When relationships become complicated or unsafe, it can be hard to figure out what is going on or what to do. Women who experience difficult relationships are faced with an overwhelming range of emotions, challenges, and obstacles. My goal is to create a safe environment for women who are experiencing relationship issues, including abuse, to process their experiences and reconnect with who and how they want to be in the world. People I work with say I am warm, grounded, supportive, non-judgemental, resourceful, creative, and hopeful. My primary areas of interest are difficult relationships, abuse, religious trauma, grief, loss.

You matter and you deserve to experience the transformative possibilities of a strong therapeutic relationship. My passion is supporting people with marginalized identities and their allies.

I invite Muslim women , girls, seniors, couples, parents, youth and children to take our counselling services.
Peace be on you dear readers. I really congratulate you for taking the first step: looking for a counsellor. Seeking counselling is a sign of strength. It means that you want to see changes in your life. You may be dealing with depression, anxiety, panic attack, and or relationship issues or you may need to talk to someone who will not judge you. I believe everyone has ability to solve their own problems, however, sometimes overwhelming situation makes us stuck in one point and hinder us to go forward. In those days we need someone listen to us, hold our hands and to go through our difficult times. I am here for you.

For the past 20 years, I have been providing culturally-sensitive individual, couple, and family therapy to women , men, and LGBTQ2S+ persons — from youth to elderly.
If you are looking for that "safe place" to share without judgment or criticism, look no further. I know first-hand how difficult it can be to open up to someone about life's most private issues and challenges - as well as how much relief and peace can come after doing so. Whether you desire to quickly resolve a current issue or obstacle, or hope to identify and overcome some deeper, longer-standing issues that are preventing a full and satisfying life, together we can help you get there with YOU as expert of your own life!

I currently run all the Healing Anger women ´s anger management groups online. My clients are ready to explore and learn how to better deal with difficult emotions and situations. Whether their tendency is to rage often or to secretly feel resentment, or if dealing with someone acting this way, they all want to benefit from exploring their relationship with anger and other difficult emotions. My clients want to learn about intimate relationships, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution. My clients want to take ownership of their life, feel proud of their respectful choices, and at peace, rather than ashamed of how they responded.

I use my own experience as a feminist, cisgender, pan/bisexual, femme, and poly woman to inform my practice.
Currently have space for client's requesting in-person counselling. Life can feel incredibly painful when we are feeling stuck, disconnected, isolated, and ridden with distressing thoughts, memories and emotions. Together, we can make space for the parts of you needing to express that pain. By experiencing, and embracing the disenfranchised parts of you, we can move into a life rich with meaning and fulfillment.

I have gained an understanding of how my own intersecting identities as a white, cisgender woman , uninvited settler, and mother all impact how I perceive the world around me.
Trauma impacts how we see the world, navigate through our experiences, and connect with others. Even though you are not the product of a single experience or relationship, one experience can feel so overwhelming that it overtakes over all others. Together, you can start to dream about what life will look like if this problem or memory wasn't an obstacle anymore. What would be different? And what strengths and resources do you already carry with you to start that process.

Life can be challenging, and you deserve support. Yet, we as women feel guilty for prioritizing ourselves all too often. We are used to putting others’ needs and comfort before our own. Perhaps you notice being very critical of yourself. Maybe you’re struggling with your relationships, life changes or overwhelming emotions like anxiety, anger or shame. You might be asking yourself: “Who am I? Is this the life I want?” I want you to know that you don’t have to deal with it alone.

You are a bicultural millennial woman looking to develop a healthier relationship with yourself. You had to grow up quickly due to difficult experiences in your childhood or family, so you took on the role of being Strong. For a long time, you held everything in, minimized your needs, and bottled up your emotions because that was what you had to do to get by. Lately, you’ve started to feel the toll of living this way. Suppressing your emotions has caused undue stress on your body; constantly keeping up an “image” or chameleon-ing around others has become exhausting; most of all, you’re tired of not having space for you.

I work from a commitment to liberatory, anti-oppression and anti-racist healing practices as a white cis-gendered woman therapist.
My approach is collaborative- meaning sessions will feel conversational in style, will always involve humor and I will ask questions to help you recognize themes in your experience and bodily sense. I work from the stance that therapists are often too quick to consider individuals' concerns solely as matters of personal psychology. My philosophy and commitment is to also weigh the social and political aspects of your experience. Our symptoms (sadness, worry, etc.) must be addressed seriously, but we must also acknowledge the contributions of a persons' entire context (political setting, cultural background, race, gender, sexuality,
