About Me

I personally don't believe there is an "ideal" client. My "ideal" client is any amazing person who had the courage to walk through the doors, share their story, and work collaboratively to find healing and happiness. That is the ideal client in my humble opinion!

My entire motivation is to hear your heart, listen to what's being said, and work cooperatively to find a solution. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am equipped with the skill set to work with individuals, couples, and families in their search for healing. Also, as an ordained minister I can work with individuals who are facing matters of spirituality.

Embarking on a therapeutic journey can be both frightening and overwhelming. Developing trust with a stranger, on top of all that you are facing can cause most to put this off. This is why I will work extremely hard to make this process as welcoming and safe as possible. I welcome the opportunity to walk this journey with you, and progress as life leads us.

Talking to Edward is always a pleasure. He’s enthusiastic and really takes the time to listen to how I feel, whilst placing my emotions in a grander picture. Not only do I feel comfortable talking to him, but I find his cooperative approach to be extremely motivating. I find strength in myself after every session. I recommend you give him a try!

You immediately feel like you’re friends, which makes it so easy to open up, and he reads between the lines and gets to the root every single time. I’m so glad I took this step and started on this journey!

I am not one that likes to talk about myself. I have not had some of the best experiences with male councelors. From the first words, I felt the positivity and the caring in his voice and could see it in his face. He is an extremely empathetic person that has started to gain my trust.

Ed is an honest man, you can tell him your deepest darkest worries and know that information is safe, not judged. He can read the subtext and always looks out for you. I am honoured to have him in my corner and fighting for me - even if I did not feel like fighting that day.
