I use they/them and she/her pronouns.
I have 5 years of experience in the social work field, working primarily in the areas of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and trauma. I am passionate about social justice and try to incorporate anti-racist, anti-colonial, anti-oppressive values into my therapeutic approach.
I identify as a feminist and I try to take an intersectional approach. I try to be an ally to marginalized communities I am not a member of, but I recognize that allyship is a process and not an identity.
I have lived experience of trauma and mental health struggles. I am a queer person who is raising two queer kids with several other co-parents in downtown Hamilton. In my spare time, I enjoy being a huge nerd about pop culture, crafting things for the people I love, and listening to science and true crime podcasts.
