I am passionate about working with adults who struggle with trauma, eating disorders, substance use disorders, & LGBTQIA+ individuals. All clients are unique & I tailor the therapeutic plan by drawing from a range of evidence-based approaches to suit each client. I am mindful that engaging in therapy is a daunting process & I admire the strength and resilience it takes for clients to engage in this process. I believe that the right fit between the client & psychologist is essential. As such, I offer a free 15-20 minute video consultation to help you decide if you feel comfortable working with me.

Life is messy and imperfect. Sexuality and identity is a lifelong journey. So many of us are limited in our exploration due to shame, stigma, or lack of sexuality education. I believe in a sex-positive approach which acknowledges and celebrates the diversity of human sexuality, identity and expression. When we are informed, empowered and validated, we live happier and more authentic lives.
