He has been working in the community mental health field for 5 years, in a variety of roles including as a behavior interventionist, shelter support worker, and clinical counsellor. He works from a Cognitive-Behavioral lens that is informed with a biopsychosocial framework. As such, John utilizes evidence- based practice, while placing them in the context of each client’s concerns. John has experience with a wide variety of clients and concerns with a focus on matters of anxiety, depression, and substance use.

 

Many spheres interact to contribute to well-being, particularly cognitions, emotions, physiology, environment, and social contexts. John’s undergraduate experience in biology makes him equipped to provide psycho-education as to the biological components impacting wellness. This information, in combination with the other contributing factors mentioned above, will be utilized to the benefit of moving clients towards their goals. Oftentimes, people facing challenging moments feel disconnected and isolated from those in their lives.
