About me

In life and in therapy, I believe learning about yourself is crucial to growth and movement. Each therapy session provides space to look at your life in the context of the relationships you’re in, your histories, and the systems you come up against. I understand that thoughts, feelings, and behaviours all exist in the context of identity – that race, gender, sexuality, class, dis/ability, immigration status, etc. – can shift the way you experience, hold, and speak about your experiences and yourself. I work through a feminist, anti-oppressive lens.

My approach to therapy is warm, honest, playful and transparent. I will help you understand the processes of therapy and what might be going on for you. I want therapy to be useful, and I welcome honesty, feedback, and laughter in sessions. I understand that you are where you are right now and that we can make movement from there in ways that make sense to you.

I graduated with my Master’s in Counselling Psychology in 2017. For the last 6 years, I have worked with survivors of trauma – including people who have experienced sexual violence, familial violence, racial trauma, workplace trauma, and homophobia, among others – to address and process their experiences.

I use tools from many different therapeutic models and will weave them into our work, creating individualized treatment plans. The modalities I draw from include Polyvagal Theory, Structural Dissociation Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Narrative Therapy, among others.

I have seen the benefits of therapy both as a therapist and as a client. I welcome the opportunity to connect with you through a free, 15 minute consultation. Here, we can speak and decide if therapy with me will be right for you. I offer sliding scale rates for a set number of clients – please inquire with me about this. I look forward to speaking with you!
