Before studying psychology, Gabriel explored other careers and life paths. He delved into engineering, management, and then Human Resources. There he found dealing with people was much more personally fulfilling than technology. The move from HR to Psychology was a natural step and so he started his studies in his current field as a Clinical Counsellor.
This personal exploration is very important to Gabriel. Now he helps others explore their life potential by using his extensive training to help guide each client through their own journey. Oceanview Counselling was founded to deliver effective help to people in need, who are ready to learn how their lives can improve.
Gabriel is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, and has a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. He brings more that 20 years of multidisciplinary education and experience to the counselling field. He is committed to assist individuals, couples, and families to overcome life challenges and to help them be the best version of themselves.
Through heartfelt empathy, wise insight, and courageous honesty he demonstrates his passion for helping.

He strives to ensure that each client finds healing from their personal wounds, freedom from destructive habits, and recovery from disheartening events. His sincere desire is to see individuals tackling life with renewed strength, courage, and hope.
