I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and I am a member of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists (OSRP). I am governed by CRPO Professional Practice Standards and abide by their Code of Ethics. I am also a student of the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy, an intensive experiential and clinical training program in psychodynamic, intersubjective, relational psychotherapy accredited by the CRPO.
For over a decade I have had the pleasure of supporting community-led empowerment and wellbeing initiatives. I remain committed to social transformative justice in my therapy practice, including through an ongoing heart-led interrogation of white/colonizer supremacy, patriarchy, and heteronormativity.
I am a therapist, but I am also a lifelong learner and client. I meditate, create, move, research, and engage in personal weekly therapy and supervision so that I continue to grow and evolve, and can show up for clients with accountability, presence, and an open heart. If there are particular things you would like to learn in our work together, I will be your learning partner.
As a relational therapist, I understand that some of our most basic human needs are to belong, to be understood, to be valued and seen for who we are, and to be loved. When these needs are not met, we can experience a wide range of challenges in ourselves and in our relationships with others.
Although I know this life is filled with uncertainty, heartbreak, confusion, overwhelm and un-nameable wounds, I have also found that there is profound potential for meaningful connection, clarity, and joy. Let’s work together to learn new ways of navigating life’s struggles and rediscover the magic of your existence.
