Blake is currently completing his Masters of Counselling through Athabasca University. Prior to that, he completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology at MacEwan University. Blake has supplemented his education with his diverse work experience, which included working in intensive group care and in an inner-city elementary school. He has worked closely with diverse populations including Indigenous, refugee, and newcomer populations. Blake utilizes a client-centered, solution-focused, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), emotionally focused therapy (EFT) and narrative approach to help collaborate with clients to find success on their own terms. Blake enjoys working with clients and seeing them grow and become empowered.
In his spare time Blake is passionate about music and art. He enjoys spending time with his wife and likes to engage in hands on activities like wood-working, fabrication, mechanics, and playing guitar.
