My potential clients may or may not have a clear sense of what brings them to therapy. They may be dealing with depression, anxiety, or addiction, among other things. They may be experiencing trouble in relationships, whether it be with family, friends, partners, coworkers, roommates, and others. They want to understand themselves and their relationships better. They are open to the non-linear nature of personal progress.

**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.

I'm passionate about helping and connecting with others. My wealth of clinical and front line experience provides me with expertise and practical skills not possessed by most therapists. I view each client as an expert in their own lives, largely integrating their goals in counselling. My work is inspired by the science of neuroplasticity, thus I provide education about human behaviour and brain functioning to help clients make sense of their difficulties and see their challenges from a normalizing view. Many clients find this information to be helpful, hopeful, and empowering, as it gives us a roadmap for resolving their issues.

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.

One of the most important aspects to my practice and in our work together is to create a space that fosters safety, trust and openness. When you are in a space where you’re able to access your authentic thoughts, feelings and experiences- that’s where real change and growth can happen! Throughout our lives we learn ways of navigating the world. Often we don’t have the opportunity or privilege to learn ways of coping and processing that serve us in a beneficial way. We do the best we can with the information we have at the time...and that’s surviving! I’d love to help you move from surviving to truly living!

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.

Transgender (Gender Dysphoria) Counsellors
We should make clear that not all the counsellors listed here are transgender themselves. Rather, they specialise in helping with aspects of being transgender in Toronto and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in Toronto or for a Toronto transgender counsellor these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.

Transgender people in Toronto may meet the criteria for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria (historically called gender identity disorder (GID)) "only if being transgender causes distress or disability." This distress is referred to as gender dysphoria.

The professionals listed here include transgender friendly counselors in Toronto, transgender friendly counsellors in Toronto, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly therapists.

Counselling for transgender issues in Toronto can help those living a transgendered life or transgender relationship; or family members coming to understand the life of their transgender child or sibling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Toronto are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Toronto you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Toronto and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Toronto or family therapy in Toronto.
