About Andrew

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). I provide counselling and psychotherapy services for people who are dedicated to living a full and generous life. Do you give your time and energy for the sake of others? Are you inspired by the adventure of life? I am here to support you.

My practice is grounded in evidence-based therapeutic approaches like DBT, CBT, and mindfulness, and draws from wisdom traditions, existential philosophy, and non-verbal modalities like art and movement. And I value and build on the individualized healing practices we each innovate as we navigate our lives.

I work to support your healing and renewal when you have been stunned, knocked down, wounded, or overwhelmed in the course of your adventure through life, love, and work. I believe I can best support you by holding a safe, non-judgmental, highly-attuned space; by seeing, hearing, validating, and encouraging you; by helping you to connect to your innate wisdom; by collaborating with you to innovate solutions to your challenges; and by sharing skills, ideas, and alternative perspectives.

Life can be amazingly complicated, challenging, and unpredictable. I believe that people helping others survive and thrive gives life its meaning. I am grateful to those who have helped me through turbulent periods in my life and I am privileged to offer help to others in my professional role as a counsellor and psychotherapist. If you are hurting, overwhelmed, feeling stuck, or simply interested in doing some self-exploration, I encourage you to reach out to a mental health professional you feel you could connect with. If you think I may be that person, I invite you to get in touch.
