My philosophy is that everyone needs a witness.

 

Whether life is going to plan, is an enigmatic disaster, or anywhere in between, having a safe space to work through our thoughts, express ourselves safely and grow is essential. Admitting that we need help can be challenging. Instead, I believe in having support ready, and in your tool belt, for all of life’s moments.

 

It is my belief that the therapeutic process allows space for the entire spectrum of emotions and I often use humour, compassion, and self-love practices to bring light into this precious work. I am a passionate believer in healing, LGBTQ+, sex positive, and I enjoy walking alongside my clients with an insatiable curiosity as they journey through the winding road called life.

 

We all face many barriers as we try to live our fullest lives: trauma, low sex drive, emotional dysregulation, systemic pressures, anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, toxic family systems, abuse, addiction, oppression, etc. & at times it may feel like you have lost yourself.

 

With my academic background in low sexual desire, empowerment, sex positive feminism, sociology, arts & cultural management, body acceptance, yoga, expressive arts, and group therapy, I believe that together we can create the space for you to reconnect with your sense of self, create ongoing safety, and work towards long term sustainable wellness.

 

I am committed to continuing my education and ensuring you are given the best care possible for your needs.

 

Life is The Forever Journey, it would be an absolute honour to be a part of yours.
