Listening to people with curiosity and attentiveness has always been central to my way of
Becoming a parent strengthened and deepened this inclination: my children taught me the
value of being present, still, and waiting to see what would be offered to the space I held
open. Counsellor training expanded my knowledge of societal systems, and taught me the art of
asking good questions. With continued self-reflection and in a spirit of collaboration, I walk
alongside people facing diverse and interlocking challenges.
I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space in which clients can reflect upon their own
strengths, challenges, barriers and ways of healing. My role is then to help them bring forward and cultivate their own internal wisdom. I bring to this a knowledge of human experience, systems of
oppression (both external and internalized), and justice oriented healing strategies. At a more
personal level, I would like the experience of "love" to be or become present in all of our lives.
My areas of focus are:
Navigating life transitions, including end of life
Ageing and eldership
Fear, depression and anxiety
Trauma and intimate partner violence
Loss and grief
Exploration of gender identities
Traditional and non-traditional intimate and familial relationships, including non-monogamous,
polyamorous, and queer/LGBTQ
I am trained in collaborative, person-centered, and strength-based approaches including
solution-focused, narrative, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed and response-based modalities.
I offer counselling in English and French. The full fee for individuals is $110 per 50-minute
session and $120 for couples or families. I offer sliding scale fees starting at $30 for persons
facing financial barriers. As I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, most extended health
plans provide full or partial coverage.
