Hello and welcome! I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and relationship therapist with a background in working with people who have experienced oppression, trauma, and intersectional violence. My office is located in Chinatown, Vancouver on xʷməθkwəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh territories. I am available for appointments on weekday mornings and early afternoons Pacific Time, in person, by phone, and video. I am usually booked about one to two months in advance.
To assist you in reaching your goals, I support you to focus on developing your strengths. As an anti-oppression psychotherapist, I value your experiences based on culture, race, indigeneity, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexuality, age, disability, and spirituality. I often work with people who are of mixed ancestry, racialized, people of colour, migrant, queer, trans, Two-Spirit, non-binary, and intersex. With over two decades of experience in group facilitation, peer support, and community organizing, I am passionate about creating safer spaces for people of all communities, bodies, and backgrounds.
I work primarily with people who seek empowering ways to find relief from relationship issues, depression, anxiety, stress, and grief/loss. I bring special expertise in recognizing intersecting client issues in areas such as intergenerational trauma, resisting burnout, interracial relationships, racialized intimacy, reclaiming desire, and identity development. Many individuals and couples have come to see me for support around navigating power dynamics, work, family, sex, and creativity.
