About

Hi there! Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my profile as you search for assistance. A little about myself: I am a registered clinic social worker, specialized in mental health. I am a highly compassionate and client-focused professional with demonstrated successes in counselling. I aim to provide excellent service by assessing mental and psychosocial needs as well as providing an eclectic approach to therapy. Working collaboratively with my clients, we find solutions to their concerns together in order to ensure feelings of safety, security and understanding.
I specialize in gender identity, trauma, anxiety, depression, and helping individuals as well as their families resolve conflicts. I have worked with all age groups and have experience in handling interpersonal as well as crisis situations. I primarily use a strengths based, solution focused approach to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Utilizing non-judgemental and kink-knowledgeable frameworks, I am comfortable in providing assistance to those who may not otherwise seek help, such as Trans* identified, polyamorous relationships, and the BDSM community.
