As a therapist, I love to encourage peoples' strengths and collaborate with them through areas of challenge, just as I have been helped by others in aspects I have struggled with in my life. I have walked alongside people experiencing many different kinds of challenges, including working in the Downtown Eastside (DTES) of Vancouver for over 7 years.  

Change is possible and working together we can find practical steps you can take today to feel uplifted, even while things feel hard right now in your life.

Areas of Focus:



Life Changes


Men's Issues

Substance Use


Education and Approach:

I completed a Masters of Social Work from University of British Columbia in 2017.

I use a client-centered, strengths-based approach, integrating Brief-Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, DBT and Narrative approaches to match the preferences of those I work with.

More about Chris:

My partner and I have two wonderful daughters- we love to have dance parties, make up songs, explore and forage in the forest. 

Playing basketball, swimming, reading, writing and especially connecting to nature with my friends, family or alone, are some of the things that bring me the greatest joys and peace.
