AREAS OF FOCUS
  • Sexual and Gender Diversity
  • Trauma and Its Impacts
  • Grief and Loss

I believe in creating space to tell our stories. Working from a narrative, client-centered approach, I support clients in understanding past experiences and working towards future goals. I practice from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, harm-reduction framework, and hold a commitment to dismantling colonial structures. My practice is sex-positive, kink-positive, and poly-positive. I promote disability justice, mutual aid, and care work within therapeutic communities.

“Sharing and shaping our stories towards healing.”

I have experience working with youth and adults in acute crisis, within both hospital and community settings. Comfortable sitting with and sharing grief, I invite those who have experienced loss, recent or historic, to bring any and all related feelings into the therapeutic space. Outside of therapy, I can be spotted hanging out with big dogs and reading beautifully diverse books.
