First, I'm going to make sure I understand your situation. My person-centred approach means I do my utmost to experience your situation as if it were my own, and reflect it back to you. You may be surprised to find out you've been giving yourself toxic messages, like "I'm such a failure," or "I'm unlovable," or "it's hopeless." We'll use the techniques of cognitive-behavioural therapy to challenge and overcome those messages. If you've been struggling with addiction, PTSD, or repeated bouts of depression, we'll use the techniques of mindfulness, a proven tool that can cut your chance of relapse in half. At every step, I'll do my utmost to make you feel safe and supported.


Right now, you're arguing or distancing, and you desperately need help. My approach to working with you is emotionally focused: I don't care who's "right" and who's "wrong," but I care about the fact that you're both hurting.

I can help you see that: your own hurt causes you to lash out or retreat, but you still love your partner even when you're arguing (or are silent). Acknowledging your hurt and the love and seeing it in your partner gives you a new way to relate, and moves you from blaming to understanding to caring. This is especially true if there has been an affair.


I've been dealing with people's problems for most of the past 11 years. After serving as a Jewish campus chaplain, I became the interfaith Resident Chaplain for the Emergency, Intensive Care, and Burn Units at Foothills Hospital in Calgary. Five years ago, I received my master's degree in Counselling Psychology, and since then I have worked as a Registered Clinical Counsellor. Many individuals (and many partners in couples) who see me have a history of trauma, and my research on trauma has been published in major psychology journals.

I have offices in both Nanaimo and Ladysmith, and I offer extended hours.
