I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma and PTSD, addiction, life transitions, grief and loss, family conflict and relationship issues. Together we will identify the barriers that limit you, shift negative thoughts, feelings and patterns, process old wounds and deepen your understanding of how you connect with yourself, others and the world around you.

**Please note that my practice is full and I am not currently offering new client intakes or a waitlist. However, I will still accept a limited number of trans and/or nonbinary clients requiring a secondary assessor letter for OHIP-covered surgery.** About you: through your whole life up to now, you have found ways to survive, to navigate and to find ways to be okay. These strategies may not be working or they are leaving you feeling trapped. Maybe you have known for a long time that your gender deserves authentic expression, and you are looking to better understand what that means or take your life to the next step.

*CURRENTLY ONLY ACCEPTING NEW CX FOR JULY* A lesson that has stood out to me in practice, is to engage with therapeutic work that has relevance within my own lived experience. Trauma and loss have always been a prominent part of my life and within my own context, I have struggled with how chaotic, isolating and unknown these experiences can be. A small insight that has aided me in processing hardship, is that these experiences are human and that our grieving process should be treated gently. This can be difficult to recognize and do on our own. I aim to help nurture and normalize this experience.

Our experiences shape us. The residue of the past can stick to us in different ways: feeling numb or feeling so much intense emotion that it's hard to cope; difficulty setting boundaries or struggling to bring people close; feeling unsafe, fearful, and distrusting; self-doubt and shame; having a hard time allowing creativity, calm, and joy. It's so easy to forget that even in the most painful, lonely, and violent moments of our lives, we were growing. I fundamentally believe that we are resilient as hell. We learned to survive! And perhaps survival mode is now getting in the way of feeling truly alive, present, and connected.

In my practice as a psychotherapist and art therapist I have learned to collaborate between myself and clients. I support clients in their own narrative building, self-exploration, and personal healing by integrating psychotherapy techniques with visual art-making. I often work with people who are processing transitionary moments in life, such as: attending post-secondary school, transitioning careers, end of life stages (death and dying, bereavement & grief, loss), and exploring gender and personal identity. There is no need to have any background in visual art, I welcome all levels of experience to try art therapy.

It is seeming all too normal these days to experience feelings of disconnection. A separation from ourselves, our passions, our bodies, our communities, etc. We spend so much time in our heads trying to figure out how to survive when we so desperately want to be thriving. Where has our aliveness gone? How do we get our bodies and our senses back online and truly show up for our unique experience?

It can be pretty daunting to imagine telling a stranger about deeply personal issues. And will it really help? In my own life and in the lives of my clients I have so often seen counselling ease the difficulties life throws at us, make the way forward a little clearer, lay old hurts to rest. If you and I together can build a trusting, respectful "working alliance", I'd say - and much research agrees - that it's likely to make a difference in your life. In this time of pandemic old fears and worries resurface, close relationships struggle, loneliness bites. A place with no judgement to talk it all through can make a real difference.
