Kyle is currently studying Psychology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, where he competes on the men’s hockey team as well. Prior to SFU, Kyle played 4 years of Junior hockey, including two years at the Jr. A level in the Maritime Hockey League (MJAHL). During this time, Kyle went through many obstacles that challenged his mental toughness, including returning from multiple injuries. Throughout this process, Kyle had to learn ways to get out of his own way in order to play and feel his best. Kyle now hopes to help athletes do the same by combining his academic knowledge with his playing experience.
In addition to Psychology, Kyle is pursuing a double minor in Counselling and Human Development, as well as Educational Psychology. This provides Kyle with insight into the learning process, as well as the complexity of human development. Kyle also supplements various philosophical teachings into his practice, such as Buddhism and Stoicism to support intrinsic growth. Lastly, having experienced multiple long-term concussions, Kyle is passionate about anxiety management, as well as health and wellness practices to help individuals live in the present moment more often.
