I believe that everyone has the innate capacity to heal themselves. While our habitualized thought patterns, habits and emotional responses muddy the waters and interrupt this process, these patterns initially developed to keep us safe in some way. With compassionate spaces, meaningful support and tailored therapeutic techniques to meet your unique needs, we can walk together to remove these barriers, reconnect you to your wholeness and allow opportunity for your innate healing to flow once again.
I aim to meet everyone where they are at. I honour every step - little or big - made towards your healing. My approach is always trauma-informed, intersectional, anti-racist and anti-oppressive, strengths-based and client-centred.

  • Phobias

  • Hoarding
  • Infertility

 I honour all expressions of diversity! To all individuals experiencing some form of marginalization as a result of an aspect of their identity, I want you all to experience inclusive, safer, respectful, accommodating, transparent and compassionate spaces. If you are needing more or less of something, I value open communication to strive for this to the best of my ability. Welcome all - including but not limited too - LGBTQ2S+, BIPOC, bodies of all shapes and sizes, sex positivity, sex worker allied, HIV/AIDS allied, all abilities and disabilities, survivors, newcomers, all expressions of religion and spirituality.
With over 8 years of therapeutic experience, I aim to support you in living your best life - by whatever that means to you! 
For folks interested in virtual counselling, I have attended training to adjust all of the therapeutic modalities that I offer into a virtual format. Therefore, any treatment approach that you and I collaborative devise to meet your goals and needs will have maintained its' efficacy. I know many individuals feel skeptical that online counselling is not as effective as in person. This can be the case; however, I have taken measures to prevent that.
I offer counselling through a HIPAA compliant video communication format - for your safety and security. 
If you have any more questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time. I offer 15 minute free consultations upon request!
