About Me

Although I have lived in this community for nearly 15 years, I was born and raised in the Philippines, went to university and graduate school in the United States and have visited over 25 countries.  This background allows me to feel comfortable in multicultural settings.  My Master of Clinical Counselling Degree also included an Indigenous Studies emphasis.  While not indigenous myself, I have high respect for First Nations, Metis and Inuit cultures.  I recognize that we as settlers have brought untold harm to the indigenous and metis cultures of this land and I am trying to be part of the reconciliation process.  I realize that the world is a diverse and beautiful place, and every client brings his or her own unique being to the table.  I look forward to getting to know you and doing what I can to help you move towards harmony, healing and wholeness.

 

I graduated university in 2000, and got my first Master's Degree in 2002.  I worked for five years as a Family Services Worker for the Children's Aid Society and ten years as an Associate Pastor of a local church, where I became an ordained minister.  I became a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, the OAMHP and completed my Master of Clinical Counselling Degree in 2017.

When I’m not in the office, you might find me enjoying time with my lovely wife of nearly 20 years, or our 2 boys.  Or you might see me on the soccer pitch trying to kick a ball in a net.
