Hi, I’m Emma (she/her). I’m a registered clinical social worker (MSW, RSW) currently specializing in brief, behaviour- and solutions-focused psychotherapy and groups for young adults. I’m also passionate about social justice, activism, sexuality and gender diversity, research, and social policy. It was my own experiences of mental health challenges and volunteering as a sexual assault crisis counsellor that inspired me to change career paths from an online editor/community strategist to full-time mental health clinician.
I work from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and harm reduction perspective. I centre radical genuineness, non-judgment, and collaboration in my work. My practice is shaped by narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), mindfulness, body awareness, and relational psychotherapy.
The other important parts of myself include: being a bisexual intersectional feminist, cyclist, writer, aunt, daughter, tarot enthusiast, and dog devotee.
