I believe:

You have the instincts to heal yourself. Psychotherapy provides the empathic space for you to discover your path to wellness.

You are the expert on your own life. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process that honours your wisdom and experience.

I have spent the last ten years working as a counsellor in the areas of sexual health, sexual assault/trauma, breastfeeding and new parent support. I have a Master’s in Counselling Psychology & Psychotherapy from the University of Toronto as well as specialized training in trauma therapy and perinatal mental health. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the CRPO and a member of the OAMHP.

How Can I Help You?

As a psychotherapist, I work from a client-centred perspective, providing a safe environment for you to make meaning out of your own experiences and discover your best path forward. My background in feminist counselling and social justice work means that our work may consider how your own experiences and behaviour are influenced by the social systems that you exist in and how to address social barriers in order for you to thrive in your environment.

Diversity Statement & Land Acknowledgement

As a mental health professional, I am committed to inclusion, diversity, and equity as core values. 

I acknowledge that I am a settler, living and working on Indigenous lands. The territory of Tkaronto includes the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and the Wendat. I acknowledge them and any other Nations who care for the land as the past, present and future caretakers of this land. I recognize that I simultaneously participate in and benefit from a system of ongoing colonial oppression, and that I have a responsibility to challenge this system.
