A therapist who fits for you is one of the most important factors in the success of your therapy. So let me tell you a bit about myself and you can decide whether that resonates for you.
I'm a Registered Psychotherapist who comes to this work with an evolving anti-oppressive lens. I'm curious about the ways power and privilege influence the issues that people find themselves struggling with. Our struggles do not develop in isolation but within a social context of social norms, privileges and places of intersectionality.
For more than 30 years, I've worked with clients of all ages around a wide range of issues including loss, anxiety, depression, stress, relational conflict, interpersonal trauma, and life transitions. I work comfortably with individuals, couples and families. I have extensive experience working with teens and parents around sexual health.
The land that I live and work on is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe and Mississaugas of the Credit Nations. The treaties between the settlers and the Indigenous peoples were not honored and respected by the former. As a result, much trauma and hardship has been experienced by Indigenous peoples and the land has been exploited. As a descendant of white settlers, I am committed to learning the truth of this country’s history and playing my part in dismantling systems of oppression.
