THERAPEUTIC APPROACH

I offer client-centred, relational therapy to individuals that is psychodynamic and trauma-informed.

My practice is informed by a range of evidence-based approaches including mindfulness principles, attachment theory and neurobiology. My approach is non-judgemental, empathic and direct.

In our work together, we start with whatever is troubling you. Since everyone is complex and unique, each session will be specifically tailored to meet your particular and evolving needs. We will pay close attention to the ways in which your relationships, both past and present, function. We will be curious about what comes up in the present moment, unearth unconscious tendencies, and take note of the ways in which long-standing behavioural patterns and coping strategies may no longer be serving you.

I am conscious of the ways that systemic oppression, marginalization, and racism impact mental health, and I operate from an anti-oppressive, feminist framework. My practice embraces all genders, sexual orientations and is queer, trans and non-binary positive; everyone is welcome. I enjoy working with individuals on a wide range of psychological and emotional issues and bring to my therapeutic practice extensive experience working with 2SLGBTQ+ identified folks, artists, educators, leaders, students, and older adults navigating complex issues.
