About

Please reach out if you would like to be notified when I am accepting new clients. As a therapist, I am here to work with you to overcome the challenges that you are facing. Whether you are struggling with depression or anxiety, thoughts about suicide, challenges related to chronic illness or disability, interpersonal and relationship issues, cultural identity, immigration, sexuality, gender identity, grief and loss, or difficult emotions, we will work together to build up your resources and your resilience.
My approach is rooted in neurobiology and existential philosophy and I draw from cognitive, behavioural and narrative techniques to help you make sense of your experiences in the world. I help you to become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour. Together we reflect on how you would like to change and what that change might look like.
As a Canadian-born mixed-race queer of Caribbean descent, I am sensitive to the ways that race, class, diaspora, sexuality, and gender shape our experiences of the world. I am drawn to this work in order to facilitate healing and growth after trauma, especially intergenerational trauma. My goal is to help you chart the course of your healing journey.
