Our feelings are a compass pointing toward personal growth and movement. I have learned to listen to and respect these feelings and I can help you to do the same. My approach is honed through years of clinical work with children and families. Through this developmental lens, I can help you bring context to your concerns, see unhelpful patterns, and change portions of the picture that don’t serve you so you can show up differently in small moments and in big ones.

(WAITLIST CLOSED) Sometimes it's difficult to get unstuck from our emotions, but try to think of them as waves of an ocean—coming and going, rising and falling... Never permanent and always moving. Experiencing your emotions and allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a true strength, not a weakness. Together, we can address personal difficulties, explore options, develop coping strategies, and identify strengths. Counselling and psychotherapy can promote healing, resiliency, and self-empowerment, and it is tailored to each client's individual and unique needs. What works for one client may not work for another.

OPEN TO NEW CLIENTS. For some reason, you're still doing what you're doing, even though it isn't helpful. While you know you need better coping strategies than food, dieting, exercise, alcohol, cocaine, or cannabis, challenging the way you're thinking hasn't worked. You might have seen a few therapists in the past or are even currently seeing someone for other reasons, but your problematic behaviours tend to go undiscussed - in part because you feel too guilty or ashamed to talk about them. Now you're ready to reclaim your life, though.

My central belief is that all problems are relational in nature. These issues originate from our unique personalities and upbringings from which we formulate our views about people and the world. The therapeutic environment provides a context within which our relational paradigms become the grist for the therapy mill. It is through this connection that we can become better at understanding ourselves in relation to our most significant interpersonal connections. In addition to a place where empathy is of greatest importance to establish the therapeutic bond, one must also be willing and open to challenging emotional comfort zones.

Counselling can be a powerful tool for facilitating change. I strive to co-create a therapeutic environment in which people can safely push their edges of self reflection and feel supported to deepen their awareness of themselves in relationship to self, intimate others, community and a broader sociopolitical context. My work is deeply shaped by queer-positive, anti-racist, and trauma-informed perspectives. I am experienced in working with issues related to migration & belonging, sexuality & gender, trauma, relationships, identity formation in youth, and dynamics between parents & adult children.

I have expertise working with individuals who have concerns about anxiety, depression, substance use, self esteem, gender identity and sexual orientation, relationship difficulties, loss and grief, relationship issues, and trauma. In couple therapy, I work with both partners to understand the current difficulties in the relationship. We work on understanding how current and past patterns of relating can affect the relationship and explore strategies that can help to strengthen communication and contribute to greater intimacy.

Some clients come to therapy because they need a chance to work through events that have had a negative influence on their wellbeing. Other clients may have never had a chance to know their own desire: what it is that they value and want out of life. Some clients come for support with a specific diagnosis, and others have a vague sense that something is just not right. Sometimes clients have found that they simply benefit from a place to focus on their own mental health.

We are all the products of our past, from experiences that happened so long ago that they escape memory to what happened just as we opened the door to the present moment. Early in our lives, we learn the skills we need to navigate the world we find ourselves in. Those skills stay with us and help protect us on our journey through life.
