I specialize in working with the LGBTQ2S+ community and, specifically, the transgender community, helping individuals navigate the transition process.
As a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community, it can be extremely difficult to find a safe space that offers kindness, understanding, and support without judgement. It is my mission to provide a safe space for the LGBTQ2S+ community to receive therapy, support, and work towards living the best life they can live. Whether you're questioning your sexuality or gender, working on coming out to loved ones, navigating a new space for the first time, or just need to work on life issues, this is a place where you can do so without fear of judgement.

I am a Caucasian 32 year old transgender man myself, and welcome the opportunity to work with clients of all genders and ethnicities.
Welcome! I'm a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist experienced working with youth and adults in community mental health settings here in Toronto. I strive to work from a person-centered, strengths-based and collaborative approach. I believe that every person deserves the dignity and respect of making their own choices in life and carving out their own unique path. My priority is building a strong and genuine therapeutic alliance with you by providing a nonjudgmental, empathetic space for self-exploration, processing difficult experiences/emotions and working towards your goals.

I work with adults, youth, and couples dealing with self-esteem issues, trauma, healthy relationships with ourselves and others, sense of identity, and exploring the LGBTQIA community. I work with sex workers, people in non-traditional relationships including kink and polyamorous dynamics, larger bodied and fat people, and generally, people struggling with the weight of capitalism and society's unrealistic expectations of us. I work with other people, too, and if you feel like the way I work lines up with your values, reach out.

We all have stories that we tell about ourselves, our lives, and that others tell about us. Often when we’re struggling, these stories are about feeling powerless, hopeless, scared, and are full of shame and self-doubt. My therapeutic approach explores these narratives, creating space for new, richer stories to emerge. We’ll explore the stories different parts of yourself tell you, drawing you closer to your values, deconstructing your patterns and uncovering your strengths and resiliency to find new paths forward. We will build a deeper understanding of what you've been through, where you are, and where you're going.

I have 7 years experience working in the mental health field with children, teens, adults and seniors. Most recently, my work has been in Child and Adolescent Mental Health, where I supported Trans and Non-Binary youth, living with complex mental health concerns.

My goal is to give your family a safe space to work on developing skills and building relationships. I work with children and youth to develop the skills they need to cope with difficult emotions and situations, as well as empower parents to feel capable and improve relationships within the family. I provide a holistic approach to support the whole family and strongly believe that helping parents to understanding and supporting their child's identity is one of the most powerful ways of reducing risk around mental health issues.

I work with clients from diverse backgrounds who are facing a range of personal, relational and emotional challenges. Therapy may look like exploring & transforming beliefs, themes & patterns; exploring boundaries, needs & building a solid sense of self; creating new ways of being with others; exploring your sexuality, gender & relationships; or tapping into & developing intuition. We can reestablish connection with your body & learn to understand the sensations, feelings, memories & wisdom inherent there; or develop resources to increase self-regulation & working with (rather than against ) feelings, memories, symptoms & trauma.

***NOW ACCEPTING CLIENTS FOR PHONE/VIDEO*** It’s a privilege and honour to be doing this work, and to walk alongside clients on their respective healing journeys. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own lives and life experiences. By working collaboratively and through meaning-making, I aim to support clients in connecting with their needs, dreams, hopes, as well as to the answers I believe each person has inside them. My approach is trauma-informed, non-directive, strength-based, and client-centered. Healing, the discovery of possibilities, one’s resilience, and one's gifts can all be part of the therapy process.

You believe you are Neurodivergent: that explains a lot about your life! You may have received a diagnosis of ASD, ADHD, Dyscalculia, Dyslexia or identify as a HSP or Autistic. Sometimes you suffer in relationships and jobs due to difficulties in expressing your needs, asking for accommodations, or adjusting to a culture that was created for the Allistic/Neurotypical. School can be a problem. Behavioural approaches worked short tem, or you were bullied by ABA. You may be trans and/or BIPOC, and have other intersectionalities. You are looking for your "kin", or "neurokin": a therapist like you, and we can help you.

When life doesn’t seem to be going according to plan we can be left feeling isolated, overwhelmed, and unsure of what step to take next. It is my belief however that we each have within us all we need to succeed and thrive in our lives, sometimes it just gets buried under all of our “stuff” and we could use a hand to rediscover it. I’m continually inspired by the strength, resilience, and creativity demonstrated in the life stories of the people I work with, and consider it a privilege to be invited to walk alongside them for a chapter or two. I respect the courage it takes to reach out for support, so welcome, I’m glad you're here!

If overwhelmed, stressed out, and anxious seem to be your common state of being, or if you are struggling with feelings of guilt, shame, and hopelessness, or if despite all your best efforts you can't seem to get from where you are to where you want to be, leaving you feeling stuck; then therapy can provide you with a safe space to be seen, heard, and understood. We can uncover the root of why you are stuck and struggling, and discover the innate wellness and wisdom that resides within you, which can help create a new way of being in the present, so that your future can look like what you desire.

My education and experience has led me to a profound passion for the restoration of people. I value understanding how the human mind functions on a day to day basis. My education and experience in Marriage (Couple) and Family Therapy has led me to further expertise on topics including communication, conflict resolution, relationship issues, sex and stress within relationships. I believe therapy should never be seen as a failure, but rather as an avenue of growth and restoration.
