My name is Tim and I'm passionate about being a social worker/therapeutic counsellor; I feel privileged to do this work, to be trusted with clients inner most thoughts and personal experiences, to train mental health professionals in providing evidence-based services to others, and to reach a community well beyond my home in Canada in an effort to ensure everyone has access to resources they need to not only succeed, but thrive.
Registered Social Worker
I obtained my Master of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2013 and am an Attachment and Trauma Specialist working with adults and children.
I have published books and scientific articles. I am the co-author of The ACT Approach and The ACT Deck, Acceptance & Mindfulness for Children & Adolescents, and created the Trauma Coping Skills Deck.
I also wrote a free self-help book.
I have taught Acceptance & Commitment Therapy at McMaster University, internationally at workshops, and present my work at conferences.
I have an interest in using yoga and contemplative practices in my clinical work and became a yoga instructor to better adapt the practice to my work with clients. I am the founder of MYACT (Mindful Yoga-Based ACT) and offer an eight week group through my independent practice.
