I understand that you might be nervous to come to an appointment, especially if you’ve had trouble with other services in the past. I create a space that is non-judgemental and comfortable. I look forward to meeting with you. I have experience working with LGBQ, Trans, and Nonbinary adults and youth, newcomers and refugees, and people experiencing difficulty with mental health and substance use. I am also a proud member of the trans community.
Regarding substance use, I have experience working with both harm reduction and abstinence based goals, but I also recognize that substance use can be a symptom of something deeper. Together we can work on addressing what’s underneath. Additionally, if you, your child or loved one are experiencing difficulties with gender identity or gender expression, coming out and navigating the sometimes confusing systems to receive medical care, I’d love to meet with you. I am particularly interested in acceptance and commitment therapy, narrative therapy, and mindfulness.
I have a sliding scale for those who need it, and more affordable full price sessions. I offer in person and virtual sessions. Let’s talk about what would work for you.
