**Waitlisting for January 2021 ** Healing involves connecting with ourselves through each other, and to each other through ourselves. We are inter-dependently connected, and yet there is dis-connection. Interpersonal harm, systemic barriers and institutional violence impact each and every one of us. By working together collaboratively, we can identify the barriers limiting your potential, create tools unique to your situation, deepen your capacity to learn how to learn and communicate about communication, as well as re-discover the power of emotions, and gain clarity of purpose.

(WAITLIST CLOSED) Sometimes it's difficult to get unstuck from our emotions, but try to think of them as waves of an ocean—coming and going, rising and falling... Never permanent and always moving. Experiencing your emotions and allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a true strength, not a weakness. Together, we can address personal difficulties, explore options, develop coping strategies, and identify strengths. Counselling and psychotherapy can promote healing, resiliency, and self-empowerment, and it is tailored to each client's individual and unique needs. What works for one client may not work for another.

Counselling can be a powerful tool for facilitating change. I strive to co-create a therapeutic environment in which people can safely push their edges of self reflection and feel supported to deepen their awareness of themselves in relationship to self, intimate others, community and a broader sociopolitical context. My work is deeply shaped by queer-positive, anti-racist, and trauma-informed perspectives. I am experienced in working with issues related to migration & belonging, sexuality & gender, trauma, relationships, identity formation in youth, and dynamics between parents & adult children.

There are many reasons that motivate individuals to seek therapy and I appreciate that it requires courage to make an appointment with a therapist. I have expertise working with individuals who have concerns about anxiety, depression, substance use, self esteem, gender identity and sexual orientation, relationship difficulties, loss and grief, relationship issues, and trauma. In couple therapy, I work with both partners to understand the current difficulties in the relationship. We work on understanding how current and past patterns of relating can affect the relationship and explore strategies that can help to strengthen communication and contribute to greater intimacy.

Some clients come to therapy because they need a chance to work through events that have had a negative influence on their wellbeing. Other clients may have never had a chance to know their own desire: what it is that they value and want out of life. Some clients come for support with a specific diagnosis, and others have a vague sense that something is just not right. Sometimes clients have found that they simply benefit from a place to focus on their own mental health.

You are an individual. There is no one else quite like you. Your therapy should be as unique as you are. We are all the products of our past, from experiences that happened so long ago that they escape memory to what happened just as we opened the door to the present moment. Early in our lives, we learn the skills we need to navigate the world we find ourselves in. Those skills stay with us and help protect us on our journey through life. They continually have an impact on how we deal with ourselves and others every day.

There is always more to a person than they can be immediately conscious of. There are things we feel or won't feel; do or won't do; and we don't always know why. We are influenced by experiences outside of our immediate awareness. Psychotherapy is a conversation uniquely capable of bringing these experiences into awareness. In the process of speaking out loud to another person, both parties must listen attentively to hear those things that are difficult to say. It is important to be open to the possibility of being surprised by what one can say out loud.

My approach involves careful and considerate listening, a kind of listening that is mostly not found in everyday communication. Listening together to what you say about your own life allows for us to have a very different conversation, creating the space for you to speak freely and explore often overlooked or unconscious parts of your experience. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis allow for speaking what was priorly unspeakable, effecting insight, change, and relief from symptoms. I have worked with professionals and academics, people in creative and educational fields, university students, and members of the LGBTQ community.
