I want to acknowledge that Guelph is situated on treaty land that is steeped in rich indigenous history and home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis people today. As human beings we have a responsibility for the stewardship of the land on which we live and work. Please let us acknowledge the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation from whom this land was unlawfully purchased, The Neutral peoples, and the Anishinabek Peoples on whose traditional territory we are meeting on with a promise to do better.
I welcome all clients, in all bodies, and from all backgrounds. I am 2SLGBTQIA+, BIPOC, Women & Differently Abled affirming.
I specialize in: women's issues, psychedelic psychotherapy & chronic pain. Have you begun to go through the day feeling like what you do is the same thing over and over with no joy or purpose? The things you used to find fulfilling no longer are. You wonder, what’s the point? You may be having an existential crisis or dark night of the soul which is usually met with bigger life questions and a deep yearning to find your true purpose. If this rings true for you, you’ve come to the right place. Together we can explore what is underneath those feelings and we can gently unwind them while slowly building to a purposeful life for you.
For a purposeful life you do not have to be pain free & we can build strategies so that you can regain your hope and dreams for the future. Perhaps you have heard of psychedelics and that they could help with some of these feelings. If you choose to use psychedelics we could maximize the experience & minimize risk using something called harm reduction. If you have used psychedelics & had a challenging experience studies show it can be really helpful to unwind what you remember with a therapist. *Please understand I do not promote or source illegal substances but I do offer a safe space virtually from the comfort of your home to explore this.

What you may need and I can support in individual sessions:
Deep, non-judgmental and reflective listening
A personal and empathetic understanding of chronic pain, otherhood or purpose
Psychedelic and Plant Spirit Medicine Learning
virtual nature therapy /inner child or critic work/guided visualization/lineage or parts work to aid in the therapeutic process
Encouragement to develop your own belief system with which you resonate
I offer: a deep and somewhat personal understanding of persistent illness/pain/disordered eating & trauma. I offer virtual nature therapy that I've seen helps incredibly with anxiety & depression. I do psychedelic harm reduction & integration work/ energy, inner-child & inner critic work/ parts & legacy work/ guided imagery & much more. If you are needing to look into things like: How to live a purposeful life with pain, healthy relationships, other-hood, gender identity, body image, ED, sexuality, I am here to help you with that & can hold space for you . A typical session: Within the context of deep, non-judgmental and reflective listening we often start with a grounding to help the nervous system get to a place where it feels safe to look at things. This is a specialty of mine - guided imagery and meditation. From there you share - You decide what you need & I hold space for that. Often we involve the subconscious with various modalities & then end with an oracle card reading if you choose.
Disclaimer: I am here to support you at any time in your harm reduction plan & integration needs with psychotherapy. Currently in Canada psychedelics are illegal & I do not offer/source/promote illegal activities. I do advocate for harm reduction, education & plant spirit medicine/ psychedelic integration if needed. When you are ready for change and ready to transform you are most welcome to reach out for support from me on your journey of self discovery.
