My Approach to Helping

My body-centred, queer-aligned, and trauma-informed approach helps you feel more connected to yourself by exploring your needs, wants, values, strengths, and areas of growth. I help you work through what’s in the way of affirming these vital parts of you. When you feel more connected to yourself, your life improves, and symptoms are alleviated.
