With 18+ years of experience in queer and trans health, gender-affirming care, inclusive sex therapy, and elder care most often dealing with dementia and palliative care. I challenge stigmas and oppressive narratives that compromise mental health and damage self-concepts and recognition of intrinsic value and worth. In recent years, my focus has been primarily on sex therapy and somatic approaches. My background in intersectional feminism and integrative theory reinforces my belief in the importance of community and social connections in healthcare.
I’m a proud member of organizations like the Canadian Professional Association for Transgender Health (CPATH), RNAO, and the CNO. I’m extremely passionate about collaborating with local agencies and healthcare providers to advance knowledge on gender-affirming care. I’m grateful to live and work on the Indigenous land of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Attiwonderonk, and Mississauga lands.
When I’m not working, I’m either with my dog Charlie on a walk, on my bike, or getting creative with painting, playing guitar, and working on my epic Spotify playlists. I spent some years living on an island out west, exploring self-sufficiency with permaculture principles, gardening, and oddly enough, learning how to barber because no one knew how to cut anything other than bowl cut.
Looking ahead, my goals for the next year revolve around self-care and physical well-being, especially after a recent spinal injury. I aspire to regain my active lifestyle and return to playing sports, but with much less rough contact.
I have a wide range of expertise when it comes to therapy, including elder care (with a focus on behavioural dementias and palliative mental health), gender identity, sexuality, neurodivergence, queer and trans health. My experience in sex therapy and sex education, also branches into BDSM, kink, ENM, and various dynamics of polyamory.
To sum things up, I’m passionate about inclusivity and holistic care. My journey and expertise reflect my commitment to creating safe spaces and advocating for marginalized communities, to make a positive impact on healthcare and society at large.
