Therapy

First and foremost, my role as a therapist is to provide individuals, couples, and families with a safe space to explore their inner world(s).

Our Relationship

I am a relationally focused therapist, which means our connection is an integral part of therapy. If you are experiencing an important transition in life, such as getting married, separating (or divorcing), starting a family, and/or preparing to retire, I invite you to work with me.

If you are suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, low self-esteem, post-traumatic stress disorder and/or past trauma, let’s work together to find ways to identify, address and reduce your suffering.

If you are experiencing relational distress, I invite you to work with me to find new ways to be and to relate to your partner.

Trauma Informed Psychodynamic Therapy

My practice is trauma informed and I tailor my therapeutic interventions to your specific situation.

I predominantly use psychodynamic therapy, attachment-based therapy, and mentalization therapy. However, I use an integrative approach with clients which means I recognize there is no “one size fits all” approach.

Expertise

I have extensive experience working with individuals seeking to resolve issues related to sex, gender, and sexuality (e.g. identity formation, sexual shame, conditioned sexual responses as a result of sexual abuse, etc.).

I specialize in providing services to people who have experienced human rights and labour rights violations, including LGBTQIA+ populations, and people with non-normative lifestyles (e.g. people in non-monogamous relationships, kink/BDSM relationships, sex workers and people who use drugs).

Treatment Areas

I offer free 30-minute consultations to those who feel they would benefit from getting to know me on the telephone before working with me.

Rates

If, for whatever reason, this does not fit your budget, please contact me to discuss. I offer sliding-scale and pro-bono services for new and existing clients who are experiencing financial hardship and/or who are members of sex worker, queer, trans and/or BIPOC communities. It fits within my values to provide sliding-scale and pro-bono services to those who would not otherwise be able to afford therapy. Sliding-scale rates start at $30 + HST per session.
  • Individual Therapy $200/session
