MA, RP (Qualifying)
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
AREAS OF FOCUS
- Relational Styles & Attachment
- Friendships & Kinship
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (qualifying) and hold a masters in counselling degree from Yorkville University. Throughout my education, my clinical interests focused on relational closeness, queer kinship, trauma, and how our relationships in our first families effect our communication and relational styles. I am a white, queer, settler who strives to work from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, anti-colonial, anti-ableist, and intersectional framework. I put particular attention to being neurodivergent affirming in my work. I believe that connection and community are integral parts of healing, while remaining attentive to the systems and pressures that exist within our communities. Community can be a group of people, you and your pet, or time spent in the forest; there are no limits to the validity of connections.
“Being present in connection, maps new ways to be present with ourselves.”
Alongside challenges, changes, and exploration, I also invite humor, curiosity, and playfulness in all its forms. You are the expert of your experience, and I will centralize you and your needs in how our time unfolds together. My goal is to create a comfortable space where you feel all the parts of yourself can be held and made visible, where the rigidity of binaries can be loosened and the space that creates can be explored together. I work with foundations in a variety of complimentary modalities, including attachment, narrative work, Internal Family Systems (IFS), mindfulness-based practices, and queer theory.
