About Me

I believe in an invitational environment for therapy. All individuals should be offered the opportunity to enhance their mental health capacities, and have equal opportunity to treatment. Counselling should be a freedom and a right to pursue.

I have been a social psychologist/mental health therapist for 25 years. My original training was in CBT under Dr. Albert Ellis (my personal mentor in RET), Dr. Arnold Lazarus (BASIC ID), Gestalt training (Gestalt Institute of Cleveland), Reality Therapy (worked with Dr. William Glasser) and also clinical hypnosis training.

BESTSELLING AUTHOR/EXPERT of Anger Management (What's Your Anger Type?) used by educational institutions, private industry and government agencies for proven methods to overcome anger issues, as well as stress, and author Right Now Enough Is Enough: Overcoming Addiction.

MATTERS OF THE MIND, the former host of the popular mental health radio show heard out of Toronto, featuring leading experts in the field of mental health.

Current International Speaker & Educator for ESSENTIAL THERPAPY, and organization out of the UK that features the best experts in their fields for therapy, psychology and life coaching.

I am a published/articled social psychologist, as well as best selling author (anger management, addictions, and domestic abuse issues), and award-winning documentary producer/director (sexuality issues and peer pressure/abuse/conformity). Award winning director/producer 2021 for The Madonna Complex: Sexual Addiction.

I have been a professor of psychology in Canada for 26 years, and sought after guest speaker and guest expert on major TV networks/radio (i.e. Fox, ABC, CBC, Global TV, ESPN, etc.).

Counselling should be a welcomed privilege that should be cherished, embraced and honored, and not taken for granted, or abused. Counselling should never discriminate its ability to foster, accent and add to the knowledge base that is essential to the present, to future generations, and lastly never to forget those who were pioneers in psychotherapy, who would want the legacy of future psychotherapy to burn bright. As an author, published on 5 continents, for clients seeking counseling, I will include books that I have written, which are used in colleges and support groups free for you to read should your mental health issue match anything related to the several mental health help books.

As a Christian, I practice based on the premise that everyone is important, have a purpose, a great calling or anointment in their lives, and sometimes they just need a little help finding it, or finding the faith to do so.
