If I think you require specialized help that I can t provide, I will let you know.

For more than 25 years I have worked in the field of Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) as a Counsellor and a Clinical Manager. Many of my clients came to me with concerns regarding marital and relationship issues, addictions, mental health and stress related concerns. As well, I consulted with many employees and managers on work related matters.

Previously I worked in a chronic care hospital, The Queen Elizabeth in Toronto Canada, providing counselling and support to patients and their families living with serious disabilities. I became quite familiar with the challenges and problems that these families face. My clients included young men and women who were paraplegics, as well as the elderly living with Alzheimer s and other debilitating diseases.

I began my professional career working in children's mental health at the Thistletown Regional Center in Toronto. My clients included families with children and adolescents who were concerned about their children s behavioural and emotional well being. Thistletown also provided me with excellent training in the area of family and marriage counselling.

On a more personal note

I live in Toronto Canada and have been married for over 30 years to a wonderful woman who is my soul mate and best friend. We have two adult daughters of whom we are very proud. I enjoy reading, skiing, exercise, listening to jazz, traveling and spending time with my family. Technology fascinates me, and I have found online counselling to be a wonderful way to combine my passion helping people, with my interest in technology.
