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 14 years of extensive experience working with children, teenagers and adults facing diverse challenges including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, substance use, and suicidal ideation. As a Queer therapist, I am passionate about working with fellow Queer/2SLGBTQ+ folks and allies, and love supporting clients throughout their identity journey.
With a Trauma-Informed Care approach, I incorporate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Parts Work, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotionally Focussed Therapy, and some Play Therapy for children and youth during my sessions. More importantly, I have a person-centered lens when I work with you and will adapt my style and approach to what works best for you!
I value building strong therapeutic relationships through a lens that is 2SLGBTQ+ 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.
