"To my mind, empathy is in itself a healing agent. It is one of the most potent aspects of therapy, because it releases, it confirms... If a person is understood, he or she [or they] belong(s)." - Carl Rogers
I know finding the “right” therapist can feel hard. I’m hopeful that we’ll be a great fit. I create a space where you’re free to think, feel, and speak authentically. Life can feel challenging and isolating to navigate – you’re not alone in feeling like the world is on fire. I believe our past experiences affect us now, and figuring out patterns and taking time to understand ourselves can help us be more present, comfortable, and kind with ourselves. I’ll listen to you without judgement and support you as you heal.
I leave space for consideration and discussion about how trauma, colonization, and social systems can affect us. I understand that social and cultural identities can interact to make life harder or easier. I work with an intersectional lens and I’m a passionate ally of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.

Looking for a therapist is a great first step in treating yourself with compassion and kindness. If you think we could be a good team, I would love to hear from you! We can have a quick conversation about the kind of support you’re looking for and you can get a sense of whether you’d like to book a session!
