Pronouns: he/him or they/them. Reaching out can be difficult, but I am glad to see that you did. I am queer, transgender, autistic, and have ADHD. These intersecting identities shape my experiences and influence my therapy approach. I work with clients from Ontario and Saskatchewan. I aim to create a comfortable space for you to navigate your thoughts and emotions. As someone who has accessed mental health services, I know how important it is to feel heard by your therapist. Because of this, I work with you to ensure you are feeling effectively supported and comfortable. Social media: Tik Tok and Instagram: rainbowgalaxyocunselling
I began studying mental health and psychology 10 years ago at the University of Waterloo. I have gained invaluable experience at the reputable mental health agencies including Lutherwood and CMHA. I offer free, 15 minute consultations so you can be sure you feel good about our therapeutic relationship before we begin. :)
Others often describe me as being warm, open, and comforting. With every client, I want to ensure that I make the therapeutic space uniquely comfortable for their individual needs and requests. As someone who has navigated the mental health system as a client, I know how important it is to have someone who cares about your unique needs.
