It may be helpful for you to know that I am queer and I am a parent. I am a former varsity and semi-professional athlete and my experiences in sport have
drawn me to relational, collaborative work that appreciates the value each person has to bring.
Through my personal and professional involvement in therapy, I have witnessed the transformative impact that an affirming therapeutic relationship can have on an individual’s overall well-being and sense of fulfillment and security in relationships.
My life experiences have helped inform my therapeutic lens: the importance of honouring each person's strengths and resources, while acknowledging the systemic and structural barriers that many face in accessing support.
I hold a BA Honours degree from Dalhousie University and an MEd in Counselling from Acadia University. I am a Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT) and Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I am governed by the code of ethics of the NSCCT as well as the CCPA. I am a graduate of the Foundations of Applied Mindfulness Meditation certificate program through the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies.
