I am a cisgender woman , with Mi’kmaw and Settler roots; as a result, the holistic therapy I provide is rooted in an anti-oppression approach. I was lucky enough to earn a Master of Social Work from the University of Buffalo. I chose that program because, unlike most other programs, it offered a specialty in utilizing a Trauma-Informed Focus. I was also trained in using EMDR. I have six years’ experience providing therapy; first in the USA and now in Canada. I’ve also provided services in community settings like the youth justice system and a community task force created to help deal with the human trafficking epidemic.

As a Christian woman , it’s hard navigating your experiences of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Your pain and suffering makes you question “If God is good, then why hasn’t he healed me? Is there something wrong with me? Do I not have enough faith?” Maybe past painful experiences of abuse or neglect haunt you and you can’t seem to forgive and move on. Depression and anxiety feel out of your control leaving you scared and hopeless. You pray and pray and pray and it doesn’t stop. Maybe you’ve tried therapy before and it didn’t help as you hoped. You desire and need the peace promised in the bible but it feels so far away.

My approach focuses on empowering women , clients in general, in their quest to know and free themselves on a deeper level, to live more meaningful and purposeful lives, to overcome every crisis, traumatic experiences and recreating self-image and building self-confidence while finding joy, grace and pure love for life as an inherent part of our true nature.
Unfolding, experiencing and living our authentic selves is what I am passionate about. I am highly skilled in guiding clients in accessing and exploring obstacles that are results of our deeply rooted beliefs. Unquestioned beliefs or limiting thoughts that can manifest as anxiety, depression or other psycho-emotional difficulties can actually be guiding lights on our journey to our true Selves. The essence of our being remains untouched as we grow and is waiting to be found and reconnected with. When you connect on a deeper level with your Self, your purpose, gifts, and talents show in their fullness and potentials show up.

As a queer woman , much of my practice focuses on working with 2SLGBTQ+ community, and with non-traditional relationship structures, in a creative, non-judgmental and supportive format.
As a Couple & Family Therapist, I hope to offer support, insight and a safer space in which to process, heal and grow. I believe all therapeutic work engages with relationships, even if just the relationship we have with ourselves. By focusing on the meaningful connections in our lives, and on the ways we have learned to approach them, it gives us the power to see ourselves more clearly and the ability to make the changes we hope for.

As a queer woman , I'm passionate about offering supports for the LGBTQ+ community in a comfortable space.
I understand the feeling of struggling to exist as your genuine self in a world that feels against you, in an environment that feels suffocating, and in a relationship that feels unendurable. Our lives do not exist in a bubble, and our experiences are impacted by the intersecting identities each of us hold. When we reach out for help, we are hoping that someone can understand us and hold space for our stories. I work with people every day who are looking for support in understanding how they can live congruently with their own values and core beliefs.

A main area of focus for me is integrating Islamic principles into the therapeutic process for faith oriented clients, as well as working with young girls and women .
I believe that we all have an inner knowing about who we are, what we need, how it is that we feel whole. It can be challenging sometimes to find our inner beacon to define where we want to go or determine the steps to getting there. I will work with you as a partner, a team player, to come to your truth and carve out the path that you want to take, so that life becomes a little more manageable or fulfilling.

I take female -identifying folks on a journey to meet and commune more deeply with their body, with the parts of themselves they have abandoned or are too afraid to venture near. My practice is an intuitive concoction, rooted in authentic movement and active imagination. I draw from my experience as a retired dancer and my education in existential-integrative psychotherapy and social work, including exposure to spiritual texts and experiential approaches, in order to assist my clients on the path to embodiment.
