives come to define us. I tend to explore the meaning of these stories with clients, looking for practical alternatives that lead my clients toward their goals and a preferred sense of who they are.

I have trained in psychedelic therapy with Therapsil under the tutelage of Dr. Ingrid Pacey and Charlotte Jackson. I believe that psychedelic informed psychotherapy offers a powerful tool in addressing deep trauma and various other challenging problems that talk therapy struggles to overcome. I see my role as supporting clients in making meaning out of the lessons they learned in a variety of expanded states of consciousness.

I trained at the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Vancouver and have taken further study at the Vancouver School of Narrative Therapy.

I also have a Master of Arts History in Religion, Mysticism and Western Esotericism from the Universiteit van Amsterdam, Netherlands.
