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 therapist I bring lived experience, compassion & understanding to our work together.
Nice to meet you. I see and honour all the layers of identity you bring forth. Do you feel lost or disconnected from yourself? Would you like to take steps to live a more authentic life? Do you want others to get to know the real you? Maybe you are wanting out of the closet, out of the shadows, or to have a space to explore your identity, sexuality or relationships. You might also be looking for a gender affirming therapist to support your journey as you begin or continue your transition. I take a holistic and anti-oppressive approach to mental health, and believe we all have the potential to grow, rewire our brains and heal.

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 love helping my clients discover new perspectives, new life skills, and new ways of being in the world so they are able to have more satisfying lives. Life shouldn’t only be about surviving... it should be much more about thriving! Book a free, 25 minute consult with me to learn more.

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 approach counselling from a lens that is grounded in the continued practice of anti-racism, disability justice, queer theory, sex positivity, and that recognizes the systemic violence that has, and continues to, harm us and impact our experiences in the world, and inside ourselves. The main niche of folks that I have had the honour of working with over the years have been queer and trans folks, sex workers, disabled folks, non-traditional relationship networks, kink and bdsm communities, BIPOC folks, folks navigating complex trauma, and those living at the intersections of many of these identities.

As a queer woman living in a bigger body, providing a safe(r) space for all is my priority.
You're here because you're feeling overwhelmed and stuck and you're ready for things to be different. Don't keep struggling alone, I'm here to support you. A warm and compassionate space will help you feel safe to share your challenges. Together we'll explore how your past is impacting your present, find patterns that aren't helpful anymore, and how change is possible. You'll get ideas on how to apply your strengths, learn practical skills and new strategies to try, and non-judgemental perspectives to consider. The feedback you share will personalize your journey as we join together to find your new way forward.

I am enthusiastically Queer and Trans Affirming.
I aim to be an unusual therapist. I harness imagination, energy, enthusiasm, poetry, and humour in my effort to understand your story and elevate your voice. Whether you are considering the past, the present, or the future, I believe that therapeutic conversations can expand the options, responses, and actions we have available to us and help us to recognize our opportunity to be active agents in our own lives- or the protagonist of our own story! I get excited about this and do not hold back this excitement as you move closer to your goals.

As a psychologist/sexologist, I offer individual and couple’s therapy in a safe and non-judgemental environment that is LGBTQ and poly/lifestyle/kink friendly, focusing on healthy relationships and sex/intimacy issues.
Relationships are key to our existence as humans. We thrive on connection. Often from our earliest connections, we learn patterns and coping mechanisms for survival that can get in the way of presence with ourselves and with others. We have fears or blockages that get in the way of intimacy and expressing ourselves fully in this world. I would be honoured to walk along side you to help illuminate your path to inner growth and transformation, as you find your voice in relationships and freedom in sexual expression.

At Intrinsic Psychology, our counsellors provide support in, and have experience related to, a wide variety of areas including: self-esteem, self-awareness, anxiety, depression, mindfulness, meditation, stress reduction, identity, LGBTQ , couples/marriage, life transitions, family, parenting, communication, trauma, and interpersonal difficulties.
As the founder of Intrinsic Psychology, I strive to help clients realize their value and their purpose. Identifying who we are, learning to trust our intrinsic self, and developing the courage to stand in our truth, I believe, are all at the core of living an authentically fulfilling life. No matter what concern, struggle, or trauma an individual is experiencing, or has experiences, we all long to be seen, heard, and understood exactly as we are. Counsellors at Intrinsic Psychology focus on helping individuals remove anything that lies in the way of their greatness and in identifying and nurturing who they have been all along.

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.

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.

I am an LGBTQ ally, and deeply respectful of a wide range of personal, cultural, and religious orientations.
OFFERING EVENING AND WEEKEND SESSIONS! I am a registered psychologist who has been working in the helping field for over twenty years. While much of this work has focused on supporting at risk youth and adults experiencing or engaging in intimate partner violence, in recent years I have built a clinical practice that includes counselling adults, teenagers, and families with various combinations of mental health, behavioural, addiction, trauma and relational issues. Along with adults, I especially enjoy working with teens, families, and people who don't like counsellors.
