PLEASE NOTE THAT I CURRENTLY HAVE A WAITING LIST FOR NEW CLIENTS. I take an affirming, client-centered approach to therapy that creates space for both meaning-making and a diverse range of identities. I have 13 years of experience in a health care context, working with people of varied ethno-cultural backgrounds journeying through a variety of life circumstances. I have also worked with 2SLGBTQ+ and gender variant people in group settings and individually, and am part of the Hamilton Trans Health Coalition. (Please note that I'm unable to diagnose gender dysphoria, but can refer.)

Areas of special interest/ experience include: grief/ loss; serious illness; end-of-life/ caregiver support; anxiety; depression; bipolar; borderline personality; dementia; coming out; gender questioning/ transition; internalized homo/ bi/ transphobia; partnered relationship therapy; and family therapy.

I bring a number of different therapeutic approaches and seek to fit the approach to the needs, preferences, and strengths of each client. The therapy space is accessible and in a building that is a positive space.
