We are all doing our best with what we have, though sometimes it can feel like our best isn’t enough. As your therapist, I’ll work with you to adapt and grow with your trauma, develop coping skills, and help reroute any that may no longer be serving you, as well as build up your feelings of safety, compassion, validation, and care.
I am a person-centred and trauma-informed therapist using an integrative approach informed by internal family systems therapy and mindful self-compassion practices. I recognize the effect that trauma and lived experiences have on every person, and I combine therapeutic techniques and approaches in response to your own unique needs, circumstances, and therapeutic goals.
I work with adults who are looking to process trauma, develop coping methods, going through life transitions, and mental health challenges such as anxiety and depression. As your therapist, I’ll meet you where you’re at and find approaches that work best for you, your needs, and your personal history and experience.
My professional and educational background includes sexuality, gender, anti-oppression, and human development, including 8 years in the HIV sector working with diverse populations. I have an anti-oppressive, feminist, and inclusive approach to psychotherapy
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I have a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, as well as two Bachelor’s degrees in Sexuality and Psychology.
