My approach to counselling is first and foremost directed at providing a comfortable, welcoming, non-judgemental space. I use an integrative approach to counselling, meaning I pull from various theories and modalities – all of which are evidence based. Most commonly I use Person-Centered, humanistic approaches, Queer theory and affirmative therapy. I am also trained in using EMDR therapy. During sessions we will work together to create goals, foster resilience, gain skills and coping strategies to empower you to work towards change and combat your negative thinking to ultimately improve your well-being.
I recognize the importance of diversity and cultural identity and I will work to understand your beliefs, values, and traditions. I am a WPATH member and have WPATH certified training. I work under the WPATH Standards of Care version 8 (SOC v.8) to provide letters of support for gender affirming surgeries and hormone affirming therapy.
Coming to therapy is nerve-wracking, that cannot be understated. I will work with you to ensure the time we have together is productive, warm, affirming, non-judgemental and real. I offer a free 15-minute consultation to let you decide whether I would be a good fit for you. Reach out to me at the numbers provided to start your journey towards mental wellness

I would like to note that while Psychology Today notes these areas as "expertise", these are more appropriately coined as areas of focus where I have received additional trainings, and are areas of special interest to me. I cannot consider myself an "expert" on all these concerns. I have lived experience being a queer person, and have a wealth of knowledge in affirmative/queer therapy.
