I believe gay men have inherent worth, and that we deserve fulfilling lives.
Are you a gay man who is overwhelmed by the intensity of your feelings? Do certain situations feel triggering or remind you of a past trauma? It can feel unbearable when you’re just trying to keep it together, and hoping nobody notices when you start breathing rapidly, sweating, or shaking. Even between intense moments, there can be a low-level anxiety that feels like it’s always lurking, ready to take over at any time. Not to mention the shame about not feeling in control of your responses. The good news is that there are specific skills that can be learned to listen to your emotions and think about your past in a whole new way.

As a queer woman I'm passionate about anti-oppressive practice and providing a safe(r) space to welcome everyone.
Your journey is unique, and you deserve therapy tailored to your needs and experiences. You can bring your whole self to our time together - laughter, tears, anger, joy, or grief, and the many layers of yourself. You're here because you want to be seen and heard, for someone to understand how much you've been through and how desperately you want things to change. You already have the strengths and ability, counselling is the boost you need to go further. I often support couples, folks exploring their identity, people navigating stress and anxiety, adults with complex parental relationships, and those nurturing their self-esteem.

I have an interest in supporting individuals & couples of all backgrounds with a particular passion for supporting LGBTQ + communities & those in non-traditional relationships.
Hi, thanks for visiting my profile! I'm a registered psychologist & I've been working in the mental health field for over 10 years. I offer online sessions for couples & adult individuals residing across AB as well as in person sessions at our office & outdoors near our office (nature therapy). I strongly believe that people come to therapy to find out what they don't know or confirm what they may already know. I love helping clients gain new insight & understanding about themselves, their relationships, & how they see the world. I am a goal oriented therapist who supports clients to get to a better place & make meaningful changes.

I am passionate about working with adults of all ages, especially those on the LGBTQ + spectrum.
Are you looking for an online therapist who is relatable and down-to-earth while also grounded in evidence-based approaches to therapy? Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, addiction or another mental health concern, I'm hopeful I can help. Mental health issues are at an all time high due to the unexpected new pressures that Covid-19 has brought into our lives. However, it is much easier to overcome these obstacles when we are nurtured, supported and challenged in the context of a therapeutic relationship. Perhaps this is a good time to seek online psychotherapy from a caring and compassionate mental health professional.

I have a special interest working with the LGBTQ * community and strive to create a safe space for them.
I believe each person is the expert in their own life but sometimes along our journey the lens through which we see the world and ourselves becomes a bit muddied and this impacts the way we behave and react to new experiences. My role in your journey is to help you see clearly again through that lens so you can get back to living more true to your authentic self. I work primarily from an attachment lens and have a gentle, yet direct approach to therapy. I work best with clients who aren't afraid to bring a little humor into sessions when appropriate and safe to do so.

My ability to create productive connections with clients is mostly due to my life experiences, especially my own difficult journey to achieving good mental health.

I am LGBTQ + affirming.
"Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein - As a psychologist, I tend to work with people to focus them on what they can change and control to find successes with their problems. Whether working with couples, families, children, youth, or adults, I'd like to be the guy who listens in a way others may have failed to hear you before. My ideal client is anyone craving new skills, new ways of thinking and feeling, and is ready to learn how to think anew about the things they were once sure of.

I welcome people from all walks of life, in monogamous and open relationships, straight and LGBTQ +, and am kink friendly.
In relationships when great sex (or any intimacy at all) is a distant memory, communication becomes stuck, and a feeling of closeness is longed for again, these become signs that a different approach is needed to end the frustration and renew aliveness. The desire for intimacy, to feel connected, and to matter are key aspects of who we are as human beings.

I enjoy working with clients from diverse sexual and cultural backgrounds, and consider myself an ally of the LGBTQ + community.
Being a Registered Psychologist and a naturally approachable, compassionate person allows me to connect with my clients and put them at ease. I take a down to earth, relational approach to therapy, meaning I value the relationship between therapist and client and genuinely care to learn about you and your concerns. I believe that everyone experiences both joys and challenges, and that we all take turns needing support. I have had the privilege of witnessing how human connection and implementing small changes can lead to positive impacts in my clients' lives and the lives of those around them.

My practice is queer affirming.
Throughout life we all come up against problems that get in the way of how we want to live. These problems can come in the form of loss, overwhelming emotions, challenges in relationships, isolation and erasure of identity. I take a narrative approach to counselling and draw on ideas and dignifying practices like the writing of therapeutic documents. It is likely committed to uncovering the responses people have been using to get by, and in some cases survive, despite difficult problems. We all have the right to our own experiences and to feel legitimate no matter how big or small, permanent or temporary a problem may be.
