I am a Registered Psychotherapist currently working exclusively with the LGBTQ2S+ community and in fitness and nutrition coaching. My approach to therapy involves working with my clients to identify areas of difficulty in their lives, and helping them to move towards their values. I emphasize a client-centred approach, recognizing that each individual is unique and thus requires unique treatment and care. At this time, I am exclusively seeing clients via e-counselling, using a video platform called Zoom.

I have experience providing support to the LGTBQ2S+ community, and strive to provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space for you to discuss your difficulties, explore any confusing or difficult territory, and get to know yourself a little better. As an ally, I hope to provide you with the support to make any necessary changes that will help you move forward in your life. To learn more about LGBTQ2S+ services offered, click here.

I also have a passion for fitness and nutrition, and am a Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT), with my Fitness Nutrition Specialization. I believe that the body and mind are intrinsically connected, and in order to be mentally healthy, we have to be physically healthy, and vice versa.
