About

I want to understand who you are and unpack the contents of your mind with you. When traumatic events or negative experiences aren’t processed, they can take shape in behaviour, habits, feelings, thoughts and relationship dynamics. I offer a therapeutic journey to disarm the loops in your mind and work towards loosening their grip in your life. Whether you're feeling anxious, jaded, overwhelmed, empty, frozen, or feel your experiences are embarrassing or shameful, I believe you are worthy and deserving of being met with acceptance, care and connection.
In session, we feel feelings, have conversations, unwind thoughts & practice new ways of being. As my client you receive practical tools, skills and strategies to help you build an internal system of resilience. My area of focus is in working with anxiety, personality disorders, neurodivergence, trauma, toxic relationships, sexuality & gender expression.
Selecting a therapist to share your experiences with is a big deal! I offer complimentary consultations to meet one another, ask questions, talk about your counselling hopes and determine if we are the right fit for each other. It would be my honour to support your personal evolution of healing and repair.
