Hi there! My name is Holly Hollems (she/her) and I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist offering individual, couples/relationship, and sex therapy.

  • My Approach

    I want my office to be a safe space for you, as you are. In a session with me, you can expect a lot of curiosity and humour. Therapy can often feel stiff and formal, so I welcome informal language (meaning: you can swear in session and talk about memes). My approach is adaptable to what you need and what helps you, so I can be gentle or I can be challenging! Since I work with sexuality, I always respect that we are starting off as strangers and you may want to keep some things private. My job is to support you in your journey.

  • My Philosophy

    My work as a therapist is sex-positive, trauma-informed and client-centered, drawing from the Feminist, Internal Family Systems, and Attachment models of therapy. When working with couples, relationships, and the infinite constellations of polyamory/consensual non-monogamy, I will often add Emotionally Focused Therapy. Part of what drew me to the practice of therapy was how much I benefited from my own therapy. It was reaaallllyyy hard for me to find a therapist that I felt safe speaking to openly, especially about relationships and sexuality, so I decided to become that therapist!

  • My Why

    Having benefited from my own therapy, I wanted to offer a safe place for others to heal and grow. I struggled to find a therapist that I could talk to openly, especially around sexuality, sex, and relationships. So I decided to become the kind of therapist you can talk to about anything! Whether it's polyamory, internet memes, BDSM/kink, 2SLGBTQIA+ issues, and/or neurodiversity, I can offer you a space free of judgment and full of understanding.
