NEW!!! OUTDOOR GROUP EXPERIENCE. Click on the link above for more detail.


I am a proud husband and father who loves to travel, play, and explore the world with my wife and family.

Since moving to Calgary in 1998, I have spent a great deal of time climbing, ski touring and mountaineering.  Along the way I became a member of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and have logged countless hours leading groups of young people in the outdoors.

Education and Training

I am a Registered Psychologist in the Province of Alberta (#3978), and Canadian Certified Addiction Counsellor. I have a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology and an Undergraduate Degree in Therapeutic Recreation with a specialization in youth at risk. 

Professional Experience

I have been supporting young people, adults and families  experiencing addiction and mental health concerns since 1999. Aside from overseeing a busy practice Iā€™m also an instructor at Mt. Royal University, McMaster University, and Athabasca University.
