Thus far, my life’s horizons have been broad. I have many interests, yet psychology 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 health & wellness specialist. I believe this broad experience gives me a sense of grounding with respect to the “Big Picture”, and it helps me to better understand, empathize, and address the problems and frustrations of my clients.


my experience... in a nutshell


I am married, and I have two grown sons. Our family has lived on Vancouver Island for over fifteen years.
