Let’s get to know each other

I am a queer psychotherapist specializing in anxiety, depression, trauma, and neurodiversity (ADHD, autism, etc). My work is explorative, present-oriented, and trauma-informed. In honouring our past we can cultivate awareness of our present, and move toward a future in alignment with our goals. It is imperative to me that you feel empowered during your journey – I seek to provide the conditions where you can feel safe to process your experiences and examine your vulnerabilities in a supportive environment.

My background of art and play therapy is invited into session at the client’s request. These alternate modalities can provide insight and supplement communication when speaking is difficult.

Thoughts on Trauma

I am no stranger to painful experiences from my past creeping into my present in unhelpful ways. What I have found most important about these moments is processing the distressing experience at a later time; a time when I feel grounded and have the ability to be with myself without being mean to myself. I would be honoured to create that time with you.

Thoughts on Neurodiversity

From a young age I understood my brain processed differently than the people around me. While there was so much beauty in that, existing in a world that wasn’t built for brains like ours or by brains like ours is challenging. We might not have as many opportunities to feel seen. We might be lonely. I’ve learned that while some labels are given to us, other identities are discovered. Our therapy sessions are a place where you are welcome to explore the way you think and feel. 

Your beauty, like the ocean, is immeasurable by the surface.
