It is important that therapy be a safe place for you, and that you feel respected, affirmed, and safe. The focus of therapy is a collaborative journey towards your self-awareness, self-growth, and empowerment of your change. I use a variety of counselling methods and approaches (i.e., eclectic) based on your specific needs, personality, and style. In particular, it is important to work with you to explore your identity and help you come to learn more about yourself and what you need, especially if you don't feel like you fit the "norm." In particular, I have experience working with people who have developmental disabilities, are immigrants or refugees, and those who identify under the LGBTQ* umbrella or who are gender- and sexually- diverse, polyamorous, kinky, and involved in sex work.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

The purpose of psychotherapy is change. Throughout your life you and your circumstances change and evolve. These changes are sometimes painful, often difficult, and open up doors to the possibility of greater self-awareness, strength, and happiness. Sometimes therapy can be painful, such as when you talk about feelings or experiences that you normally keep locked away. However, it is in this sharing and moving through what has happened that you will able to come out the other side, having learned something important, and having a better sense of yourself.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Therapy is a commitment - it takes time, money, and mental resources. For this reason, I offer all of my clients a "risk-free" complimentary chat with me to talk more about what can be expected in therapy, how it all works, and figure out how I might be able to help you. Financial issues shouldn't be a barrier to getting the help you need, so my services are available on a sliding fee scale.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Therapy is not about "fixing" you. Every person suffers in their lives, has negative experiences, or makes choices that they later regret. Many of us are ill, physically or mentally, and struggle to manage symptoms and pain. Just as you can break your arm, your spirit can be broken as well. Therapy is about helping you, no matter what your story is or mistakes you might have made in your life, to find meaning and process what has happened so that you can move forward in your life with the skills to make choices that fulfill and empower you.
