I provide consulting in mental health, addictions, and trauma for a wide range of organizations. These themes are complex, interwoven, and (almost) universal aspects of the human experience. The ways we choose to deal with them are as diverse as individuals and communities can be. Because of this diversity, my consulting projects take multiple forms: innovative approaches to counselling, therapy, and education; cultural and community practices both ancient and modern; facilitation and leadership training; and many more. I describe the most common contexts for this work in the sections that follow. You can read more about my professional background here.
