Broad Clinical Focus
I have specific interest and clinical expertise in the treatment of trauma and PTSD, self esteem, and relationship difficulties. However, I have equally valuable experience providing treatment related to anxiety and stress, adverse childhood experiences, depression, dissociative disorders, emotion identification and regulation, grief and loss, identity, learning challenges, life transitions, personal growth, sex and sexuality, and more. Check my Areas of Expertise for a full list of client concerns treated.

Integrative Treatment Approach
Rather than using a standardized or "one-size-fits-all" approach to treatment, I rely on an integrative approach pulling from a wide range of therapy types. This ensures that the techniques and theoretical perspectives I employ to guide our therapy are a good fit for you and for your concerns. I encourage you to be open with me about what you are hoping your therapeutic journey will look like — you are the expert on you!
I provide long-term psychotherapeutic services. This means that, unlike centres which provide only a set number of sessions, my clients decide the pace, frequency, duration, and necessity of therapy according to their needs. While some clients choose to attend therapy only until they feel better, others choose to engage in 'life-long' therapy or monthly mental-health 'check ins'. Ultimately, you should feel in control of your therapy experience.
Anti-Oppressive & Culturally Mindful
I have clinical expertise supporting sex workers, new migrants to Canada and those with refugee backgrounds.
I am a member of, and have experience supporting members of, both the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community. I am allied with the HIV/AIDS community. I am also sex- and kink-positive.
As you move through the experiences of your past, know that no matter what happened, your being here, vibrant and alive, makes you worthy. You alone are enough.
