I believe that choosing to tell and own our story is the bravest thing we will ever do. My commitment is to create a safe, non-judgemental, and warm place where you can feel seen and fully heard. In my clinical practice, it is a privilege and pleasure to work with youth (16 yrs+), adult individuals, and couples. I support people as they work through various mental health difficulties, relational issues, sexuality, LGBTQ issues, overwhelming experiences, and identity. I have a special interest and research focus on emotion regulation issues (uncontrolled/overcontrolled emotion), intimacy, shame, and anxiety disorders.

My practice centres LGBTQ/queer and trans folks as my priority client population. Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and others. It is difficult to be in the world right now and the impending fear and anxiety around us can contribute to feelings of overwhelm and a sense of disconnect from ourselves and others. This might have us feeling hopeless, isolated or 'stuck'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.
