Hi, Welcome to my bio!

 

I am here to help you with my decade of international experience working as an integrative therapist delivering services in multitudinous languages. I have worked with the Ministry and institutions under its aegis as well as in community settings and the university. Your needs are my priorities, I will draw from my toolkit to best suit your therapeutic or supervision requirements.

To provide you with holistic care, I draw from evidence-based therapies like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Existential Therapy, Humanistic Therapies, Reality Therapy and Internal Family Systems amongst others. I work from a multi-cultural, anti-oppressive and anti-racism (AOAR) framework with an intersectional feminist approach and a trauma-informed lens.

 

With me, you will be held in safety, compassion, understanding, and genuineness giving you the choice to make empowering decisions through a trusting relationship. I will leave no stone unturned to consider the various systems impacting your issues and how you can manoeuvre them with your internal sense of control. Each and everyone of us have strengths which we may often ignore, I will help you bring those to light so that the light within you shines.

With all my knowledge and skills acquired during my journey, I hope to enlighten your path and be your guide as you meaningfully carve out yours.  ​

Thank you for taking the time to read and I look forward to talking to you!

MA, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Hi, Welcome to my bio!

 

In my career journey, I have seven years of work experience with two Master degrees namely: Masters in Psychology and Masters in Counselling Psychology (in progress). Through my studies and work experiences, I have gained a wealth of exposure in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. I am currently registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying).

 

I work to create an atmosphere of care, compassion, and non-judgment for individuals seeking to improve their mental health, relationships, or resources to adapt and/or respond to life stressors.

I believe that healing is possible through connection and positive relationships. My approach is centered upon they way you as the client view your world and work with you to develop the most appropriate response to your current issues. In general, my approach is trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and anti-oppressive. I integrate strategies from cognitive-behavioural , acceptance and commitment, and emotion-focused therapies to support clients.

You can expect to feel accepted wholeheartedly, as you are, and feel safe to share anything that you bring into counselling. You will be met with warmth and compassion, and we will work together to foster healing and personal growth.
