Through my work I believe that compassion and empathy are two of the most important qualities when seeking support. From time to time life can feel overwhelming and heavy, due to many of the experiences that we are faced with from Life Transitions, Substance Use (or Abuse), Gambling/Gaming Concerns, Trauma Events, or Mental Health Concerns; I am here to support you through it. I provide both individual and family therapy.

I have worked with individuals managing various challenges such as, but not limited to: substance use and addiction, homelessness and poverty, intimate partner violence, .
I became a social worker because "your life is worth my time.” This is something I live by as I value each and every client I have had the opportunity to work with. I always feel blessed to join clients on their journey towards healing and wellness, and it takes immense bravery to take that first step and reach out for help. I work hard to create an environment that fosters safety and growth, and approach my practice from a strengths-based, anti-racist, collaborative lens. I have also begun the process of becoming trained in Brainspotting and have completed Phases 1 and 2.

My background includes working with individuals who have struggled with a wide range of challenges including depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, self-esteem, relationships, body image, substance use , addiction, anger, stress, guilt, shame, and more.
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, stress, relationship issues or other concerns then finding the right therapist is a step towards finding solutions and increased skills to dealing with these problems. My approach to therapy focuses on helping you become comfortable and confident in your own abilities, while introducing new strategies from evidence-based approaches to help you create a healthier and happier life. Being able to understand your own story and explore the background of your struggles often gives new meaning and an ability to see new solutions to difficult problems. This is what I work towards.

Everything was okay until it wasn’t any more. You're tired of feeling so stuck, overwhelmed and ashamed all the time and you’re ready to make a change. You’ve probably tried so many times to make these changes on your own but it’s only taken you so far and it’s been nearly impossible to keep from slipping back into old behaviours. This leaves you feeling hopeless, deflated, and weak. But let me tell you something: you’re not supposed to have it all figured out on your own. Really. If you are ready to take back control of your life and you have the desire to do things different -- that’s all you need to get started.

Transgender people who are located across what is currently “canada” are my clients. If you are transgender, nonbinary, genderfluid, agender, 2S, or questioning and seeking recovery from trauma, you are welcome here. You carry a history of multiple, overlapping traumas that your body contains the memory of. Trauma-related flashbacks surface in your sleep, you experience self-harm urges, or you endure meltdowns. You may find drug use is a helpful medicine or a method of coping and survival, or you carry stories of dysphoria, anti-fatness, homelessness, or abusive relationships and you require a therapist who is trans liberationist.

You feel out of control and even the smallest things set you off. You can't sleep because guilt, racing thoughts, and self-doubt keep you awake at night. You knew becoming a parent would have its ups and downs, but you didn’t expect to totally lose yourself in the process. You love your child more than anything, but you can't help but miss the freedom you used to have. You wonder where your old self has gone and if you will ever be able to feel relaxed, confident, and ready to face the day.

I'm a registered social worker that provides evidence-based therapy for individuals and couples. Perhaps you are struggling with feelings of anxiety and depression or you are unhappy in your relationship. You might be avoiding difficult situations or finding ways to escape from how you are feeling. As a couple, you might be feeling stuck. Your conversations or arguments go in circles and never feel resolved. It's become difficult to communicate and you feel disconnected from each other.

As your therapist I believe you are the only expert about yourself and your life. I view therapy as a co-active partnership where the individual and the therapist work together towards the goals of the client. This does not mean that I cannot provide guidance and suggestions about what might be helpful. Therapy is ultimately about your individual needs and what you hope to achieve. I see my role as supporting you in exploring different ways of coping and achieving your potential.
