I have learned there is wisdom and resilience hidden in even the most painful of patterns, even when these patterns leave us trapped in destructive habits, despair or bad relationships. Once we find the wise intentions behind the old strategies, healing can happen. If you’re used to numbing out or criticizing yourself to get through the hard times – we’ll do it differently. Therapy with me is a judgment-free space to bring your sorrow, anxiety, anger and confusion without having to hide it or push through on your own.
I am passionate about helping people build an authentic and meaningful life. I use talk therapy, mindfulness (meeting present-moment experience with compassion and curiosity), somatic therapy (tuning into the body's wisdom) and an anti-oppression lens to help you find what works in your real life.
I bring two decades of meditation practice including nine years as a Buddhist monastic and an expressive arts practice into the work of psychotherapy along my own experiences of surviving cancer and being a queer, gender-fluid person. Outside of this practice, I teach mindfulness and meditation to people across North America and Europe.
