My practice is trauma-informed, sex, kink , and polyam positive, and dedicated to the uplifting of the LGBTQ2S+ community.
Many people hold the belief that challenges with emotional and mental well-being are a result of difficulty in coping, functioning, or adaptability. We may attempt to use willpower, intellect, and behavioural changes to tackle these issues; if these attempts fail to bring us inner peace or lasting change, we can begin to feel ashamed, alone, and stagnant. It is my belief that challenges with mental health, emotion, and relationships do not exist in a vacuum. These are more than personal failings at coping and functioning. Once we settle into this understanding, we can begin to uncover the deeper questions of your healing work.

I believe we are doing the best we can with the tools available. From my perspective, trauma can get locked in the body if there isn't enough safety to respond in the moment. I will support you in building on the wisdom you already have, and will creatively explore with you the places you feel stuck, shaky, or unmet. Through a relational and experiential process, I will bring attention and compassion to your suffering and untended needs. You can expect me to be warm, direct, steady, and responsive. Additionally, I am Queer & Trans affirming, kink -aware, and knowledgeable around polyamory/non monogamy.

I am LGBTQ2S and sex positive .
Perhaps you are experiencing some inner conflicts that are keeping you stuck? Or previous coping strategies are no longer serving you? Or maybe something is off that you can’t seem to name? Through exploring your thoughts, feelings and body sensations we can see what patterns and ways of being you would like to keep, let go of, (re) discover and grow. Using compassion and humour, we’ll work together to understand your reactions and how to work towards chosen responses to help navigate you to a different place.

I am sex positive and sex worker positive.
I am glad you made it here. Maybe you want to work on experiencing your emotions with greater ease, navigating sex and relationships, making peace with painful history or just have someone listen to what you say. Therapy can offer a chance to notice patterns, move towards acceptance, create change or just check in with yourself. I take a non-pathologizing approach to struggles and see them as a painful but common part of the human experience. I often work using trauma and attachment informed emotion focused therapy that also uses a relational, intersectional feminist and systemic lens. Together we can work to make sense of things.

I strive to work in the spirit of cultural humility and to practice anti-oppressive, harm reductive, and sex positive approaches to healing and personal growth.
Being human means knowing confusion, loss, and uncertainty, but what feels heavy or overwhelming need not be held alone. It takes courage to seek help, to push against stigma, and to break out of silence or isolation. The relationship between therapist and client(s) can offer a safe space to be heard, and to make sense together of the thoughts, feelings and patterns that are occurring in your life and your relationships. Together we can explore new ways of connecting that may bring greater understanding and compassion, and strengthen your capacity to connect and to manage life's difficulties.

My lens is anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, 2SLGBTQ-affirming, sex-positive, kink -aware and welcoming of varied relationship configurations.
Looking for support? Therapy provides an opportunity to express big feelings, talk through challenges, explore patterns of behaviour, develop greater self-awareness, and try different ways of being and relating. I practice contemporary Gestalt therapy that is experiential, relational and embodied. I was first drawn to Gestalt because it embraces an egalitarian relationship between client and therapist, takes a non-pathologizing approach to mental health, and invites creativity. I emphasize the development of self-awareness as a way to increase choice, flexibility, acceptance, and ultimately wellbeing.

Sex therapy can help to deal with sexual difficulties, desire discrepancy in couples, to enhance pleasure or reinvigorate your sex life, or to negotiate open relationships, experimentation or kink .
Your conversations with a therapist should help you to explore your situation, look for alternative perspectives and find solutions or new strategies. Whether you are discussing sexuality issues, anxiety, depression, bipolar, trauma, or life transitions, you should feel supported, understood and challenged to explore all the different aspects of the situation. My goals for therapy are to help you increase coping strategies, increase communication and negotiation skills, increase self-esteem, increase your awareness of your strengths and to process difficult situations like grief and loss or the experience of a traumatic event.

I am trauma informed, sex positive , anti-oppressive, LGBTQ2S+ positive, and relational.
We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

I strive to offer a therapeutic process that is anti-racist, anti-ableist, body positive, sex positive , class conscious, and affirming to all genders and sexualities.
When life begins to feel challenging and overwhelming, it can be difficult to create space for calm and stillness. We may even seek to avoid the quiet altogether, fearing the thoughts that arise or the emotions we keep buried beneath the surface. It often feels easier to distract ourselves from our thoughts or to numb and detach from the challenging emotions that inevitably emerge. Therapy can provide us with a space to turn inward and deeply connect with ourselves, allowing us to bring awareness to our patterns, better understand our needs, move towards acceptance, or even work towards change.

I have experience in the following: supporting survivors of sexual/interpersonal/structural violence; harm reduction and substance use; grief and loss; anxiety and depression; PTSD; healing from racial trauma; navigating interpersonal relationships; workplace bullying; LGBTQAA identities; exploring kink ; poly relationships; sex work; & migrant justice.
I am a queer femme of colour who is working to support collective healing and liberation by offering individual counselling. My work is centred in an intersectional feminist approach to therapy drawing from somatics, narrative and evidence based practices. My approach is to support individuals to build upon existing strengths and daily practices to ensure that they have the tools to live their life in alignment with their own values and desires. I see my role as creating a container to support a person in developing deeper accountability and consent in their relationship with themselves and with others.
