I offer one-on-one individual sessions for adults and youth navigating themes of depression, anxiety, grief, sexuality, gender identity, race/racism, childhood trauma, relationships issues, self-worth and substance use. I approach healing with a non-linear, non-pathological perspective that recognizes systemic oppression, intergenerational trauma, and survival, with nuance, sensitivity and curiosity.

Websites like this can feel overwhelming. First, it can be hard to sort through the titles: counsellor, therapist, psychotherapist, psychologist? And what's the difference anyway? See if this helps. I'm a guide. The questions we explore together create a kind of map. The map helps you see your life more clearly. All humans need a map at some point. We feel lost or stuck. We try to change direction. We might wonder what's wrong with us and why we can't be more like other people - people who seem to find life so much easier.

As a therapist, I have the privilege of meeting people at a critical point in their lives when they are looking to understand themselves better, make changes and deal with painful feelings. I think it is so important for people to have someone non-judgmental to talk to about what is going on in their lives. I look forward to the possibility of meeting and helping you with a challenging period of your life with some humour, humility and almost 20 years of experience as a social worker.

Life can often feel chaotic. The reality is that changes are presented to us outside of our control and we find ourselves faced with the task of making decisions and choices that will decide the course of our future. These untimely decisions and choices can leave us feeling bewildered and disoriented. To complicate things further, we can find ourselves stuck in emotional and behavioural patterns that inhibit and hold us back from making the decisions we would like to or that would be best for us. Sometimes it’s difficult to even know what we would like to do or what is best for us. What should you aim towards?
