I provide individual, couple, and sex therapy to adults (18+) in several provinces and I am the owner/director of Mintleaf Psychology Clinic.
I am passionate about mental wellness and helping people make and maintain positive changes in their lives. I feel strongly that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor, and I prioritize collaboration and authenticity in my therapeutic approach. I use a biopsychosocial lens to consider how your identity, culture, context may be affecting your experience and worldview. In every case, we decide together what works best for you; I believe that this gives you the best opportunity to achieve further understanding and insight, and ultimately transform this self-discovery into meaningful and lasting change.

While I accept various cases including acute mental health concerns, my clinical focuses are adoption, parenting, LGBTQIA+ issues, childhood trauma, racial minority stress, neurodiversity, sex and relationship.
My work at its core is all about building a relational connection and co-creating a safe therapeutic holding space which is informed by the relational psychotherapy and narrative therapy, and my own lived experiences as a racialized gay/queer person and also adoptive parent. Whether your struggles are small or big, what matters in this space is our joint commitment, an emotionally engaged and interactive process, and a shared journey. Our therapeutic relationship is going to be the principal vehicle to bring the changes that you are longing for in your personal and family life, as well as within your larger community.

Collaboratively, through a person-centered and strength-based approach, I seek to support and navigate life’s greatest stressors and hurdles with you in a way that meets you where you are at. Changes in life can cause us to feel distant and disconnected from ourselves, or from our relationships. This can lead to low sex-drive or libido, and poor communication, causing recurring and frequent disagreements. I want to support you in

My job is to help you connect with your partner in meaningful way so that the two of you start to have different conversations than the ones you do at home. I also offer sex therapy. Whether you are an individual or couple, part of a monogamous or open relationship I offer a safe, non- judgemental, confidential space for you to share your experience.

I also specialize and have had training in: sex, intimacy, & relationship therapy; self esteem & self worth; body image & disordered eating; grief, death, & loss; and spiritual/existential concerns.
To me, therapy is a warm, comfortable space we build together; it’s an hour outside of your everyday life, a shared place we can process whatever needs to be processed from the safety of. Care, compassion, non-judgement, and a genuine therapeutic relationship are the foundations of our work together and are my main priorities. My focus is always holistic: we have to look at every layer - from the cues your body and nervous system are giving you to the systemic messages surrounding you - to reach not just the bandaids but the deeper roots of distress and, ultimately, growth. I work from an actively affirming and anti-oppressive lens.

Sex and relationships are often at the core of our lives. The ways in which we connect with others - and with ourselves - can have significant impacts on our health and well-being. Communication barriers, sexual dysfunction, disconnection, infidelity, domestic abuse, trauma, and other kinds of psychosocial concerns are common challenges that lead people to seek therapy with me. Many of my clients are wanting to calm anxiety, develop coping skills, increase sexual satisfaction, reconnect with partners, or heal from trauma and abuse.

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
