Hi! I'm Dave!

As a counsellor, I use an integrative model with clients drawing on several evidence-based approaches, such as Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Narrative Therapy, to develop collaboratively a support plan that suits each person’s unique needs. I believe that we are who we are because of the people in our lives; our relationships shape us, and we, in turn, shape others. But, relationships are hard. In therapy, I try to help clients reach for the things and people that give them life and joy and to see where they are life and joy for others. I do this work with individuals, couples, and families. My previous work as a hospital chaplain gives me eyes to see the importance of spirituality for many people especially in times of suffering and grief.

Alongside my counselling work, I maintain a land consulting business in oil and gas. I also like stepping back from it all by putting my canoe in a quiet mountain lake with my wife or one of our four kids. I enjoy woodworking, gardening, and taking care of our dog, sheep, and chickens. Every winter, I put on the jacket of an amateur ice rink maker and bobsled track builder and just go for it!
