Hi Folks! Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about me.

I enter the therapy room as a human first, a therapist second. As a queer bi-cultural woman, an immigrant, a mama, & a survivor of sorts, I join you with my lived experiences, research, education, & effective therapeutic skills. By offering a warm, non-judgemental, empathetic, trusting, safe & affirming space,  I am here to meet your unique needs, uncover your personal strengths & create strategies to live the life you value & deserve.
I am committed to cultural humility & work under the philosophy that our multiple intersecting identities (race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, culture) greatly impact our life experiences and mental well-being.
My approach to therapy is integrative, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, anti-racist, intersectional, LGBTQ2IAS+ affirming, person-centered, and flexible. My background in Psychology, Queer & Sexuality Studies allows me to draw from multiple disciplines & offer my clients prevalent perspectives.  
I draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative techniques, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and follow a client-centered approach to support my clients.
