Maverick offers intuitive sessions that blend tarot, peer support, and counselling methods to create a space for trans and non-binary people to explore what it means to embody their whole self. They ground their practice in anti-oppressive, abolitionist, and queer healing perspectives in an effort to center lived experiences of all who access their services.

Want to learn more about this service’s work with Two-Spirit, trans, LGBQ+ people?

We invite all service providers listed on MindMapBC  to answer the following questions. These questions were developed in collaboration with community members, researchers, and mental health and other service providers. They're intended to help us understand what a service provider or organization is doing to affirm and support sexual and gender diverse service users.

See below for responses for this listing.

Want to learn more about our screening questions and filters?


Do you collect and use preferred names (rather than legal names) for all communications?

—Yes

I only need legal names if someone asks me to put it on their invoices so that they can submit them to whatever extended health or sponsorship services they may be accessing.

Are the forms used in your practice inclusive of various sexual orientations and gender identities (e.g., opportunities to fill in pronouns, etc.)?

—Yes

Do you and your colleagues ask about pronouns and use them appropriately?

—Yes

I am the only provider in my practice, I always use chosen pronouns and names.

Are you and your colleagues aware of what specific barriers may exist for trans individuals accessing your services?

—Yes

sliding scale is always available and I have a very flexible cancelation policy. if any of my trans clients have fundraisers currently active for surgery, HRT, or other affirming medical care I am open to sharing it on my social media and requesting mutual aid on their behalf.

Are you and your colleagues aware of what specific barriers may exist for Two-Spirit individuals accessing your services?

—Yes, to some extent

I have worked with some Two-Spirit people before and am aware of some barriers but I cannot comfortably call myself fully aware. I'm still very much learning from the Indigenous matriarchs and land defenders I know and follow.

Do you offer Indigenous 2S/LGBTQ+ specific resources, for example Indigenous Elders or Knowledge Keepers?

—No

Are you and your colleagues comfortable asking relevant questions about gender identity and sexual orientation?

—Yes

Are you and your colleagues aware of what specific barriers may exist for LGBQ individuals accessing your services?

—Yes

Can you and your colleagues distinguish gender/identity dysphoria/distress from mental health conditions?

—Yes

Does your practice have gender-neutral washrooms?

—No

online only practice

Are there clear anti-discrimination policies that include gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation in your organization or practice?

—Yes

Are all individuals involved in service provision actively engaged in decolonizing their practices and/or organization? If yes, please type below what actions you and/or your organization are taking.

—Yes

Finished and current education/training is listed on my website but some highlights relating to this are: Nahanee Creative's Cultural Protocols, Empathy and Safety course, Intro to Movement Trauma by TRACC, & Tarot for Liberation with Corinna Rosella.

Are all individuals involved in service provision actively engaged in anti-racist practices, policies, and systems in their care model?

—Yes

I am also work alongside other practitioners who are doing abolitionist, anti-racist, and decolonizing work through accountability meetings each month. We support each other to explore our practices and take action around integrating our knowledge into praxis.
