I offer clinical consultation to individual therapists and agency teams working with LGBTQ+ adults, youth and/or their families. I have worked for the past 18 years with and within these communities and have trained other providers on working around gender and sexual orientation from an intersectional, trauma-informed, gender-affirming, attachment-focused lens.
I specialize in working with therapists seeing families of trans/non-binary/gender questioning youth/young adults who would benefit from clinical support and/or psycho-educational tools to do this work effectively. I also enjoy working with therapists who see LGBTQ+ clients in their practice who may not have extensive experience with LGBTQ+ communities and/or with clinical issues such as: supporting clients questioning their gender identity or in early transition, supporting clients questioning their sexual orientation, supporting clients struggling with internalized bi-phobia, homophobia, transphobia and/or transmisogyny, supporting clients with struggles coming out to spouse, parents, children or in the workplace, supporting clients navigating open relationships, polyamoury etc.
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 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.
