Treating the Whole Person for a Whole Mind

Helping People Change Themselves

Treating the whole person for a whole mind AND LIFE

Helping People Change Themselves

At Lifeworks, we believe in using a holistic approach to help people with their psychological functioning. We believe in the innate worth of each individual and tailor our services to meet the needs of each individual and their unique situations. We have never changed anyone through our work. However, we do help people change themselves, and make a difference in their lives, the lives of other important to them, and their community. We teach people to realize their own inner strength to promote personal change, growth, and a sense of purpose and capability.

As leader of the Lifeworks team, I approach my work with passion; as a husband and father of five children I believe in a holistic approach to my own life and the lives of others. In all the work I do, I try to integrate the psychological with spirit, nutrition, lifestyle, physical functioning, personal values, etc.

It is a privilege to serve the communities and people of Ontario.

After graduating with a Doctoral Degree in Clinical Counselling Psychology from York University, I returned home to North Bay to work with adults at the regional psychiatric hospital for 5 years. I then moved on to perform the duties of Clinical Supervisor at North Bay’s Children’s Mental Health Centre, working with children and families as well as associated community resources such as schools. A part-time practice evolved into a full-time practice in 1995.
