He has experience counselling in a variety of therapeutic settings with a focus on post-secondary environments. His counselling style is integrative, client-centred, trauma-informed, and LGBTQ2S+ friendly. His past work with students has focused on issues of anxiety, depression, stress management, adjustment to university, relationships, trauma, addictions, gender, sexuality and identity. His past work in a post-secondary setting was as a Personal Counsellor with Fanshawe College’s Counselling and Accessibility Services in London, Ontario.
He is currently collaborating with representatives from NSCC, SMU, St. FX, CBU, and NSCAD to develop a program targeted at engaging male-identifying students as allies in preventing sexual violence on-campus. This initiative is funded through the Nova Scotia Universities and the Nova Scotia Community College Sexual Violence Prevention Grant. The program will combine the Man|Made program (a psychoeducational group discussion program developed by ANOVA in London, Ontario) with an experiential learning component. They are hoping to begin delivering the program on each campus during the Fall 2021 semester.
