Announcement icon I am happy to meet with you online or by phone at this time. Beginning in September, I will be offering limited in person sessions.

About

Compassion. Challenge. Joy. Working together, we will co-create a place for you to build clarity in your life. You will be invited to gain more self-compassion and acceptance. We will work with your thoughts, relationship patterns, and unexpressed feelings through talk and sensation awareness. My approach is warm, honest, playful, and embodied. It is important to me that you experience changes through our work that support your ongoing well being and engagement with life.
My personal life informs my practice so I am happy to share some of that with you. I am a single mother by choice who is actively engaged in ideas around parenting young children. I am a cancer survivor. I am a movement meditator, having engaged for two decades with meditation movement practice. I am bisexual and trans-allied.
I offer clinical supervision to RP(Q)s, RPs and social workers in the controlled act of psychotherapy. I am on the faculty of the Gestalt Institute of Toronto and worked at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health for over a decade. I have extensive experience incorporating evidence based treatment within a primarily somatic based, Gestalt perspective.
