Founder & Clinic Director

Registered Psychotherapist


  • Healthy Relationships

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I completed my Master’s degree in clinical and counselling psychology with a collaborative degree in sexual diversity studies from the University of Toronto; in addition to an honours B.A. in psychology with a minor in sexuality, marriage and family studies from the University of Waterloo.

“Healing and liberation begins outside of binaries.”

I am a white, queer, non-binary settler living, healing, unlearning and reconciling on traditional lands that I experience as healing and know to be sacred. I work with individuals, couples, polycules as well as families. I approach psychotherapy from the understanding that our mental health and collective health is inherently tied to oppressive systems such as racial-capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and the colonial mental health industrial complex and that norms such as heteronormativity, cisnormativity and monoganormativity significantly impact our relationships and quality of life. I have over 20 years of experience in the field of sexual and mental health and offer knowledge, skills and wisdom informed by therapeutic and educational work related to sex, gender, sexuality and relationships.

If you are struggling with concerns related to grief/loss/transition, identity formation/integration, interpersonal relationships, or embodiment, I may be your ideal therapist. My approach draws upon principles rooted in eastern collectivist decolonial practices, cultural expansiveness, anti-oppression, intersectional-feminism as well as harm reduction, and incorporates techniques from somatic-narrative therapy, mindulfness-cognitive behavioural therapy as well as emotion-focused therapy modalities to help folks unlearn, learn and heal themselves through relationship.
