Welcome Home

Hi, My name is Richard and I hope that you will feel right at home while navigating my websites - both this site and my other site, ottawacounselling.com. I have provided a photo of myself that accompanied an article that was written about me in the Ottawa Citizen in 1997 entitled, "An Expert in Conflict". The internet can be a faceless, anonymous place and I therefore include my photo because "a picture is worth a thousand words".


In a sense, when you navigate through my web-site and peruse my e-pamphlets you will, in fact, be meeting me. That is my intent.

I am a very personable, friendly and warm counsellor-mediator. I am also very humourous. My doctoral dissertation was entitled, "Enthusiasm: The Elixir of Life." I infuse my practice with positive life energy and dedication.


I concentrate on healing and empowerment rather than on being clinical and "helping". I am eclectic and I bring a wide range of skills, techniques, modalities and wisdom to each counselling interaction. My approach is "wholistic" rather than clinical.

I look forward to meeting with you and working with you to enhance your life and make the most of each moment.

If the Beloved is everywhere, the lover is a veil,

But when living itself becomes the friend, lovers disappear.
