Connecting to a therapist, whether it’s your first time or not, can be a daunting and deeply vulnerable task. This is true for all, but especially for transgender youth, or their caregivers. Finding the “right fit” in a therapeutic connection is an important part of the process. My goal within a therapeutic connection is to bring gentle curiosity, patience, and deep care as we journey through therapy together. I have formal clinical training in several different evidence-based counselling modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS)
I primarily draw on these modalities to support folks, and continue to grow competencies in other modalities. I have deep passion and interest in somatics based practices, and am working on building competency with somatics trainings in order to begin utilizing a more holistic body based approach to my work.
My practice has typically focused on supporting trans folks, as well as parents and caregivers of queer and trans youth when in the process of understanding how to best show up for their young person in their identities.  If it feels like I might be a good fit, please reach out to set up a free 15 minute consultation.
