Sometimes everything can feel like too much. How do we carry everything that’s happened to us and keep going? How do we process who we were and what we’ve experienced at the same time that we’re trying to grow towards the future? I will help you hold it all as we work through things. My approach is guided by you: the client. Together we will co-create a space that feels safe and expansive, for you to explore at your own pace. Like many people, I live at the intersection of many identities—what are you coming in with? What can we explore together? Therapy offers a space to figure out where you’re going and how you want to get there.
I am currently training at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP)—a rigorous graduate psychotherapy program accredited by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am also a member of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists (OSRP) and I am currently supervised by a TIRP faculty member. My approach is relational and collaborative. We don’t become who we are in a vacuum so it’s hard to heal in one. We will delve into the culture and background that shaped you as well as societal systems that impact you. My aim is to work authentically and inclusively with you through an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, class-conscious lens that is trans, queer and gender non-conforming positive. Everyone is welcome and I invite you to show up just as you are.
I know what it’s like to try to hold everything together alone. It’s lonely and overwhelming. Together we can build a space where we can hold anything you bring in. There is no issue or feeling too big, too much, or too messy that we can’t hold together. You don’t have to know how to start right now—let’s figure it out together.
