Ryan’s approach to counselling is focused on integrity, honesty, and respect. Since the counselling  is largely dependant upon the relationship between counsellor and counsellee, the journey needs to be a delicate balance of collaboration that is ultimately focused on the needs of the client. This collaborative approach includes a mix of Reality Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Transactional Analysis (TA), Refocusing Therapy, Client-Centred Therapy, and Psycho-education. Ryan is willing to incorporate biblical aspects into the counselling journey when appropriate.

Ryan’s areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

*Relationship Issues



*Sexual/physical/emotional Abuse






*Athletic Performance

Ryan is married to his loving and supportive wife. Together they have 2 adorable and energetic daughters. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family travelling, learning about various cultures, and reading.
