About me

Taking a unique approach to therapy 

As a Neurodivergent Queer Therapist (they/them), I understand the importance of a welcoming, understanding, and non-judgmental space.

During my training, I explored different aspects of myself, including my late diagnosis as autistic. This taught me that healing and self acceptance looks different for everyone. I care about creating a welcoming and anti-oppressive therapy space for people who might not fit the traditional therapy model.

I aspire to educate the counselling community about how to work positively with neurodivergent people and how to adapt our approaches to be more accessible to all. Equal access to therapy is something I care deeply about and feel that reasonable adjustments must be embraced for people with different physical, neurological, and mental needs.
