Does your mind race, are you up in your head a lot, or do you procrastinate and struggle to realize your goals? Do you struggle with an inner critic and find that you are either overwhelmed by emotions or numb to emotions? Have you found success in your career but fear you will be discovered as an imposter? Or perhaps you struggle with addictive behaviours or in relationships and feel alone and not enough? Isn’t it the case you rationally know what to do but you are still unable to make effective change. These issues are defences, symptoms of an underlying cause, and I will help you get at the root of the issue so you can thrive in life and not just survive.
Hi. I’m Christian and I have been a therapist since 2008. I have a Master of Arts from the University of British Columbia and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with BCACC. My goal is to help you to become more connected to yourself so you can better connect and live your life with greater authenticity. To assist you in your personal growth and healing, I train and get supervised in AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy). As of 2023, I am a Certified AEDP Therapist.
AEDP helps you to become strong in the broken places; it is so much more than just talk therapy; it accelerates your growth resulting in permanent, transformational changes.
Who am I? I have 2 children and I have been in a loving relationship with my partner from high school. I am committed to my own personal growth. I practice and study meditation and volunteer as a meditation instructor. We love to travel and took a 5 month trip with the kids in 2023. I love my gym. I cycle-commute. I run and ski. And I am passionate about gardening and teaching myself about home renovation. I love chopping wood.
Please contact me by email if you want to get to work immediately or to set up a free, 20 minute phone call to see if we can work well together.
