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).
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.
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).
Complex Trauma & PTSD
Drug & Alcohol Use
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.
