The therapeutic space is one I deeply honour and cherish. Gaining the privilege of working with individuals who actively seek to embrace all parts of themselves, witnessing the courage and curiosity they exhibit when challenged, and being a small part of their healing and growth processes is indescribably precious to me.
Being able to witness the innermost world of my clients is one of the most humbling and priceless parts of being a therapist. I love the work I do, and I’m often asked “Don’t you get tired of working on people’s problems all day?” My response is simply that I don’t simply work on problems, I work with you!
As a queer-affirmative therapist, I take great care to consciously ask you how you would like me to address you and what your pronouns are, ensure I acknowledge and make space to discuss the unique life stressors you face, and work with you to see how we can make therapy as safe as possible. My focus is dual: ensuring both equality and equity. I facilitate sessions with gentle curiosity to draw attention towards any internalised shame, unconscious biases, and heteronormative stances (both mine and my clients’). We would work towards challenging any harmful inner dialogues unjustly entrenched by social conditioning and external systemic failures (capitalism, casteism, racism and colourism, accessibility and ablesim, patriarchy, social and legal exclusion, and neglect to name a few.)
I continually work towards compiling and verifying resources that you may require, and actively work towards being an ally to the queer and marginalized communities. Over time, I hope to co-create a space where all parts of your identity can be nurtured - not just accepted, but celebrated!
