Announcement icon During this time of social distancing, I'm meeting with clients within Ontario by VSee, a PHIPA compliant video platform, and by phone.
People may come to therapy because they feel overwhelmed or stuck, or want to foster healing and growth. My approach is affirming, collaborative, emotion focused, and integrative, creating space for meaning-making and a diverse range of identities. I have 13 years of experience in health care, working with people of varied ethno-cultural backgrounds. I've also worked with 2S and LGBTQ+ 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.) My office is in a building that is accessible and a positive space.
Areas of special interest/ experience include: grief/ loss; serious illness; end-of-life/ caregiver support; anxiety; depression; bipolar; borderline personality; trauma/ (C-)PTS; ADHD; coming out; gender questioning/ transition; internalized homo/ bi/ transphobia; spiritual concerns/ abuse/ trauma; 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. My role is to facilitate people safely exploring emotions and experiences to connect with their own solutions, resources, and insights, with the goal of experiencing greater freedom and personal empowerment.
