When you live, love or have family ties outside the box of society's expectations, finding a therapist can be complex. You want someone who has experience with your areas of concern, and you also need to trust that you'll be safe from prejudice and ignorance while you're feeling vulnerable. It's not enough to find a counsellor who welcomes LGBTQ+ clients in their general practice, sometimes you want a therapist who is especially attuned to the unique strengths and challenges that come with gender, sexual and relational diversity. This is the work I am passionate about.

I work primarily with LGBTQ+ clients, their partners and families. My areas of special interest include individuals exploring their gender and sexual identity, families with youth coming out, intersections of minority stress and mental illness, couples coping with complex trauma, and folks with unconventional relationship structures, regardless of orientation.

I strive to become ever more aware of my own privilege and bias in order to work as respectfully as possible within an anti-oppressive and trauma-informed therapeutic context. Good fit is vital to good therapy, so I offer a free 30 minute consultation to all new clients.
