Luke – Registered Clinical Counsellor & Registered Social Worker

Luke comes from a background of Social Work and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and a Registered Social Worker (RSW). He focuses on helping clients discover what it means for them to live authentically, and what is holding them back from doing so. His journey with mental health challenges has fueled his passion for helping others navigate paths toward their healing and self-discovery. He understands the deep complexities and emotional struggles we encounter while striving to create the life we want. “Healing” is nonlinear and means something different for everyone. This is why Luke embraces tenets of narrative therapy as his favourite tool in counselling because the focus is on one’s individual story. Through this approach, he collaborates with clients to explore and evaluate their personal stories and values, offering new perspectives and empowering them to rewrite their narratives in a way that promotes growth, stability, and self-compassion.  

Luke blends various other therapeutic modalities into his sessions to work in tandem with his narrative therapy approach. This combination allows him to tailor sessions to meet individuals where they are at, with flexibility and comfort in mind. Each of us knows what it means to live authentically – we all want to be ourselves. Counselling with Luke offers a safe space to learn what is holding you back, and the skills you need to get to the life you want to live and thrive in your relationships. Most importantly, your relationship with yourself.  

It is important to find a good fit with a counsellor and having learned from his own experiences as a client, Luke offers free consultation calls to ease anxiety and answer any questions you may have.
