Erik is completing his Masters in Counselling Psychology at the University of British Columbia.
He has a BA in history and psychology, and his Master’s thesis is on new interventions for psychological trauma.
Erik believes that you are the expert in your own unique life, struggles, and dreams, but that all experts can use a team that supports them to unlock their potential. He would love to be a part of your team.
Working with Erik will be a cooperative process that helps you discover more of your inner strength, gifts, and capacity for happiness, success, and connection—whether you are working on taking your next big step in life or working on just taking the first step out of bed each day. He has seen time and again in himself and others that when we feel safe, supported, and in tune with ourselves, both our triumphs and our scars can help us to grow.
Erik began his career in youth work, restorative justice, and addictions, eventually training professionals and organizations in interpersonal skills. He has also given talks and training related to psychology and mental health for over a decade, and consults privately for dozens of the top live entertainers and speakers in the world to help them better engage audiences. His ultimate goal is to use his experience and connections to help build more strength-based preventive programs in the community.
In his free time Erik spends a lot of time in nature, re-learning how to have fun as an adult, and teaching himself magic—both for professional reasons and because it is never too late to become the coolest uncle in his family (though competition is fierce).
