Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and others. It is difficult to be in the world right now and the impending fear and anxiety around us can contribute to feelings of overwhelm and a sense of disconnect from ourselves and others. This might have us feeling hopeless, isolated or 'stuck'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.
I am a registered Clinical Social Worker Psychotherapist who works from an anti-oppressive, anti-shame, trauma-informed lens. I have completed advanced training in Narrative Therapy, Sex Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy, and Somatic Experiencing. I am also kink and poly informed, and affirmative.
Though my practice centres LGBTQ/queer and trans folks I am also open to working with individuals of all identities and social locations. I draw from a number of theoretical frameworks. We will work together to figure out which holds most resonance for you. *Sliding scale spots are reserved for BIPOC community members*.
