As a self-identified queer person of colour, Andy brings a unique perspective to supporting people living with challenges associated with cultural identity, sexual health, sexuality/gender identity, and relationship dynamics. Drawing on his extensive clinical experience as a HIV and primary care nurse, Andy works from a perspective of strengths-based resiliency in conjunction with an anti-oppression, trauma-informed, and sex positive lens to help clients navigate through the challenges they encounter as a result of their intersecting identities.
I am trained in a variety of therapeutic modalities, including Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Strengths Based Therapy, Mindfulness/Meditation Practices, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), and Trauma Informed Therapy. I use a collaborative approach that is based on mutual respect, trust, and compassion for the self and others. My goal is to help you develop an understanding of your challenges and develop practical strategies to support your goals.
I believe that therapy should be a safe and non-judgemental space where you can explore your innermost thoughts and feelings. I am here to guide you through your journey of self-discovery as you work towards reclaiming your authentic self filled with love, compassion, and empathy.
If you are interested in working with me, please don't hesitate to reach out. I would be happy to answer any questions you have and schedule a free consultation.
