I’ve had the pleasure of being able to work as a counsellor/ therapist since 2005 in various settings including; healthcare, government, private firms, schools and non-profits. As well as my own private practice.
For over 15 years, I have worked to help people achieve their goals of health and happiness. I strongly believe in practicing from the values that I see create healing in my clients. These values include truly looking at what matters in people’s lives; understanding that all people want to be happy and at peace; recognizing that no one gets through this life unscathed; and hurt occurs in many different ways. I also understand that people respond to these injuries as best they can, but often these ways become cemented later in life, causing further pain. I would love to connect with you to help you achieve your goals and find some peace.
Like all of us, I strive to find happiness and health in my life as best I can. For me, this means maintaining a balance between work, spending time with family, pursuing my interests, and personal growth.
My passions include spending time with my family and friends, enjoying the outdoors, snowboarding, hiking, traveling, playing sports, taking walks, and going to movies when I can. While my office is located in Calgary, I live in Cochrane and am the proud father of two wonderful children. I continuously strive to grow and learn in my work because I believe it makes me a better person, partner, and father. This is one of the reasons I am so passionate about promoting couples’ and individual growth. I also am passionate about helping make change on larger-scale levels including advising corporations and policies to better support more people’s mental well-being.

Written by practice founder Dan McMillan, Badger and Turtle Face the Storm follows a pair of friends who learn to work together under stress. This book is meant for not only children to enjoy, but as a tool for families to better understand a common, hurtful pattern that can occur, particularly between parents.
