Meet Jason

Experienced. Certified. Supportive.



To bring his professional experience, training, and skill to clients seeking private therapy, while cultivating more balance and presence as a partner, father, and friend.



Guided by the belief that we’re all wonderfully fallible in our shared journey of the human experience, Jason draws on years of training, professional successes, and personal application of evidenced-based modalities. 

The main treatments he draws from include Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), and Psychodynamic principles.  Jason’s guided heavily by Attachment Theory and how this informs the way we understand both the parent-child relationship, and the romantic partner relationship.  He applies an understanding of how Trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences can shape our physiological, neurological, psychological, and interpersonal health. 

Using a deductive reasoning approach, you and Jason map out the different environmental, biological, and psychological puzzle pieces to understand the nature of your presenting problem, and then discuss the necessary treatment steps to remedy this.  Perhaps most notably, Jason leads with an authentic mixture of compassion, humour, and curiosity, while challenging you in constructive ways to meet your treatment goals.
