In my practice I work collaboratively with individuals and couples to find an approach and pace that works for each person. My approach is compassionate, strengths-based and client-centered. Seeking help in difficult times is both vulnerable and courageous. I work hard to ensure my clients feel respected, understood, and well held so that I can support them to more effectively address the challenges in their lives. Through our work together my clients are able to become more deeply connected to themselves and others.

Some of the issues I work with are: life transitions, ageing, anxiety, depression, grief, relationships and sex, stress, issues faced by trans* and gender non-conforming folks, spirituality and questions of purpose and meaning. Social justice and anti-oppression is an important lens through which I approach my work.

I draw from a variety of treatment modalities such as polyvagal theory, family systems therapy, solutions-focused, cognitive behavioral, creation of personal ritual and ceremony, somatic awareness and movement, existential, psychodramatic techniques and the expressive arts. I am BDSM, kink, and poly/non-monogamy friendly, and LGBTQIA affirming.
