I offer clinical consultation and supervision to individual therapists and agency teams working with LGBTQ+ youth, young adults and/or their families. I specialize in working with therapists seeing parents of trans/non-binary/gender questioning youth and young adults in their practices, who would benefit from attachment- and trauma-focused, neurobiologically-informed clinical support and/or psycho-educational tools to do this work effectively. I also enjoy working with therapists who see LGBTQ+ youth / young adults in their practice, who may not have extensive experience in adolescent development, attachment-focused practice, ethical issues that can emerge while working with youth under 16 and/or while working peripherally or directly with parents, and/or with LGBTQ+ issues.
My clinical orientation is attachment-focused, mindfulness- and trauma-informed and my lens is feminist, intersectional and sex-positive. I integrate learnings from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1: Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses and Traumatic Memory) and neurobiology into my supervision/consultation work, and enjoy supporting therapists to engage with self-of-therapist issues that emerge in practice with LGBTQ+ youth/young adults and their families.
I offer remote sessions by phone or on a secure video platform for those therapists practicing outside the GTA.
Please see my “Credentials and Trainings” page for more information about my background in these areas, or contact me to discuss whether your consultation needs fall within my scope of practice. I look forward to hearing from you.
