My Approach

I work from a queer, anti-oppression oriented, Narrative Therapy approach aimed at deconstructing and questioning the forces that work to harm, isolate, and silence us. My practice is rooted in the belief that deeper healing is possible when we pay attention to the stories we believe about ourselves and our place in the world. These internal and interpersonal stories have been forged through our relationships, our values, our fears, our beliefs, and the influence of social oppression and/or privilege throughout our lives. By fully identifying what forces have been controlling our narrative, we then have the power to make room for the many other stories of our lives that were once unseen. I understand this as innately spiritual and self-reflective work where we are invited to hold our own power and magic in deeper, more fulfilling ways. Investing in this journey is transformational for how you experience yourself and the world. I'm so excited to join you on your path of inner work

My Background

Having trained with the Vancouver School of Narrative Therapy, I am deeply curious about your story. My intention is to be a co-explorer with you as we investigate what has been interrupting how you know yourself. I hold space for your identities, experiences, relationships, and interactions with social oppression and/or privilege in order to understand your uniquely complex life story.
