Announcement icon In light of of covid-19, I am suspending in person sessions. As an alternative, I am offering safe and secure video and phone sessions.
You don't have to face life's difficulties alone. If you are struggling with trauma, shame, depression, anxiety, or low-self esteem, or have concerns about relationships, intimacy and setting healthy boundaries, my compassionate, intuitive and collaborative style will help you to become more aware of, and reconnect to your own strengths, develop greater self-compassion and self-acceptance, as well as connect to your potential and find new ways of approaching challenges. I've been a therapist for over 15 years and I offer both individual and couple therapy in downtown Toronto.
I am versed in working with issues resulting from violence (childhood and/or adulthood) and other oppression. As a queer woman of colour, I am experienced with sexual orientation, gender identity, and race/racism. My approach is sex-positive and applicable to monogamous, non-monogamous and polyamourous relationships.
My practice incorporates different modalities, such as Emotion focused therapy for couples, as well as mindfulness practice, and narrative therapy. I am also experienced in short-term approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy. Together, we will explore your inner world, bringing greater self-awareness to your own experience.
