RPsych (Registered Psychologist)
- Highest Academic Graduate Degree: PhD
- Gender: Male
- NSBEP Reg. # R0952
I am a Psychologist (Candidate Register) with NSBEP and a member of APNS.
I completed my BSc at the University of New Brunswick, my MA in Clinical Psychology at the University of Manitoba, and my Doctoral Residency at QEII. Currently I take patients at Green Leaf during the evenings.
I develop an understanding of the difficulties people face from Client-Centered, Cognitive Behavioural, and Systems perspectives. In therapy, I first get to know a person or a couple holistically by learning their culture, identities, strengths, and what they wish to work on. I then draw upon influences from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based therapies, Motivational Interviewing, and Behavioural Change Strategies to help people define and achieve their values and goals.
I am comfortable providing individual therapy for a wide range of challenges people face throughout adulthood. I work closely with a variety of people experiencing both physical health and mental health difficulties. I also provide therapy for couples focused on creating an understanding of mutual values and goals, fostering communication skills, building intimacy, getting in touch with emotions, solving conflicts, and fighting fair.
