AREAS OF FOCUS
- Gender Identity
- Relationship(s) with Food & Body
I am a queer, trans, neurodivergent, fat, disabled white settler on Turtle Island currently pursuing a Master of Social Work degree at Wilfrid Laurier University. I have previous experience working in eating disorders, trauma, harm reduction, fat liberation, disability justice, sex work advocacy, gender-based violence, and sexual & reproductive health.
“Healing happens in safe(r) relationships.”
I strive to cultivate a non-judgmental, anti-oppressive, anti-racist, collaborative, liberatory, and trauma-informed therapeutic space. I welcome clients in non-traditional relationship structures (e.g., open relationships, non-monogamy, relationship anarchy, polyamory, etc.) and am BDSM/fetish/kink affirming. You are the expert in your life and my goal is to support you in ways you find helpful, nourishing, and encouraging.
I use an eclectic therapeutic approach that draws from strengths-based, feminist, attachment, Internal Family Systems, and somatic therapies. Part of my approach includes contextualizing your embodied experiences of systemic oppression and noticing sites of resistance that have helped keep you, your kin, and your community safe amidst the targeted violence of white supremacy, colonization, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, fatphobia, saneism, whorephobia, xenophobia, serophobia, and classism. I also embrace an anti-diet and weight-neutral approach when discussing food/bodies and am particularly adept at moving alongside folks in larger bodies through challenges with eating and body image.
I currently work with folks aged 18+. I look forward to meeting with you!
