About Dave

Client-centered and family-focused individual and family counselling is offered to promote wellness and manage anxiety, depression and mood disorders, as well as improve family relations and decrease conflict and stress. Dave’s practice provides a trauma-informed and collaborative process that includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Family Systems Counselling.  Extensive experience working with self-injuring and suicidal youth, parent/child conflict, positive parenting practices, fathering, children who witness violence, as well as grief and loss.  Dave has developed work shops and group programs for fathers to address domestic violence and for parents who have self-harming youth.
