About

My name is River, I identify as nonbinary and transmasculine and use they/he pronouns. I welcome clients from all ages and backgrounds who would like to work collaboratively to gain greater health and wellness. Every person is the expert in their own lives, and therefore the expert in their own healing. Whether you are looking to process past traumas or focus on changing your present and future, I want to help facilitate that.
My approach can vary depending on what is the best fit for you, but it will always be Anti-Oppressive, Evidence-Based, Trauma-Informed, Feminist, and Sex-positive. My areas of expertise include: PTSD, ASD, ADHD/ADD, Anxiety, Depression, LGBTQ+ related issues, and religious abuse recovery. To treat symptoms of trauma I practice EMDR therapy.
I encourage you to carefully consider your fit with potential counsellors, myself included, and make decisions about where you seek help based on your goals and comfort level. You are the expert in your own life! I hope you will consider me when you are doing your research and making decisions about who to see, and I look forward to working together.
