I am a queer social worker and psychotherapist offering in-person and virtual individual and couples therapy. My work over the past decade has predominantly centred 2SLGBTQ+ communities, but I welcome new clients from all backgrounds and identities to my practice. My intention in our sessions is to create a relationship that balances security, curiosity, and discomfort. Therapy can and should be challenging at times, but we will work together to find a sweet spot that centres safety and trust so that we have a secure foundation to explore uncomfortable topics, to push up against difficult emotions, and to interrogate stuck points.

“Career Counselling” Self doubt stifles your motivation, making you feel like an imposter in your career. You question your abilities to achieve goals. You avoid confrontation out of fear you will be disliked. You compare yourself with other colleagues. You overextend yourself hoping it will be rewarded. You are overwhelmed with having to meet key performance indicators. Your fear of failure prevents you from moving forward on projects. You feel discouraged to apply for promotions. Lacking self confidence, you wonder why you are experiencing a lag in your career and believe no one understands what you are going through.

“Stepping into the world of therapy can be a scary and challenging experience.” Why? It may be because you grew up in an environment or culture where “talking” about your mental health did not exist, was not accepted, or when you did, it was not validated. Know that I actively try to de-stigmatize “going to therapy” as part of my practice. I believe that therapy can look different for everyone. Some individuals engage in therapy to maintain their emotional well-being and balance in their life and/or some want to actively address debilitating mental health concerns. My approach is to meet you where you are at.

I work from a feminist, anti-racist and class conscious perspective with the goal of fostering agency, accountability and well being in individuals who want to be agents of change in their lives and in the world around them. I strive to provide an outlet for the fear, sadness and rage that comes from bearing witness to and being the victim of injustice and violence. I also seek to help my clients deepen their relationships and work to ease the loneliness we all experience in this life. I offer a space to think more deeply about meaning and purpose, in hopes that this will ease symptoms of anxiety, depression and burnout.

Living in today’s world as a "big feeler", 2SLGBTQ+ person, ally, non-monogamous person, someone who uses substances, or someone who struggles with relationships, can feel exhausting and overwhelming. It can also feel hard to know who the safe supports are (the ones who won’t judge your experience or push you to embrace normative frameworks). You might be seeking support with trauma, anxiety, anger, inner criticism, boundaries, emotional dysregulation, people-pleasing, or feeling othered. Whatever your experiences are, I wholeheartedly get that you have been doing your best so far. Do you want to try something different?

Having worked in educational and mental health organizations since 1996, I have extensive experience assisting older adolescents and young adults to manage their mental health, social development and learning needs while navigating the increasingly complex journey to adulthood. With a variety of evidence- based approaches, I assist clients to reduce impacts of symptoms, build skills and self confidence, and to develop their internal resources to become the creators of their lives; lives that bring fulfillment and that are aligned with their core interests, values and passions.

You may be trying to break cycles of addiction, acting out impulsively and feeling at the mercy of overwhelming and unpredictable emotions. I am experienced in helping people shift their existing patterns, to help them to better understand themselves and their feelings and make them more manageable. I understand that you are an individual who requires a treatment that is made to fit you and your unique experiences and characteristics.

Guys have way more going on emotionally than most of us are comfortable talking about. If you have never talked to someone about whatever it is that you probably should talk to someone about, then I may be the guy for you. Some men come to my office after they've recently broken up with their girlfriend (or she has broken up with him). Some are dealing with anxiety or are living under the influence of depression. Some guys are trying to figure out who they really are and what to do with their life. What they all have in common is that they have strengths to draw on and want to advance in life feeling better than they do now.

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.

Has someone really important in your life died? Someone that you never imagined having to live without? I know that the death of a significant person in your life can be devastating. Even worse, they might have been the person who would comfort you in your toughest moments and now they're gone. Grief in this magnitude can be destabilizing and leave you to wonder if you're going to be able to survive the relentlessness of it all. If you've tried avoiding the pain or "acting normal" but it hasn't worked, I can give you the space and guidance to come apart and then help you put yourself back together in a different and meaningful way.

In a culture focused on image and beauty, it is completely natural that we manifest shame, guilt, and anxiety in our body and food behaviours. If this sounds like you, you are not alone. Disordered eating, eating disorders, and body dysmorphia, may have been coping strategies to handle deeper-rooted issues-- they have acted as a means of control and comfort, when maybe you felt like you had none. The purpose of my practice is to foster sustainable emotional growth-- this means a relationship with your body and food that encourages self-worth, value, and connection.

Recovery from deep-seated emotional wounds is a uniquely personal journey, shaped by your own inner experiences. If you find yourself on this path, you know it's more than just healing from trauma; it's about navigating a complex emotional landscape. Seeking out a therapist can be a self-compassionate first step towards healing. Perhaps you're yearning for a sense of safety or a stable emotional foundation. Maybe your goal is to rebuild a stronger connection with your authentic self, rediscovering the pieces that were lost along the way. Or maybe you want to create a life filled with greater peace, joy, and fulfilling relationships.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are certified by one of the main professional associations, mainly the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and will have a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) designation with their name. Social Workers listed in the directory must be registered members of the college specific to their province. To be listed in the directory, Psychologists must be registered with the psychological college specific to their province or territory.

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given the considerable variation in professional regulation and prerequisites across Canadian provinces, some providers may possess significant professional qualifications without necessarily holding professional memberships or being obliged to acquire them. As a result, they may be selectively included without the "Verified" seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists and social workers can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and supervised, practical experience that enable them to do so in Canada.

Psychologists have a master's and/or doctoral degree and have passed both written and oral exams. Psychologists are able to complete mental health assessments and provide diagnostic information to clients as well as provide counselling therapy or psychotherapy. Counsellors and psychotherapists are expected to have a master's or doctoral degree in counselling psychology, social work, or a related mental health discipline and certification by a professional association, such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Registered Social Workers possess a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Social Work and where possible must be licensed or certified by the provincial government and/or regulatory college.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, the cost of a therapy session in Canada could be between $100 and $200. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. Some types of outpatient mental health services are covered by Medicare, provided these are performed by a licensed mental health professional in the provinces or territory you reside in and who accepts the assignment.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postal code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Professionals licensed by regulatory colleges and those certified by associations such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association are obligated to uphold client confidentiality unless there is a legal reason that requires them to disclose information. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there is the potential or known harm to the client or others, or a court order, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
