Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
AREAS OF FOCUS
- Sexual Diversity

- Anxiety & Self-esteem
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (qualifying) and hold a master’s degree in counselling and psychotherapy with a collaborative degree in sexual diversity studies from the University of Toronto. I have earned two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Western Ontario, including an honours BA in psychology. My research focused on sexual communication and negotiation tactics utilized by BDSM practitioners.
“Therapy is attuning to the piece that lives unheard.”
I am a queer woman and second-generation settler with Lebanese ancestry. I have experience supporting folks around the topics of anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, family/relationship issues, sexuality, and gender. I have had the honour of working as a sex and BDSM educator for many years, teaching workshops with a focus on communication, harm-reduction, and pleasure. Additional topics of interest have included radical body acceptance, navigating non-monogamy, and online dating. My work is rooted in anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, intersectional feminist values.
I approach each session with compassion, humility, and curiosity. I seek to build an authentic connection with my clients and to co-create a space where no topic feels off-limits. The journey of healing and self-discovery looks different for everyone, and I advocate that each person deserves individualized care that addresses their unique needs and goals. I look forward to accompanying my clients on that journey so that we can make sense of it together.
