I am a non-binary and queer registered social worker who works with children, youth, adults, families and seniors. Drawing from multiple therapeutic frameworks, I offer clients a counselling practice that is non-judgemental, socially-minded, stigma-free, anti-oppressive and anti-racist, sex-positive, and supportive of those who use substances. I work with people who identify as monogamous, non-monogamous, polyamorous, and who are engaged with other non-traditional relationship forms. I take a collaborative approach to my counselling and aim to meet the client where they are at.

I approach counselling from a lens that is grounded in the continued practice of anti-racism, disability justice, queer theory, sex positivity, and that recognizes the systemic violence that has, and continues to, harm us and impact our experiences in the world, and inside ourselves. The main niche of folks that I have had the honour of working with over the years have been queer and trans folks, sex workers, disabled folks, non-traditional relationship networks, kink and bdsm communities, BIPOC folks, folks navigating complex trauma, and those living at the intersections of many of these identities.

I work with individuals who practice kink or people who love the vanilla experience.
In a society that stigmatizes everyone who is different from the norm, it is very easy to feel like an outcast. From being shamed by society to being told that you are not of value, many people face a life filled with anxiety, depression, and shame. Stigma and Minority Stressors cause so many issues for marginalized individual that they may not even feel comfortable seeking the help they need. They just want a therapist or provider that will not stigmatize them and assume the their lifestyle choices are the problem. They want to work on the problem that they present with.

Stressful situations can eat away at our ability to cope and function, or we can get stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking, behaving, and relating to others that interfere with our living a meaningful life. It can be scary to think about making changes. I will take time to listen and understand your situation so we can identify and move towards your goals. Together, we can learn how you respond to stressful situations and relationships, and find new ways of coping to build a life worth living. I believe everyone has the capacity to heal and grow: my job is to create a space where you are empowered and supported in this journey.

I believe that each us carries inherent goodness inside of us, and sometimes we can become stuck. As a therapist, I see my role as creating a space where you can feel supported to explore the parts of you that are hurting and also to nurture your own inner compassion and wisdom. Working from a non-pathologizing approach, I believe that all behaviour meets a need. The work of therapy is to develop a deeper understanding of what purpose protective mechanisms like addiction, anxiety, and self-harm have played in your life, and what you need to feel supported to grow and change.
