For more than 25 years I have been involved in the outdoor adventure and social service sectors. My work centres on ethical and effective outdoor therapy practice. I offer counselling and consulting services to individuals and organizations who want to improve, learn and grow. I also provide youth work and counsellor training. I live on Southern Vancouver Island, the traditional unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples.
