My pronouns are she/her.
I am passionate about helping individuals and organizations change and thrive. I am a non-judgmental, compassionate therapist who provides assistance with a variety of issues, including anxiety and stress management, grief, depression, and interpersonal violence and relationships. I aim to work collaboratively, respectfully offering support, encouragement, insights, constructive feedback and practical tools to empower you to take action in order to cultivate a life that is congruent with your core values.
I also provide external supervision for management and front line community workers. My focus is on helping community workers stay safe and ethical and ‘in’ the work. I have provided trainings to non profits on various topics from boundaries, team solidarity, empathy and avoiding burn out.
I have a decades of experience and expertise in working with women who have experienced all forms of interpersonal violence. Together we can work through your current or historical experience of violence. I believe you and I believe in your resistance.
I am a registered clinical social worker (#3403) whose passion for narrative therapy first developed in New Zealand where I trained in the modality and worked with families and individuals. At its root, Feminist Narrative Therapy is a practice that looks at your life stories and how they have shaped you to be the person you are today. It is important to know that you do not have to identify as a feminist for us to work together, however feminism, does inform my work and world view.
In my practice I view you as the expert in your life, and will be guided by your knowledge to develop a counselling experience that works for you.
