About

How many of us focus solely on the problems we experience in our lives, while leaving out so much of our narrative, such as our hopes for ourselves, the ways that we survive life's challenges and our commitment to doing the work of healing even when it feels hard? Rather than focusing on “problems/behaviours”, I will explore with you the needs that your coping skills meet, and work on developing more adaptive ways of meeting those same needs. I will work collaboratively with you to explore stuck points, and look at the many different social factors that precipitate and maintain your sense of "stuckness"
My approach to the work is trauma focused, meaning that I acknowledge and honour all the ways that trauma can impact a person and that the ways that people cope and feel are understandable reactions to events that have happened to them. I am trained in several different therapeutic modalities and we will decide collaboratively the approach that works best.
As a queer white femme, my social work practice is rooted in a commitment to social justice, holding space and promoting health and wellness of QTBIPOC, 2SLGBTQIA, and other marginalized communities. I work collaboratively with you to minimize barriers to counselling, recognizing the ways that different intersections can impact access to health care.
