Do you want to know yourself better? Are you looking to understand how your past relationships and experiences are impacting your present? Maybe you feel like you’ve lost touch with who you are, and need help finding yourself again? Do you feel stuck, and have no idea how to even start to get unstuck? Whether you already know exactly what you want to work on or have no idea where to start, you’re not alone and you deserve support. Together we can explore your past so you don’t have to feel held back by it anymore, identify behaviour patterns you want to change, and come up with goals that align with the life you want to live.
I work one-on-one with adults and young adults, fellow LGBTQIA+ folks and our allies. I always aim to create a safe, judgement-free space so we can build a genuine therapeutic relationship and you can feel heard, supported, and able to talk about anything. This way, we can get to the root cause of your pain, and you can start healing instead of just coping.
Asking for help can be hard, and I believe that you can do hard things. I’m here to help you strengthen your relationship with yourself. If this sounds like the kind of support you’re looking for, I would be happy to chat with you so we can see if we’re a good fit. I invite you to schedule a free 15-minute consultation call with me so we can get started!

I'm passionate about supporting people who are working to unlearn behaviours and thought patterns that are holding them back, and folks who are going through challenging transition periods in their lives. I also have experience working with individuals who suspect they have ADHD or have been diagnosed with ADHD later in life and are learning to manage their symptoms.

There's no such thing as "one size fits all" when it comes to therapy, so I use an eclectic approach; I use strategies from a variety of evidence-based therapies so your treatment plan is tailored to your specific needs. Our work together will start with developing trust and exploring your history with curiosity so we can work together to figure out what strategies will work the best for you.
