What kind of experience do you have working with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community? 

As a queer and transgender person, I have been drawn to working with other 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals. I have spent several years working in 2SLGBTQIA+ mental health, including creating or facilitating transgender support groups at the Studio 89 Cafe, Spectrum Kitchener/Waterloo, KW Counselling Services, and more. During my Master of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University, I interned at KW Counselling Services where I worked with 2SLGBTQIA+ adults and teens. I also helped plan and facilitate Gender Journeys, a Therapeutic/Psychoeducational group for gender diverse youth.  After graduating from my MSW, I worked with 2SLGBTQIA+ teens and pre-teens at Lutherwood Children's Mental Health Centre where I worked in both crisis intervention and long-term Dialectical Behavioural Therapy informed psychoeducation. I love working directly with 2SLGBTQIA+ children, teens, and adults so I decided to start my own practice where I can build my own 2SLGBTQIA+ affirming therapeutic practice.



What kind of experience do you have working with autistic clients or clients with ADHD.

As someone who is autistic and has ADHD, I love learning about people with shared identities. Did you know that autism is more commonly seen among gender-diverse populations than cisgender populations? This often means that my experience working with gender-diverse clients can go directly hand-in-hand with working with autistic clients. My experience working with gender diverse populations at Lutherwood Children's Mental Health Centre, KW Counselling Services, and my private practice, have often allowed me to gain invaluable experience working with autistic clients. I work with autistic client and clients with ADHD to help them better understand how their brain works and what coping skills or therapeutic interventions can help them overcome aspects of autism or ADHD that they are struggling with such as hyper/hyposensitivity sensory experiences with autism, lack of object permanence with ADHD,  overstimulation with either diagnoses, and much much more. I also work with clients to support them with self-esteem issues that can come with being neurodiverse in a world built for and by neurotypical people. It is not that neurodiverse people are less capable than neurotypical, but they might need to work harder to thrive in a neurotypical world.

Do you offer a sliding scale fee?

Yes, I do! I have some spots that allow me to reduce my counselling fees for clients who find that they are not in a financial place to pay the full session fee. If this is something you are interested in, please email me at


How often do clients typically book sessions with you?

I always start my answer to this question by saying that it depends on the client. I have clients that I see weekly, bi weekly, or every few weeks. It all depends on the schedules of clients and their needs. Some clients find that they benefit from the weekly support where others like having more time between sessions to spend more time thinking about what we discuss in sessions. It all depends on your comfort level and the amount of support you need/are comfortable with. I want you to feel good about the amount of sessions you book with me. If you are having trouble determining how frequently you would like to book your sessions, feel free to ask for my professional opinion.
