Therapy feels weird. At its core, it involves divulging the things we usually reserve for the safety of our journals (or our very attentive pets) to a total stranger. As someone who has been on both sides, I can promise that I understand how hard it is to take that first leap and book an appointment with someone. There are always internal questions about whether or not this person will bet he right fit or if you'll be starting over with someone new in a few weeks and having to retell your story. As a therapist, I pride myself in being open and authentic with the folks I work with.
I never pretend to know all of the answers, but will always gladly walk alongside you as we figure them out. Therapy is a collaborative process, and only part of our journey. I would describe my style as being person-centered, I follow your lead and help you reframe and integrate your experiences in a way that best suites your personality and needs.
My primary goal is to provide a space where you feel safe. Safe to unmask, safe to share what is on your mind, and safe to process trauma you have experienced in the past. I am quirky, neuro-divergent, kink-allied, and 2SLGBTIA+ safe. It is always an honour to be trusted with someone's stories and experiences, and I would love to get to know yours.

I strive to make therapy feel less cold and clinical, and more like you're talking to someone you know (except with very clear boundaries and some gentle pushback when needed). I co-construct goals with you for the things you want to work on, and when relevant may highlight some patterns across the issues you discuss in order to help you build them.

I like to describe myself as kind of eclectic when I am able to be (some issues- Like Trauma- require more specific modalities). I draw on different modalities depending on the person that is in front of me and what their goals look like. Often this looks like some combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
