My Approach

As a queer, gender-diverse, and neurodivergent therapist who lives with chronic illness, I have experienced how rewarding it is to find language that describes who we are and how much it means to be seen and supported in telling and retelling the stories that shape us. I am honoured to walk alongside folks as they build lives and relationships that reflect who they are and what they value. My lived experience is a part of the knowledge that I bring to therapeutic work and, at the same time, I believe that your knowledge and insights are essential to the work we will do together. 

My sessions are innovative, collaborative, and focus on strengths. I work with a variety of age groups and with different kinds of relationships, including with children (ages 8+), adolescents, adults, couples, caregivers, and families. I specialize in individual and relational therapy, offering support to individuals within the LGBTQ+, neurodiverse, chronic illness, and disability communities, and their support systems.

I developed the therapeutic skills that I bring to my practice through my clinical work at the Maplewoods Centre, the Master of Science in Couple and Family Therapy that I received at the University of Guelph, the research project I completed on supporting trans and gender-diverse youth and their families, and my previous career in communications. I am trained in five models of therapy, and I love to find ways to adapt these interventions and therapeutic skills to draw on multiple forms of learning or ways of being and to invite creativity, self-expression and problem-solving.
