About

My philosophy is, you are not broken, you are not something to be fixed! There is something you are wanting to change. That is the focus of what we can work on together. All individuals seeking assistance to navigate their life's journey are welcomed. I listen to what your needs are, help provide you with tools to find a path to break down barriers that are keeping you from living your best life. I believe a counsellor and a client must be able to establish a trusting relationship to make the most of the time spent together. I offer structured/non structured therapies depending on the needs of the clients.
I offer a safe and welcoming space where clients can be reflective and share to their comfort levels. I specialize in gender and sexuality exploration and identity. Sessions currenlty are via ZOOM or by phone
I have extensive knowledge working with those who identify in the 2SLGBTQI community and their families/ significant others. I specialize in transgender care. I am qualified to complete Secondary sign off funding for OHIP and provide surgeon letters for Gender Affirming surgeries. I identify as queer trans masculine person.
