Works With

Areas Of Focus

Hi, I’m Justin from Halifax, Nova Scotia. As a skilled counsellor, case manager, researcher, and facilitator, my career has centred around mental health, addictions, and family support. My expertise lies in utilising a trauma-informed, strength-based, solution-focused approach to empower individuals, families, and groups to make positive changes and live happier and healthier lives. My career also has equipped me with a wealth of experience spanning various human services and I’m excited to enrich that knowledge further while doing my internship at SMB Counselling.

Throughout my professional journey, I have honed my abilities to resolve challenges on individual, family, and group levels. Whether I’m counselling clients or managing cases, my focus remains on maximising empowerment, resilience, and helping individuals from all walks of life.

“In a world that often demands so much from us, taking care of ourselves becomes non-negotiable. Physical health and mental well-being are intertwined components of wellness and self-care. Your Monday morning thoughts set the tone for your whole week. See yourself getting stronger and living a fulfilling, happier, and healthier life.”

I have a profound interest in continuous learning, and during my spare time I enjoy aerial photography and watching documentaries.
