About

I am a Credentialed Mental Health Nurse (CMHN) by discipline with many years of experience working in public settings such as adult and adolescent psychiatric inpatient units, emergency/crisis services, community rehabilitation facilities, and community outpatient clinics. My experience as a clinician finds interest in the revelatory power of dialogical practice, driven by the subjective possibilities that emerge within transferential relations — particularly within the analytic rapport.
I offer a suspended listening to clients seeking attuned recognition of the particularities of their suffering and conflicts, toward living a fuller life in pursuit of their singular desires and truths. I offer talking therapy formed around the needs and desires of clients, determined case by case.
This involves a selection or combination of, assessment/care planning, supportive counselling, targeted psychotherapy, analysis, family therapy, psycho-eduction and coordinated psychotherapeutic interventions for those with a lived experience of psychosis.
