About

I enter the therapy room as a human first, therapist second. My approach derives from an understanding that our many identities (culture, gender, race, sexuality, ability, etc.) greatly impact and inform our life experiences and mental wellbeing.

As a parent myself, I understand the tremendous work it takes to raise our little ones and how vastly different each stage of parenthood can feel. As a queer woman, a mother, an immigrant and a survivor of sorts, I join my clients with my lived experiences, education and effective therapeutic skills.

I am passionate about supporting parents of all seasons because I believe that parenting is a marathon, not a sprint: with opportunities to self-reflect, get informed and develop skills along the way. By offering an individualized, warm and safe space, I am here to join my clients where-ever they are on their parenting journey.
