About

Hello! I am a Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate (RCT-C) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT) currently offering virtual services for individuals 16 and older living in Nova Scotia. I strive to create a safe relational space in session, from which you can explore and process the emotions, stories, and experiences impacting your life. A space in which I can offer you, and you can offer yourself, curiosity, understanding, and compassion. I always want you to feel in control of the work we do together, as I see this work as deeply collaborative and understand that you are the expert in your own life.
I use an integrative approach that is informed by narrative therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), and anti-oppressive principals, . I have a particular interest in working with relational concerns (including friendship issues!), body image issues, gender, sexuality, trauma, and with neurodivergent folks.
If you are looking for some support navigating life in all its complexity, I encourage you to reach out for a free 20-minute consultation to explore if we might be a good fit to do some work together! I understand that building trust and safety in a new relationship takes time, and I invite you move at whatever speed feels comfortable. Take care.
