"Some clients come to therapy because they need a chance to work through events that have had a negative influence on their wellbeing. Other clients may have never had a chance to know their own desire: what it is that they value and want out of life. Some clients come for support with a specific diagnosis, and others have a vague sense that something is just not right. Sometimes clients have found that they simply benefit from a place to focus on their own mental health. "

"I offer relational psychotherapy, a gentle, client-centred approach that provides space to explore issues creating difficulties for you, work to understand their roots, and support you in making the changes you wish to make. Whether you're struggling with difficult feelings or relationships, a current crisis, or issues from the past, this is a space where you can sift through your feelings and thoughts with connection and support. My style as a therapist is warm, open and accepting. I practice within a trauma-sensitive, anti-oppression, LGBTQ*-affirming framework. "
