Biblical & christian psychotherapy: many languages (Eng/Fr/Creole/Hebrew) & cultures (Black, Caribean, Canadian). Seek Yeshua: find True Love & Perfect Peace. Your identity, the meaning of your earthly and eternal life (after death) flows from welcoming Yeshua, reading the Bible and praying: He is the Way (to God, The Creator), The Truth, The Life (John 3:16). As Savior and Lord, He will help you understand root causes of diseases, addictions, anxiety, depression, fears, sadness, stress. No medication or drugs can help you long term, as they only touch the symptoms of issues (with serious/tragic side effects), without healing you.

Do you wish your past didn't creep up to impact your present? Have you ever just felt stuck? If these questions speak to you as they do to me, I would be delighted to take the first steps toward wellness with you. Trauma and hardships can come in many different forms, and it is difficult to make the first move to seek support. It's exhausting, confusing, and at times even invalidating. I help folks to navigate their intersectional identities through the world to make it their own. I provide a safe and affirming space for you to process trauma through EMDR and TIR and to explore how you view the world and your place in it.

Seek first to understand is central to my work. There are many of us who have gone through life feeling misunderstood and judged and have felt the need to hide parts of our experiences to feel accepted in conversations. Taking the first step to begin talking about your experiences in ways that capture the essence of who you are can feel scary. Creating the space for open and honest conversations about what matters to you help me to better support your journey to self-discovery and growth.
