As a Registered Clinical Counsellor, David calls on over 20 years of experience in the healthcare field and his training in both public health and counselling psychology. He uses a holistic approach that recognizes that good mental health is not just the absence of mental illness or distress but is also rooted in healthy relationships, a fulfilling home and community life, purposeful work and career options, and overall physical and mental wellbeing. Using techniques such as CBT, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness, David enjoys working with individuals and couples navigating life transitions. These include being in a new or struggling relationship, coming out to loved ones, starting a family, balancing life and work demands, planning for and starting a new career, or entering retirement, among others.
