The guiding principle to my work with others is that you are the expert on you and my job is to give you fresh ways of looking at situations, help you figure out solutions, and help make new ways of living endure. No matter the challenge - mental health, substance use, relationships, transitions, trauma, or a combination of them I work with you to navigate a positive way forward. Leveraging your strengths and guided by your values we work together toward getting you living in concert with your values.

I am strengths focused and believe your cup is half full! My heart lies with those in marginalized communities, LGBTQ, communities of color, seniors, & children from 12 years of age.

If you find yourself reading this, then there is a chance you may need someone to listen and help you move forward. I can help you move in a positive direction toward hope and a more fulfilling life.

Alan is a lovely guy, who instantly put me at ease. He had messaged me a few times before our first video session, which helped relieve the anxiety of having to chat with some one new online. He listens, and helps me think differently. I’m looking forward to more sessions with Alan, learning new ways to help myself.

I am so glad we were matched with Alan. He gave us the communication tools and safe space we needed to navigate some hard issues.
He is an excellent listener and was able to help us hear and understand each other in new and helpful ways.
We cannot recommend him enough, he helped us get to place where we are closer to each other than ever.
If we need any help in the future we will definitely be going back to Alan! :)

Alan is a very thoughtful and caring therapist. He goes the extra mile to ensure that all parties feel safe and cared for. After having had some challenging experiences with therapists in the past, he helped me regain faith in the value of therapy.

Alan is great and helped us so much so far

We've just finished our 4th session and it is with the utmost gratitude that we are expressing how Alan has helped us. Our relationship was at its lowest and we didn't know if we could come back from this but Alan allowed us to open up in a safe space and each session was more and more positive.

We now enjoy each other's company and look forward to be reunited when apart. It is of course a work in progress but we are very positive in the way our relationship will evolve. Thank you Alan for making this happen.
