I work with families of gender dysphoric or transgender youth within a trans-inclusive, safe, caring space.
I provide therapy for children and youth who are experiencing a number of life challenges, such as anxiety, stress, trauma or divorce. Children are ideal candidates for early intervention and lasting change is often realized in a short amount of time. In my work with teens, I use a holistic, mindful approach, offering them tools and guidance. Through exploring their life experiences, values and unique strengths, teens develop self-awareness, confidence and self-regulation. I work with adoptive children and families to create safe, loving attachments when there has been complex trauma and disrupted attachment relationships.

I have also worked with LGBTQ and transgender clients.
My counselling approach is built on something called unconditional positive regard. I am a non-judgemental listener who likes to use kindness, support and sometimes even humour to build relationships with my clients. I use a wide range of counselling practices depending on client needs. My clients are anyone who is wrestling with any aspect of their life and would like to solve the issues contributing to it. I will work with you to identify specific problems and issues and then find the best counselling theory and practice to help you solve your issues. My specialty has been culture & identity.

I draw on the commonalities that exist between therapeutic approaches, and am aligned with anti-oppression perspectives. I utilize deep, introspective practices and pragmatic, solution-oriented practices to help clients cultivate greater self-compassion; achieve greater effectiveness in their relationships and communities; and grow towards deeper fulfillment in their lives. I am also able to offer a truly holistic therapy, combining talk therapy, mindfulness, and movement. I am a good fit for those impacted by marginalization, those with shame and self-esteem challenges, those impacted by trauma and addiction, and for couples.

Hello, and welcome. You may be interested in coming to therapy because you're feeling lonely, unsatisfied in your relationships, suffering from a difficult life event, or wondering if life can be better. There is no problem too big or too small to bring. I provide a space for you to be seen and be known. To say, and feel, what is difficult. To find what gives you hope. I seek to understand your unique experience and what may be preventing you from living your life more authentically. Together we look at ways you protect yourself and whether these ways are still serving you.

Have you ever felt like no one understands what you're going through? Or stuck because you aren't sure who you are, what you want, or how to heal past wounds? You're not alone. I became a counsellor because I have also been there and understand how difficult it can be. I want to help. Whether you are feeling disconnected from yourself, isolated in relationships, or a larger sense of overwhelm and uncertainty in today's world, you deserve a safe space to be heard, supported, and understood.

In my sessions, I want clients to feel truly listened to. Therapy, in my view, is a space for a client to experience empathetic and genuine attention which may be rarely found in everyday life. With this kind of attention, people can face problems and develop strengths much more easily than on their own. Ultimately, my goal is to help people get to the point at which they can manage their mental health without me, by using the tools and skills we develop during our sessions.

Welcome. My intention is to offer a safe place for you to enter into a journey of healing. My hope is that you and I can create a positive environment where we can work together on the issues and challenges that have brought you here. . I practice from a critical feminist perspective, which means I do not think I am an expert, but that we form knowledge and mutual curiosity and in doing so, I hope, we arrive at a place of healing and enlightenment for you.

Life isn’t always hard, but when things get challenging, when feelings of anxiousness and despair seem overwhelming, seeing a counsellor can help. Having a place to say it all out loud can be the gateway to better emotional and mental health. Sorting through and dealing with issues of anger, abandonment, fear, trauma and hopelessness can help you restore balance in your life. We can work together to find your way forward.

I believe that therapy is a great place for self-exploration, discovery and healing. An important part of my work is being an advocate and an ally. As your therapist, I believe in providing a safe, validating, non-judgmental space for you to have the opportunity to share your story and be heard.

My ideal clients range in age from adolescents through adulthood, including couples and families. They may have a past history of trauma or grief, or perhaps they are presently struggling with symptoms of ADHD, life changes, or a breakdown of a key relationship. They may be feeling completely overwhelmed and unsure where to go next. They will be open to trying new ideas to help them on the path to feeling better, but will not be worried about talking to me when certain strategies that do not work for them, as they will know it is best that we use techniques that they are comfortable with and will use.

I work with adults and older teens, including individuals and relationships, who feel overwhelmed with stress or anxiety, are lacking motivation, and perhaps even feel stuck and are not sure where to turn for support. Many of my clients have experienced anxiety, depression or issues in their relationships. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them identify the issues and areas that are keeping them stuck. Considering your unique needs and goals, we will create a plan to help you recover feelings of wellbeing and wholeness, and feel more fulfilled in your life.

How many people are willing to understand the true feelings in a person's heart? I believe it is easy to define psychological illness, but it is very hard to find out a person's true feelings. This is the biggest challenge for one’s career. With that in mind, I work to understand all feelings and help all my clients learn to work through their difficulties to gradually become internally independent until they no longer need me.

WelcoIme! My name is Tracy and I want to first and foremost acknowledge this important step you are taking for your mental well being. Admitting to yourself that you need outside support is not an easy task. I can appreciate how hard it must be to decide where you can go to confide in someone. I want you to know that building a relationship is of utmost importance to me. I want you to feel you have found a safe place where your innermost thoughts and feelings are heard without judgement.
