Announcement icon I am offering video sessions to build tools to support you with anxiety, trauma symptoms, overwhelm, relationship and parenting problems.
With warmth, compassion and skill I support clients to move through difficult periods and make desired life changes. I work with adults, youth and families to strengthen relationships, build skills to manage strong emotions, and navigate life transitions with resilience. I support people to develop tools to manage anxiety, depression and trauma symptoms. I specialize in work with LGBTQ2S+ communities. I provide exploratory gender counselling, second assessor letters to trans people and see partners/couples/kids/families working through the complexities of gender identity/transition on their relationships and/or on their parenting.
My style is warm, grounded and practical. My framework integrates learnings from neuroscience, attachment theories, trauma therapies, mindfulness, and somatic therapies; my lens is intersectional, anti-oppressive, and sex/kink/poly positive. I am an advanced practitioner of Attachment-Based Family Therapy, an evidence-based therapy for youth and parents.
I am currently working online and am pleased to support new clients to develop tools to manage anxiety and panic in these uncertain times. I love using my skills to assist people to tap into their strengths, find self-compassion, be their best selves in relationships, and live their fullest lives. Do not hesitate to reach out - I welcome your inquiries.
