I support people in finding the sparkle, hope, and joy in life again. The weight of the world, trauma, and our personal experiences can sometimes be very heavy, which can lead to depression, anxiety, grief, loneliness, feeling numb or feeling burnt out. Counselling with me will strengthen the ways you cope, help you re-story what is going on for you (you are already the main character in your life!), and support you in changing negative or self-deprecating thought patterns.
I have been working with 2SLGBTQ+ communities since 2011 and have a lifetime of lived experience as a queer and trans disabled person of French, English, Irish and Germanic descent. I have been working in gender-affirming care since 2017 and provide counselling from an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, body positive, and trans intersectional feminist lens.
While the focus of my work is on 2SLGBTQ+ communities, I use what I have learned from these incredible communities to inform my work with straight, cis kinky folks, polyamorous folks, and others who have been othered by mainsteam white supremacist, hetero-patriachy. I have extensive experience working with family members and partners of trans folks.

Most of my clients have trauma and intersectional experiences of oppression, and because of the ways systems take power from people, it is very important to me to centre the client and their needs and wants, so we start where they want to start. I believe that trust is earned and some people take time to open up. I often give book or other recommendations that will be empowering for the client.
