Description

With over three decades of dedicated experience in community agency and private practice settings, I specialize in providing psychotherapy to individuals across diverse backgrounds, including gender-diverse and racialized communities. My therapeutic approach is deeply rooted in person-centered care, cultural sensitivity, trauma-informed practices, and anti-oppressive principles. I am committed to offering a safe and welcoming space for individuals navigating various forms of human suffering, such as psychopathology, anxiety, and interpersonal trauma. I also provide clinical supervision.
