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.

My areas of specialization are relationship issues, grief & bereavement, palliative care, HIV/AIDS/Cancer, coming out, internalized homophobia, transgender issues, addiction recovery, and codependency.
The counselling process is similar to carefully peeling back the layers of an onion. You need to feel safe and in control as the layers of your story are revealed. Together, we uncover deeper parts of the self that may be hidden from conscious thought ... old scripts and tapes that are still playing today and causing you pain and anxiety. You can change your life by bringing these old patterns and voices into the light of day for examination. My work is to support, guide, and challenge you so you can empower yourself to deal with past issues and present concerns.

I have received training to provide assessments and referrals for transgender clients.
Many of us face times in our lives when we need support to get through difficult periods. I see psychotherapy as a safe space to explore yourself, gain self-insight and understanding, and develop tools and resources to face the ups and downs of life. Since 2011, I have had the chance to work with adults with various needs and challenges. I have supported clients to work through relationship difficulties, repetitive patterns that were no longer serving them, anxiety, depression, painful emotions related to present or past events (including traumas), self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and adjustment to chronic illness.

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.

Thank you for considering me in your search for a therapist. It is my belief that the most meaningful therapy is grounded in the safety and fit of the client-therapist relationship. I strive to maintain a practice that is authentic, transparent, and honouring of the courage it takes to arrive in therapy. My approach is integrative and often draws from both person-centred and narrative methodologies, which allows the therapeutic process to be tailored to your specific needs.

-------------NO LONGER ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS------------- Life can bring on many challenges and difficulties, we may struggle with moments of distress and feel like we need help. I see psychotherapy as a powerful tool that can help you gain insight into your own inner dynamic and facilitate psychological, social, and emotional changes. It can help you explore and become aware of old unhelpful or unskillful coping patterns that were maybe once useful and necessary, but now no longer serve you. By raising awareness of habitual patterns or habits, we open up to the possibility of choosing otherwise and rewiring our brain accordingly.

Your body feels like it’s betraying you. Maybe the outside doesn’t match up with what’s on the inside. Maybe your body is keeping you from a fun, enjoyable sex life; erections aren’t reliable, orgasms don’t happen when you want them to, sex hurts. Maybe you can’t seem to find the way to have an enjoyable sex life off the beaten path; poly, kink, open relationships, sex play – how do I have it all? In short, sex – this thing that is ‘supposed’ to be easy and natural – has become… complicated.

Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and others. It is difficult to be in the world right now and the impending fear and anxiety around us can contribute to feelings of overwhelm and a sense of disconnect from ourselves and others. This might have us feeling hopeless, isolated or 'stuck'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.

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.

(they/them) I value person-centered approaches to counselling and believe the relationship in therapy is at the core to your growth. With sharing the therapeutic space, I ensure that you can be wholeheartedly yourself, I take a strengths-based, collaborative approach in working toward your therapeutic goals. I recognize the gaps in mental health care specifically that 2SLGBTQI+ 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 work to ensure folks are able to unapologetically be themselves when accessing mental health support, regardless of identity.

Does any of this sound familiar? You survived emotional neglect. You work hard and are independent. Sometimes, your drive has harmed relationships and partnerships. Perhaps your family members struggle with alcohol or addictions. You often feel isolated and "not enough", and you could use help from a person who understands these challenges. If you are Neurodivergent, in Recovery, or someone in, or considering gender transition, I have specific education + experience to support you (Rainbow Health Ontario provider). I am adopted, an ACE human in a loving marriage, and I volunteer and learn in multiple Harm Reduction communities.

Blended families and individuals and families created through adoption, fostering and donor-assisted reproduction have unique histories and experiences which differ from families created through birth alone. All have experienced losses and the trauma of broken birth bonds. These experiences can provoke conscious or unconscious feelings such as grief, anger and shame which have significant impacts on self-value, behaviours, relationships and intimacy. Accessing, understanding & grieving are necessary before personal change and deeper interpersonal connections can be made.
