About

It takes a lot of courage to decide to seek support. We start where you are and go at a pace that is comfortable for you. I work with feminist and anti-oppressive perspectives. The areas around which I have experience include depression, anxiety, compassion fatigue, trauma, relationship violence, grief, issues around being queer, questioning your sexual orientation and transitioning genders, immigrant and refugee settlement, and culture shock. I am trained in Trauma therapy, Brainspotting, Attachment Theory, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Narrative therapy.
My other areas of experience include working with children with disabilities, research on the experiences of LGBT caregivers, as well as research on trauma work with refugees and immigrants. I also have experience writing psychosocial assessments for refugee claimants.
I am a queer parent living in Kingston.
