" As a mental health clinician for the past 15 years and counting in the public health and social services network, I have had the honor in working and advocating with clients of diverse ages, ethno-cultural and racialized communities, and identity groups. I bring a transcultural intersectionality approach in helping individuals and couples experiencing distressing emotions and interpersonal challenges. 

Through couple and family therapy training, internship at the McGill University Sexual Identity Centre (MUSIC), as well as member on transgender research, I have developed a growing proficiency and strong interest in working with 2SLGBTQIA+ racialized, immigrant clients and couples. As an accredited family mediator, I work with parents and couples in negotiating an amicable separation agreement in the hope of maintaining healthy co-parenting relationship.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative partnership in which your strengths and resiliency takes center stage as you are helped in maneuvering through life challenges and unresolved trauma. Through adopting an affirmative/integrative systemic approach, I vow to honor your intersecting stories, to be your ally, help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life."
