We want to help others experience restoration and become fully alive, we don't want to just share good ideas. Through formation, workshop presentations, retreat facilitation, and music ministry, Life Restoration provides means for change, growth, and lasting joy.


Jake has a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Theology with a concentration in Religious Education. Jake has worked as an adult educator, pastoral counsellor, sexual abuse counsellor, early childhood counsellor, and a counsellor in private practice for the past 10 years. Currently, Jake teaches at the Seminary of Christ the King offering human and pastoral formation to the seminarians in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. Jake also offers vitalizing workshops and retreats on a variety of topics. After 10 years in private practice, Jake is currently on sabbatical from his counseling practice.

Heather is an established worship leader with over 20 years of experience. She has led worship at many youth and adult retreats as well as national conferences.

We have been blessed to discover, learn, and experience many amazing things that have helped us grow and live in greater freedom. We want to share and help others experience what has restored our lives and the lives of others.
