I'm queer & neurodiverse with lived experience with mental health challenges.
I value anti-oppressive, person-centered approaches to therapy & believe the relationship is at the core of your process. I currently support folks 16 years old & above. With sharing the therapeutic space, I aim to provide space to be wholeheartedly yourself. I take a strengths-based, collaborative approach in working toward your therapeutic goals. I recognize the gaps in mental health care that 2SLGBTQ+ folks face (regardless of folks whom are out to everyone, out to some, not out at all, don’t want to come out, questioning etc.) and aim to ensure folks are able to unapologetically be themselves.

Finding a therapist who understands what you’ve been through can be a challenging process. Whether you are queer , trans , neurodivergent, or all three, I’m right there with you. Being in our skin can be very hard, and it can also be wonderful. I’m here to help you navigate the challenges and to celebrate your wins. Whether you know who you are or you are trying to find your way there, I can help provide a different perspective and ask the questions that will get you to where you want to be. Helping people figure out who they are is one of my specialties and one of my greatest joys.

I am a a a queer , neurodivergent, polyamorous, feminist, and cisgender white woman. I am committed to anti-oppression, social justice, and the self-reflection and lifelong unlearning this requires. I have been practicing social work since 2012 with a focus on issues related to queer and trans folks, body neutrality, harm reduction, and body-based trauma recovery modalities. I am most excited about working with queer and trans folks, neurodiverse folks, non-monogamous folks, and those looking to utilize EMDR for trauma recovery.

If you are struggling with overwhelming emotions, relationship issues, marginalization, or trauma, you may find hope and empowerment through therapy. As a queer , non-binary therapist, I focus on social justice and how oppression can both impact you and be resisted on a personal level. I will support you to work with overwhelming emotions so that they don’t control you or damage your relationships, and instead guide you towards a more fulfilling life. Through a supportive and collaborative relationship, we can deeply understand your experiences, help you heal from their impacts, and work towards your hopes for your life.

My practice is grounded in a client-centered, trauma-informed, anti-racist, de-colonialist, anti-oppressive, 2SLGBTQ+ affirming, culturally humble approach, guided by narrative & feminist frameworks. My intention is to co-create a healing, empowering, and exploratory space that affirms all the parts that make you who you are (ie. gender, sexuality, race, culture, ancestry, family, community, spirituality, thoughts, feelings, and beliefs).

I have experience working with adults healing from trauma (including childhood abuse and neglect), queer and trans folks, and post-secondary students.
I help adults heal from trauma, childhood abuse and neglect, and bullying, allowing them to feel more connected to themselves, to others, and to the life they want to live. Low self-esteem, extreme emotions, intrusive thoughts, social anxiety, and negative body image don't have to get in the way of your relationships and life goals. With therapy, you can improve how you feel toward yourself, find inner calm, and learn how to feel safe and secure in the present.

Words are powerful things. They can help you make sense of your emotions and experiences, understand how your past affects your present, and improve your relationships. Together, we can work to find the words you need, whether you are navigating depression, anxiety, grief, or trauma, coping with change, having difficulties with relationships, or struggling to communicate. I am an LGBTQ + ally, and I welcome people in non-traditional relationships, members of all faiths/spiritual beliefs, and neurodivergent individuals. My goal is to provide a supportive, judgement-free, collaborative environment that focusses on your needs and goals.

You know your child best and when your gut feelings tell you that something is going on with your child, it’s time to act on that hunch. My practice is devoted to art and play-based therapies using evidence-based theories and approaches. Clients work at their own pace to creatively explore, understand their own strengths, and implement learned strategies for managing anxiety, stress, school, social concerns, big emotions, grief, gender/orientation and life transitions. I will gently, creatively and compassionately support and nurture your child to overcome their challenges and find their own path to well-being.

Suffering is an inherent part of the human experience. However, we often feel that we are alone in our suffering, that no one can relate to our experiences, or that we don’t deserve to find peace in our lives. This can create feelings of frustration and despair, and we begin to feel stuck, unable to connect with others. Fear of judgement, along with our vulnerabilities can keep us from reaching out when we need it the most. I am confident that every person holds an innate understanding of what they need to heal and grow. Grounded in compassion, humility, and curiosity, my aim is to co-create a safe, open space for self-exploration.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Kingston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Kingston specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
