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).

“Freedom and healing begin outside of binaries.”
I am a white, queer, non-binary settler who works with individuals, couples and families. I approach psychotherapy understanding how lived experiences outside of dominant norms and narratives are often challenging and traumatic; greatly impact our relationships, mental health 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. My research interests include: the social determinants of health for 2SLGBTQIA individuals as well polyamory/non-monogamy and attachment.
If you are struggling with concerns related to identity or interpersonal relationships, I may be your ideal therapist. My therapy draws upon principles of cultural humility, anti-oppression, intersectionality as well as harm reduction, and incorporates techniques from narrative therapy, emotion-focused therapy and strength-based, solution focused modalities to help folks achieve their personal therapeutic goals.
