Cam has spent his professional career supporting people from all walks of life. He has over 12 years of experience closely supporting adults and youth struggling with anxiety, anger and low self-esteem. As a Youth Support Worker and Therapeutic Mentor Cam developed his ability to build strong therapeutic relationships and address the emotional, behavioural and social needs of those supported. He has continued to hone these skills in his work with the Canadian Mental Health Association.
Clients would describe Cam as compassionate, encouraging and non-judgmental. He has been an advocate for the continued destigmitization of mental health support and has shown an innate ability to connect and empathize with people who are struggling to gain confidence. Cam understands that there is a requisite amount of courage involved when it comes to seeking counselling.
Cam draws from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. He values the importance of building strong rapport with clients and using evidence-based approaches.
In his free time, Cam can be found hiking on the Bruce Trail with his wife and their basset hound. In his work away from the office Cam leads hikes and facilitates outdoor activities in hopes of promoting physical and mental health.
