I have a Bachelor of Science, an Honours Bachelor of Social Work, a Master of Divinity with specialized training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from the University of Toronto and Dr. Christine A. Padesky, Emotionally Focused Couple’s Therapy (EFT) with Dr. Sue Johnson, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Pastoral Counselling and Mindfulness.

With my years of experience as part of a multidisciplinary team in the mental health unit of a local hospital and as an ordained minister and retired Military Chaplain, I have helped numerous couples and individuals resolve and deal with their marriage and life struggles. I currently provide marriage and relationship counselling as well as psychotherapy in private practice at Life 360 Counselling.

Christian Counselling

As a person of faith, it's important for you to have a counsellor who understands and honours your beliefs. It’s essential that your counsellor not only has the background and training to understand deeper theological issues, but that they are also a person of deep faith.

As a retired ordained minister it's only natural that I approach counselling from a Christian worldview and with an in-depth knowledge of Scripture and theology. And as a retired RCAF Chaplain with more than 30 years of military service, I have a unique understanding of a variety of faith traditions and have counselled numerous individuals through their crises of faith and with their personal and relationship issues.

I am a devoted Christian, husband (married for 29 years) and father of two grown young men. I understand what it is like to face relationship issues and to face life's challenges as you work together to raise a family.

I see life as a three-legged stool - Spiritual - Mental - Physical. As we sit atop of this stool we try to have balance in our lives. If we completely cut off the spiritual leg, we are left to balance on the remaining two legs. It's not ideal, but many people try to manage to do just that. However, when our mental or physical health is injured or weakened, we are then left with only one leg and most people don't do well balancing. Life comes crashing down and we don't have the support of a faith community. The preponderance of research indicates that a connection to a faith community and a strong spiritual belief builds resilience in individuals and families. Without those connections we are more fragile and more vulnerable.

Life 360 Counselling is my practice. I specialize in couples counselling and individual psychotherapy focusing on relationships, divorce care, depression, stress, anxiety and pornography addiction.

Christian Premarital Counselling

We all want a marriage that will last through life's difficulties and struggles. A solid marriage starts with a strong foundation. Marriage preparation examines the issues that are key for your marriage to grow strong.

As a person of faith, you want to be sure you are both on the same track in your understanding of God and how faith impacts and improves our connection to one another.

Today, many young couples skip this important and foundational piece. Premarital counselling helps you better understand your relationship, and avoid the pitfalls that weaken and undermine a marriage early on.

At Life 360 Counselling we use Prepare-Enrich tools along with two decades of pre-marriage and couples counselling experience to ensure you are prepared for your journey together.
