Announcement icon To help curb the spread of COVID19, I'm currently providing online video sessions over "Zoom." It is free to download and easy to use.
I work mostly with adults, couples and families, as well as with other therapists (who need a safe space to talk too!) I aim to approach conversations through a non-pathologizing, respectful lens and to honour people's lived experience. Those who consult me come in to discuss a broad spectrum of issues, such as: depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, grief/loss, relationship difficulties, self-doubt, crises of identity, body image struggles, and experiences of injustice based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation/identity, etc.
It's my continuing goal to richly acknowledge the effects and context of problems people are up against, to prioritize the skills, values, and commitments they've held onto despite the difficulties, the ideas and people that have supported them to move in their preferred directions, as well as their continued hopes for the future.
In my therapy practice, it's important to me that any problems being faced are considered within the political, social, and cultural contexts in which they're occurring, and it is my hope that through deeper listening, the crafting of good questions and through curiosity, better conversations can emerge.
