I am a fat, queer woman with deep roots in the local community.
I'm a good fit for people who are seeking an affirming space that also pushes you to your next step. For people building the lives they want or considering taking steps in their lives - coming out, being authentic, sharing information with family members, improving your relationships, building your community. Many of my clients have connections to LGBTQ and two-spirit communities and issues. You have the wisdom of your own experience. As a therapist I am a safe partner in gaining confidence, stating your needs and working towards your goals.

), and LGBTQ + issues - in addition to the issues listed on this page.
Mental health concerns can come from many sources: lacking life direction, disconnection from emotions, inner conflicts, relationship problems, or traumatic life experiences to name a few. I can help you identify and resolve the roots of issues so that you can move beyond coping and toward change and healing. Because everyone has unique needs, concerns, and strengths, I will work with you to create a personalized treatment approach. This may involve reevaluating your thinking, working through complex emotions, understanding yourself better, or making peace with past experiences.

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.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. If you struggle to feel deserving of love, kindness and respect; to set healthy boundaries for yourself; if you're often hurt in relationships with partners, family, friends and co-workers, I may be the right therapist for you. In counselling, I can help you heal your relationship with yourself, feel empowered to have healthier relationships with others, and help you change beliefs that are no longer serving you. You can learn to have love, kindness and respect for yourself. I enjoy working with clients from many different walks of life, including folks who are part of the LGBTQ + community, and older adults.

Whether you or your family are traditional, queer /genderqueer, or neurodivergent, I can help.
Life at home is lonely. Nobody, not even your partner, understands what your life is really like. Autism, ADHD, OCD, anxiety... the laundry list of struggles in your life and family goes on and on. When you sit down to coffee with a friend and start to tell them about the complexities in your life and your relationship, and they look at you like you must be insane. You are barely holding it all together, and continuing on feels impossible. But you keep going, because you have to. What other options do you have? You feel exhausted, and more than that, you feel completely alone in the world.

My clients include those facing issues related to intergenerational trauma, residential schools, 60s scoop, addictions, family violence and systemic racism. I have experience working with trauma, sexual assault, grief and loss, separation/divorce, and the LGBTQ community.

As a queer , fat, person of colour, I am passionate about working with marginalized individuals. I know how hard it is to connect when your identity is questioned or misunderstood by service providers. I therefore work predominantly with folks who are racialized, 2SLGBTIQ, neurodivergent, and/or disabled. Often, those I work with have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder; experience identity-based trauma; struggle with relationships, emotional regulation, or impulsivity; want greater self-awareness or understanding; want to feel a sense of belonging, connection, and safety; or generally, want more joy in their lives.
