My vision is to transform personal challenges into opportunities for growth which leads to a more meaningful life. 


 My mission is to provide counselling services to children, adolescents, adults, couples, families, and senior adults from diverse backgrounds and varying socio-economic contexts.


I provide a non-judgmental and confidential environment in which clients feel comfortable to engage in therapy. Alternative ways to deliver my services are also available, whether it would be for clients to go for a walk, meet online or on the phone, or meet face to face. 


I am committed to seek the tools and strategies needed to improve the quality of care for each client and to ultimately attain positive outcomes for each individual. 



My practice is rooted in ethical principles that guide my professional designation and how I want to live my life. I strive to be honest and accurate with my actions and values and to bring attention to any discrepancy if it occurs


 I am dedicated to uncover clients strengths, talents and hopes and celebrate clients as they live out positive change.

Born and raised on Quadra Island, I am honoured to be working in the Campbell River community. I have been back in Campbell River for eight years now where I have been working as a teacher and school counsellor. I have also had the privilege of being a mental health counsellor at the John Howard Society, where I worked alongside Campbell River’s youth and their families. As an educator and a counsellor, I have witnessed the importance of meaningful connections and understanding that each individual has their story. I am continually blown away at the resilience of the people I work with and their ability to embrace the challenges they face to live a meaningful life. My greatest joy is my family. I am a proud father of two boys and am married to my loving wife. I am beyond grateful for the support of my immediate and extended family. Healthy family dynamics are vital in developing meaningful relationships throughout life, and I continue to try and learn how to grow as a family. 


"Drew is a compassionate and caring resource in our community. He counselled me to process and overcome a very difficult event in my life while validating my fears and emotions. I would recommend his counselling to any person who is in need!" 


“Drew challenged me to see a problem in a different way which inspired me to learn from my mistakes and grow as an individual”. 


“Drew is a compassionate and highly skilled clinical counsellor. Drew quickly builds a supportive and caring connection with people that encourages individuals to look within to find the answers they may be seeking” 


All communication is confidential

I am privileged to walk alongside my clients as they navigate the challenges life inevitably provides. With empathy, I strive to support each client in the midst of their differing circumstances. It is through a committed and strong therapeutic alliance that clients become empowered to move ahead in healthy and resilient ways.
