ABOUT CHRIS

Canadian Certified Counsellor

Every individual has experienced life challenges and adversity. Sometimes, life can feel out of our control. My desire is to “sit” with clients in their suffering and help them regain a sense of control. I believe in the healing power of a strong and collaborative therapeutic relationship and work to achieve a counselling environment of safety, trust, and nonjudgment. When applicable, I love to laugh with clients and feel comfortable sharing my own embarrassing and challenging experiences.

I conceptualize mental wellness from a biopsychosocial perspective—that is, I view clients’ struggles as a combination of biological, psychological, and social (in addition to cultural and spiritual) factors. I feel this represents a more holistic and inclusive perspective for clients. My therapeutic approach derives from a combination of trauma-informed, attachment-based, and cognitive behavioural therapy.

I have worked with a variety of populations, ranging from children to elderly adults. Some of the issues I explore with clients include anxiety, depression, abuse, life transitions, anger, grief, couples/marriage issues, stress management, self-worth, and trauma. In addition, I also work with clients dealing with sport and performance issues. This is particularly close to me, as I came to terms with many of my own performance issues as an NCAA athlete.

I received my Master of Arts Degree in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association has certified me in good standing as a Canadian Certified Counsellor.
