My Ideal Client

I support individual adults and adolescents with shifting from surviving to thriving. Together, we can help you find relief, self-compassion, and increase your quality of life. Clients often come to therapy with me to discuss healing from trauma, tending to attachment wounds, racial identity, and cross-cultural experiences. Together, we can help you improve your relationships, career, family life, and connection with your community.

My Approach to Helping

Working together with a compassionate and directive approach, I believe we can create more expansive understandings to gain insights and break cycles as we process your experiences. My goal is to partner with you to reclaim your life through talk and connection as has been done by our ancestors for generations. In therapy, we can help you get clarity and gain insights on patterns that no longer serve you. Therapy with me is a non-judgmental space where your whole self is welcome. We may explore past experiences, relationships, and the intersectionalities of your identities and communities, which can help us identify roadblocks to change and places to draw strength. Ultimately we will work together to ground you in your power as you dig deep to achieve transformative change.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a mixed-race therapist, with White (Italian & Irish) and Indigenous (Mi'kmaq) ancestors, I know how hard it can be to find time for self growth and care while living in oppressive systems. It can be even harder when we don't fit in a binary or see ourselves reflected in the spaces we live, work, or learn. I am guided by a liberation psychology framework, and I encourage the disruption of systems and beliefs that have perpetuated cycles of harm to our life ways, relationships, and self concepts. Outside of therapy, you may find me gardening with my hands in the soil, hanging out with my cats and dog, or enjoying a cup of coffee on a brisk morning walk.
