A. Richard “Sterling Sinclair” Chapman

     Richard is a nature loving husband, visual artist and work from home father with indigenous heritage.  His studio is at their family cottage/home on Moira Lake between Madoc and Tweed.  

    He started counselling in 1994.  The primary focus of his service was education counselling and advocacy for youth and adults.

   Richarf has worked in the spheres of sacred, spiritual, secular counselling, education, and creative counselling. . 

   Richard received his teaching certificate in 1992 and later studied special education – behaviour. 

    While Sterling was at seminary (Emmanuel College, University of Toronto 1998-2004), he trained in pastoral care.  His work in the church was heavily involved with home, hospital, hospice, and shut-in visitation as well as youth initiatives and conflict resolution. 

    Richard's universal focus on life and existence welcomes multiple beliefs, faiths, perceptions, realities, ways of life without personal judgment.   He often says, “We are here to live the lives we were meant to live.  We all live our lives differently.” 

    Most people would agree that Sterling is friendly, welcoming, approachable, sincerely caring, empathetic, helpful and nice.  Richard  is very unique and you can feel comfortable talking  to him.  Sterling does not judge - Sterling walks with you  

We look  forward to meeting you.

Blessings, Richard & Kim
