About

Welcome, and thanks for visiting my profile. First, I'd like to share a few words about my personal counselling style to help you determine if we could be a good fit. My clients and friends describe me as warm, friendly, down-to-earth, encouraging, kind and humorous. I aim to create a counselling space that feels respectful, safe, open, authentic and flexible. As we work together, you can expect me to meet you as a fellow traveler. We all experience ups and downs in this life. I draw from my own lived experience in a way that helps me relate to my clients in a genuine and meaningful way.
I work with adults (18+) to address concerns related to ADHD, gender identity, emotion regulation, anxiety, mood, relationships, trauma, bereavement, life transitions, and self-worth. My therapeutic approach is grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I draw on a variety of mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, and strengths-based techniques.
My goal is to create an environment where you feel safe and supported to be yourself. Together we'll examine what's truly important to you, and explore how you can live your life in-line with your own personal values. If you’re ready to start counselling and think my style sounds like a good fit, I'd be very happy to hear from you.
