I believe people are the experts of their own experience and that everyone has a powerful innate capacity for healing. My role in our therapy is to listen closely and carefully, and to support you in ways tailored to your individual needs so that you may understand yourself more deeply, heal in the ways you want to, and make whatever changes you see fit. Therapy is a collaborative process and together we will find a way of working that feels right for you. Your needs, as you define them, will guide our work together.
My approach is client-centred and rooted in non-judgement, empathy, and a desire build a unique supportive relationship with each person I work with. My training in a relational model of psychotherapy means that I pay close attention to the ways that relationships, both past and present, shape people's experiences and ways of being. It also means that I place a great deal of importance on the quality of the relationship between myself and each client, with an eye to what happens in the here-and-now of the therapy we do together.
As a therapist I am sensitive to the ways that structural oppression, social bias, and stigma, can impact emotional health. My approach is grounded in the principles of anti-oppression and intersectional feminism. I value and affirm diverse identities and life experiences and everyone is welcome in my practice.
