My Approach to Helping

Curiosity is what drew me into the field of therapy and remains at the core of my practice. I enjoy working with clients as they explore self identity and strive to make meaningful change, whether by building on existing skills or exploring new ones. My style is warm, non-judgmental and collaborative, and I am keen on finding the most effective tools for my clients as they seek empowerment and healing in their life. Nothing brings me more joy and fulfilment than better understanding a situation, especially if it is radically different from my own lived experience. I am here to learn with you, support, guide and challenge you, laugh and cry with you. Welcome!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I feel fortunate to have spent the majority of my five-year clinical career working in community mental health, primarily with adults, at all stages of recovery. Community work, in addition to individual therapeutic settings, has given me vast experience in working with trauma, substance use, serious mental illness, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I employ an integrative approach, largely informed by systems theory and attachment theory, while utilizing practical skills drawn from CBT and DBT. My approach is trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and LGBTQIA+ affirming, while making every effort to integrate how an individual's specific identity group can be impacted by societal structures.
