I have extensive experience supporting LGBTQ individuals including those in gender transition.
I believe that every person deserves to be treated with respect, to be listened to without judgment and to be given unconditional support and understanding. It is my priority to provide a safe, comfortable space where my clients can feel at ease, be their authentic selves and be able to openly express thoughts, concerns or self doubts. My goal is to be a guide for those who may be feeling a bit lost and to help them heal from the past, achieve positive change and move forward in a new direction with confidence in their own abilities.

During my career in Mental Health and Addictions I have worked with many different populations, though my passion has been working with people experiencing anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, folks in the LGBT2SQ community, and in recent years, a focus on working with Trans folks. Do you need help coping with anxiety, setting boundaries with those around you, or navigating changes in life situation? Are you coming out as LGBT2SQ and need support? Are you looking to transition and want a trans friendly therapist? Are you burned out at work and looking for someone to talk to? If so, I’d love to be of help.

I am a registered social worker with over 15 years of work experience. I have helped people who experience issues such as: depression, anxiety, addiction, abuse, trauma, anger, LGBTQ-related issues, relationship issues, grief, and family conflict. My journey into social work began at age 14, when I lost my father to cancer. Because there were few supports available at the time, I felt alone and stuck. This prompted me to dedicate my life to assisting others during difficult times, and help them realize they are not alone.

I am constantly working to support an anti-oppressive, feminist, open-minded, sex-positive, body-positive, LGBTQ+ space.
Video/phone counselling available in these challenging times. As we move through life, it's easy to get caught up taking care of everything and everyone at the exclusion of ourselves - yet caring for ourselves and our emotional well-being is the critical first step to having fulfilling and loving relationships. When we neglect ourselves, too often we are left feeling anxious, depressed, exhausted, or resentful. My passion is people. Listening, understanding and reflecting. Getting to the core of their needs and helping them glimpse courageously inside. With a dash of humour! Empowering!

Do you feel lonely in a crowd of people, feeling like you have had opportunity to make connections but have found it so hard in the moment to do anything but feel anxious or escape from the situation? Are you someone who feels like you’ve been placed in the middle of two seemingly opposing identities, gay and straight, racially white and black, cis and trans, social and isolated? Are you someone or are you a couple longing to build deeper connections to self and others and feeling like this is an impossibility? Are you finding yourself stuck in the same arguments, emotions and thoughts that make happiness feel so distance?

One of the most important aspects to my practice and in our work together is to create a space that fosters safety, trust and openness. When you are in a space where you’re able to access your authentic thoughts, feelings and experiences- that’s where real change and growth can happen! Throughout our lives we learn ways of navigating the world. Often we don’t have the opportunity or privilege to learn ways of coping and processing that serve us in a beneficial way. We do the best we can with the information we have at the time...and that’s surviving! I’d love to help you move from surviving to truly living!

Every session with me is different, based on where you're at and where you're headed. Sometimes you'll do the talking, and verbally purge your soul, while I hold a safe space for you to let it out. Other times, I'll take the lead and offer guidance, on any subject that is relevant or pressing. We can discuss physical ailments and their root cause, depression, trauma, anxiety, sexuality, relationships, and self love. I might teach you to meditate, we might discuss the concept of ego, manifesting, the law of attraction. We’ll dig into your subconscious programming and understand the makings of your challenges, behaviours and patterns.

Maybe you're contemplating a career change or craving something new in life, but are scared to take the next step. The pressures from family, friends & society make you feel confused and misguided. When we are feeling lost in life, we start to feel defeated, stressed out, and panicked, and this ultimately can lead to relationship tensions, difficult emotions, anxiety, and overall have us questioning "who am I" and "what do I want?"

If you’re tired of managing alone and want to find some peace or clarity in your life, you’ve come to the right place - change and healing are possible.

Often during life’s difficult transitions (e.g. grief, loss, divorce, new baby) you’re left feeling lonely, confused and even out of control. Things you once enjoyed may now feel overwhelming and stressful. Many of my clients complain of feeling exhausted, overcome with intense emotions and a general feeling of being "stuck".
