  • Couples Counselling Tyler is a queer, transgender person, and an adoptive parent to a neurodiverse child; with German (paternal) and British (maternal) ancestry, who as an uninvited settler has been living on the stolen lands of the lək̓ʷəŋən, Wyomilth, and WSÁNEĆ peoples, for the past 17 years. Tyler acknowledges that self-locating and territory acknowledgements are but one way of decolonizing his ways of knowing and being, and is committed to continually learning, growing, and self-educating, to show up in a good way.

    Tyler has been in the helping profession for over 25 years and prioritizes seeing people as complex, nuanced, and unique beings. They strive to keep their practice holistic and avoid ‘one size fits all’ approaches that attempt to fit folx into little boxes. Life has probably done this enough already, so people deserve a space where they are seen for who they are and their ways of being in the world.

    Through a person-centered, trauma-informed, strengths-based, and collaborative approach, Tyler creates a space for you to explore what matters most to you, where you are the expert in your life, and he is here as the guide to support you with your goals.

    Tyler’s approach is primarily informed by: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Self-Compassion, Neurodiversity Affirming Care and influenced by Narrative Therapy, and Somatic approaches. 

    Tyler aims to create and provide a space where people feel seen, heard, supported, and empowered to make connections and continue to grow and heal.
