I have extensive experience supporting individuals through their healing process with substance use , trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and emotion dysregulation.
Each one of us has an intuitive wisdom within us. Yet many of us learn to reject, mistrust, or ‘stuff’ emotions and intuitions away, losing connection with our genuine self. Although this pattern may have protected you in the past, you may now notice that it is causing you to feel hindered. I believe personal growth happens within a safe, therapeutic relationship that gives us the space to connect past experiences with present challenges while sitting with and processing related emotions and beliefs. My approach is collaborative, compassionate, and non-judgmental so that we can develop this safe, trusting space together.

I enjoy working with people at any stage of their substance use journey.
Often in life we can move on ‘auto pilot’ and be surprised when we feel hijacked by things such as anxiety, anger, substance abuse, depression, etc. I will aid you in processing your reactions and learn how to better identify and communicate your emotions. We are all carrying so much on our backs. Be it childhood experiences, trauma, anxiety, work or school stress, insecurities, self doubt and so much more. I will support you in finding the skills to tease apart, challenge, and cope with these issues.

I work with individuals experiencing post-traumatic stress and related difficulties such as PTSD, complex PTSD, addiction/ substance use , self-harm, eating issues, anxiety and depression.
What if I said that there is nothing wrong with you, that it is possible to trust others, to stop doubting yourself, and to break free from the destructive ways of coping that have gotten you to today? I want to help you regain power and control in your life and to release some of the heaviness that you've been carrying. I want you to begin seeing the world as a space in which trust and safety are not foreign. A world in which you don't have to keep numbing, running or hiding from your past, just to get through the day. It's time you began to heal from the things that happened to you.

This lived resistance informs my commitment to serve 2SLGBTQ+ communities through an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, decolonial, and intersectional lens. I work with addictions, anxiety, depression, gender/sexuality, life transitions, mood, newcomers and refugees, palliative care, people living with HIV, racial trauma, sex and intimacy, and substance use /misuse (including PnP/chemsex and crystal meth use).
