About

Career/Mental Health/Hypnotherapy ..... As a culturally competent counsellor, I have an understanding of the cultural nuances that influence the Black/BIPOC community in the GTA. Whether it's personal, intercultural, intergenerational, workplace/educational discrimination, systemic barriers or micro-aggressions ... These things will affect how you view yourself and your place in our society. While the majority of my clients are from the African diaspora, I’m happy to meet with anyone who wants to share their story with me and welcome me as a supportive member of your village.
I approach counselling from a holistic lens incorporating Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Career Counselling, Psycho-education, Creative Art Therapy & Nature Therapy. I also welcome the incorporation of religious/spiritual beliefs into our sessions and I'm cannabis friendly.
My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, self-worth, interpersonal relationships, racial identity, body image, inter-generational patterns/trauma, addictions & career strategizing. My goal is to get to know you as an individual. By listening to your story, I hope to understand your unique experience & help guide you to achieving your therapy goal.
