About

As a Psychotherapist, I strive to provide a safe, judgement-free, compassionate and growth-focused space for my clients, where their voices can be heard and encouragement is given to explore new ways of relating to difficult thoughts, feelings, memories and experiences. I have many years of extensive experience working with children, teenagers, adults and families facing diverse challenges including, but not limited to: coping difficulties, anxiety, substance use, depression and suicidality, and behavioural concerns.
A few of the modalities I incorporate during my sessions are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotionally Focussed Therapy, Play Therapy for children and youth and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
I value building strong therapeutic relationships through a lens that is LGBTQ2S+ affirming, trauma-informed, non-pathologizing, anti-oppressive, and welcoming of varied family and relationship configurations. I am committed to ongoing (un)learning work and engagement with intersectional feminism, systemic inequalities, and harm reduction principles.
