Personal Statement

As a former student of Delton Glebe, it is a privilege to work at the Delton Glebe Counselling Centre.  As a family physician with 25 years of clinical experience, and an ordained minister with 10 years ministry experience, I appreciate holistic collaborative multi-disciplinary mental health care.  I understand that goals for care include supporting wellness, resiliency, capacity-building, and integration within a community of support.
