To me, therapy is hearing your story and working through your concerns together in a safe and confidential space. I have experience working with difficulties regulating emotions, queer and identity issues, addictions, depression, anxiety and trauma, and the other topics listed on my profile. If you don’t see the topic you’re reaching out for, contact me to discuss! In addition to therapy, I have conducted assessments (including Transition Related Surgery [TRS]), and co-facilitated support groups on topics such as mood, body image, and substance and behavioural addictions (e.g., crystal meth and sex [PnP / chemsex]).

Life is full of challenges, but you don’t have to face them alone. In counselling, you have the opportunity to work with someone who can help you find solutions to the challenges in your life by assessing your needs and strengths, exploring possible options with you, providing you with information and resources, and/or supporting you with developing coping strategies. In my practice, I apply knowledge and skills gained from my education, employment, and ongoing learning while also drawing on my lived experience as a queer guy who has struggled with challenges related to mental health, trauma, family conflict, and other experiences.

I have ten years of experience in the mental health field, beginning in working with refugees abroad. This lead me to research treatment development for survivors of sexual trauma. I have been most drawn towards working with clients who are processing trauma, anger, perfectionism, ADHD, and/or sex life (LGBTQ+ friendly). However, my experience extends beyond these populations, and I strive to stay open to the wisdom gained through working with a wide range of demographics and therapeutic approaches.

As a queer person, I am familiar with this experience and understand these reservations.
*Currently not accepting new clients. If you would like to go on a wait list, please email*. You might be here because you are searching for someone to help you with how you're feeling. You may feel anxious, depressed, stressed, or 'stuck' and are hoping to find a compassionate listener who can help. Perhaps you're dealing with significant life transitions, marginalization, interpersonal conflict, finding your purpose, or competing priorities. I know that bringing these complex issues and feelings to therapy can be scary. I also know that there is profound healing power in being courageous, listened to, validated, and encouraged.

I work with depression, anxiety, serious illness, life change, grief, and gay/lesbian/bisexual issues.
At the moment I am unable to take any new clients. The psychotherapy I provide goes well beyond the simple ways we often think about ourselves: depressed, anxious, traumatized etc. These are useful labels but for each person there is a whole lifetime leading up to those ideas. You can think about them alone, but talking with the safety and care that I provide makes all the difference. Psychotherapy is about how you talk to me, what you say, when you say it and the confidentiality creates a space where we can bring all the ways you may be with me to awareness.

I've worked the LGBTQ community and those navigating an HIV diagnosis, I am sensitive to my client's unique experiences, and work from an anti-oppressive framework.
Deciding to seek support is not always easy. Typically it's made when a conflict gets to the point where it can no longer be managed alone. Once the decision has been made, there can be fear or unease around talking about vulnerable emotions or life situations. I recognize the courage that it takes to reach out for help, and endeavour to work from a framework of empowerment so clients can uncover their inherent strengths and abilities. Solutions to our troubles often lie within, however the journey to uncovering these is one that many people struggle to walk alone.
