I excel at assisting clients with gender dysphoria /identity/sexual orientation.
I believe clients have the inherent ability to create change. It takes courage to step forth and request support which leads to strength and a desire to create new ways of being. Through a meaningful and collaborative therapeutic relationship, I provide a safe and inclusive space for clients to grow and reach their desired potential and authentic self. I provide support to individuals/families that are experiencing challenges/changes within their lives (i.e., gender dysphoria /identity, sexual orientation, anxiety, depression, internalized homophobia/transphobia, coming to terms/coming out, trauma, self-harming, suicidal ideation).

Accepting Clients to Waitlist for August - You feel overwhelmed and defeated. No matter how hard you try, you feel like you are never good enough. You struggle to live up to the expectations that you have for yourself and that everyone seems to have for you. These feelings show up in many aspects of your life - how you relate to your body, your relationships, your career, and your overall identity. Maybe the seeds of self-doubt were planted by a well-meaning person in your life. Maybe they come from your social media feed or societal expectations to be perfect. You wish you could let go of the pressure and live more authentically.

At times anxiety, depression and/or trauma may impede an individual's natural ability to cope. I believe when a safe and supportive environment is created, individuals may openly explore their struggles and find healthier ways of coping. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families with disabilities, neurodevelopmental disorders, and brain injury/stroke. For the past four years I have specialized in supporting sexual and gender minority children, youth, and families.

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 work with clients ages 14 and up, online and in-person. I welcome your whole self in our sessions, including intersectional identities, contradictions, uncertainty, and tender feelings. I also welcome people who are hesitant about seeing a counsellor, or who’ve had difficult experiences accessing mental health support in the past. My aim is for our sessions to be an empowering experience for you. My practice is influenced by creativity and the arts, and I seek to accompany people in healing according to their own values, and through experiences of dignity and possibility.

I've helped thousands like you as a Mental Health and Addictions Counsellor for the past 20 years, and as a first-gen immigrant parent that understands intergenerational and systemic challenges. I'm trained in many evidence-based treatment modalities (DBT, Mindfulness, ACT, Grief & Loss) but it is my relatable approach that brings ease to clients wary of taking the first step.

Stress can impact the whole person and trauma can turn one's world upside down. Sexual and physical assault, combat, or serious accidents are all examples of traumatic events that can cause an array of distressing symptoms. Anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares along with nausea, and chronic muscle tension are common. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and PTSD and I can help you learn new ways of managing stressful memories and feelings. My experience working with combat veterans and survivors of recent and childhood sexual abuse also provides much needed insight and sensibility into these matters.

I also support you to communicate with those in your life who are struggling to understand how to help. In working with me, you'll finally let out a breath that's been stuck in your chest for far too long.

If you have had traumatic or painful events. if you are in toxic relationships, or if you have addictions, keep reading because I may be able to help you. On a warm Tuesday morning in September, my mother died after a period of great suffering. I could not imagine my life without her, and I did not have any idea how my life was going to continue. Her doctor encouraged me to see my mother’s death as though it had brought her freedom. Freedom was a concept that I had never known before; sadness and pain were what I knew. On that day, I started my search of freedom until I found it years later.
