About

Hi, I’m so glad you made it here. My name is Sarah, my pronouns are she/her and I am a therapist living and working here on Treaty 1 territory. Providing counselling and therapy has been a passion of mine for 10 years. I have special interests in working with trauma, grief/loss, end-of-life, living with uncertainty, neurodiversity and the impact of oppression on mental health.I love working with people who identify as 2SLGBT+, teens (13+), immigrants and the neurodiverse community. I believe therapy should be collaborative, anti-oppressive and rooted in a trusting relationship with a professional.
I have a passion for staying up-to-date with the most current, relevant research on understanding our nervous systems and the impact traumatic experiences have on both our biology and social lives. I believe we can tackle mental health concerns with both science and human connection. I bring together several modalities to meet folks' individual needs.
Finding a therapist that feels right for you can be a journey. Please feel free to learn more about me on our website listed below or send me an email and I’d be happy to offer a free 15-20 minute consultation to explore if I am the right fit for you. If not, I’ll always try to help refer you to someone who is.
