It is important to have a voice, a safe space to share thoughts and feelings and not be judged in any way. It is difficult to feel alone with worry, racing thoughts, emotional depletion, sadness and frustration. My connection to clients is gentle, soothing and supportive. I provide therapy to both children and adults. Healing is unique and possible for every individual.

*NO SPACE CURRENTLY* I enjoy working with women, trans and non-binary people who have had long-term mental health struggles and a history of trauma. The people I see are often struggling with understanding the impact of childhood wounds, stressful relationships involving difficulty with intimacy or autonomy, coping with the after-effects of sexual violence and/or feeling stuck in emotions such as shame and loneliness. These people may be trying to reconcile their values and desired way of being in the world with intense reactions that seem to come out of the blue. I also do work regarding gender, sexuality and neurodiversity.

I am gradually increasing my private practice hours to offer therapy to people who need more than what they can access through work benefits or community services. I have worked in mental health and employee assistance programs (EAP), and enjoy doing longer term therapy. Primarily, I work with adults who are struggling with mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and trauma, or who have concerns involving relationships or life changes they are working through. In my practice, I take an anti-oppression, culturally informed stance to peoples' issues and experiences, and continue to develop this area of learning.

You've learned to cope by controlling your feelings and while it's always worked for you in the past, lately it feels like the floodgate is going to break. You're often criticizing yourself and worrying about everything that could go wrong. You feel exhausted and overwhelmed and aren't sure how much longer you can keep the flood of emotions at bay. Before it all comes crashing down on you, you wisely know that it's time to make a change ... and you've come to the right place.
