I offer individual therapy to adults (18+) who are interested in exploring the complexities of their past in order to understand who they are today. This work is connected to understanding the relationships around us, our grief, and our identities. We will also explore behaviours that may be getting in the way of leading the life you want, for example, confusion about identity, self harm, suicidal ideation /behaviours and relationship patterns. I welcome people from various social locations, including from the queer/trans community, and offer a sex-positive, Anti-Racist and Anti-Oppressive space.

I provide Psychometric Assessments, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solutions-Focused Therapy, Suicide Intervention, and Anti-Oppressive Practice.
As a Registered Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist, I provide professional support to individuals, families, health teams, and organizations. For almost 20 years I have worked with individuals at critical points in their lives. Coping with difficult life transitions can be challenging for many reasons. People often seek therapy as a means to navigate these circumstances and understand why they feel the way they do. The work towards change is driven by you. Helping you find motivation and/or clarity is driven by both of us. I am here to help, regardless of complexity - let us start together.

When dealing with personal struggles that leave you feeling stuck, confused or unsure it can sometimes make you feel like there is no answer, solution, or way out. Dealing with this on your own can sometimes feel draining, overwhelming, and isolating. It can even lead to thoughts of suicide , anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, shame, and lack of self-control. When working together you can expect the to be understood, heard, and guided as we find ways to overcome these struggles and regain control.

We often believe we must suffer on our own, having learned to be fiercely independent as result of trauma. Our suffering can show up as lack of motivation, burn-out, isolation, unhelpful habits, abuse, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, feeling stuck, or feeling like we just need to survive the day to day. We may even believe that we are meant to suffer. Perhaps we might believe that we cannot reach our potential or reach out for help, or we have forgotten who we are. When we receive the support that we need, we can all reach our full potential, regardless of what happened to us.

Do you feel like your past is haunting you OR your future is taunting you? Until we address that anxiety, depression, or trauma, we will continue to feel out of control or that nothing ever changes. In counselling, we will explore your pattern of emotions, thoughts, and behaviours and how they are linked to the problems in your life. You will learn more yourself, your attachment styles, relationships, trauma responses, and more. You will learn to effectively cope in stressful situations by using advanced coping techniques from various therapy methods.
