I care about people living lives that are meaningful to them. It matters how people see themselves, their place in this world, and how we understand, or make sense of what has happened, and is happening in our lives. Working professionally as a social worker since 2016, I pride myself on being able to genuinely connect with others, listening, and creating space for people to fully be themselves, and to share the vulnerable pieces of their lives safely, and without judgment.
My educational and professional backgrounds are in psychology and social work, which has attuned me to the ways in which social systems of oppression create personal problems. Thus, I work to explore the personal struggles of your life, and am interested in consciousness raising, working from a holistic perspective to assess what factors are at play.
My experiences include working with people who are struggling with varied mental health, substance use, relationships, self-esteem and identity issues. I believe in the power of loving communities, and would be honored to be a part of your circle.

As a feminist therapist, I work to understand your personal experiences in broader contexts. I am trained in providing EMDR, which supports the processing of painful memories, and current dysfunction, while providing new adaptive perspectives and healing. I also integrate principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which looks at the ways our lives are influenced by how we feel, think, and act.
