About

Why does being me feel so difficult? If you’re asking yourself this question, it's perhaps because what used to help you cope with life is no longer working. But your suffering is not your fault. I'll walk with you on your journey towards discovering and unburdening the parts, feelings, and needs in yourself that have been silenced. I work predominantly with racialized, neurodivergent, and LGBTQ+ people experiencing anxiety, depression, self-criticism, emotional difficulties and other complex-PTSD symptoms. My goal as your therapist is to help you write a new self narrative that is more liveable, authentic, and empowering.
My practice focuses on processing of complex-trauma (e.g., adverse childhood experiences, racial/sexual oppression, neurodivergence, intergenerational). I draw from Emotion-Focused, Internal Family Systems, and Narrative therapeutic techniques. My work is guided by the principles of anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, and strength-based approaches.
Finding a therapist with working knowledge in intersectional oppression and its impacts can be a challenge. As a queer of colour and neurodivergent therapist with lived experience of mental health struggles and recovery, I am committed to creating a warm space of validation, trust, and optimism for my clients. Please visit KizukiWorks.ca for more details.
