About

Insta: CollaborateCounselling. I am queer, transgender, autistic, and have ADHD. These intersecting identities shape my experiences and influence my therapy approach. I am an open minded and inclusion driven practitioner who wants you to feel validated and supported. I aim to create a comfortable space for you to navigate your thoughts and emotions. I own Collaborate Counselling. Where I collaborate with you to find which treatment works best for your unique needs. I also work for the kind and empathetic, Jessica Jones, RP, with Psykhe Psychotherapy, so that I can continue to learn from other psychotherapists as I continue to grow.
I began studying mental health/psychology 10 years ago at the University of Waterloo. I work directly on the front lines as a Crisis Clinician with CMHA Thames Valley where my skills are constantly challenged and strengthened. 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. My favourite way to destress is spending time in nature with my partner. What are some of your favourite ways to destress? Can I help you find some more ways?
