Life is hard, and the challenges we meet in our relationships, work, and daily tasks can create tremendous stress and uncertainty. I provide a warm and comfortable environment where you and I can work as a team to unpack issues troubling you – I am non-judgmental, have a good sense of humour, and I thrive in supporting people through challenging times. As a mature woman, I have faced my own issues with anxiety, relationship stress, and parenting difficulties, and through my personal and professional experiences I have come to understand how powerful the psychotherapy process is at fostering self-awareness and emotional resilience.

Your childhood pain does not need to define who you are - today. Hello Community! Welcome to Ignite Counselling Services, we provide therapeutic support to members of the Black community. This is because we understand that within our community, many of us have experienced mistrust and betrayal when asking for help. This is why we tend to shy away from seeking support due to the fear of vulnerability and being judged. When you mask your feelings, you suppress your emotions which causes you to struggle and manage your stress and emotional pain in silence.

Therapy shouldn't feel like a chore. While it might sometimes be hard to hear what is discussed in therapy, overall you should leave feeling like you've gained something useful or even transformative. Over time, you should feel you are getting stronger, more resilient and have shed layers of fear and anxiety. Of course this process can be overwhelming at times and you might not always progress on the timeframe that you thought you would, but when therapy goes well, you should feel more settled and more clear about your life. You should gain understanding about yourself and others and have a renewed sense of purpose and passion

As a Registered Psychotherapist, I use a variety of modalities and approaches to treatment. My philosophy of growth relies on the facts that human beings are rational by nature, knowledge is based on experimental results, life's meaning is to be found in individuals, and that reality gains meaning through one's personal explanation of experiences. My practice focuses on helping individuals to understand and develop a greater understanding of their struggle through cognitive, affective, Behavioural and systematic intervention strategies that address wellness, personal growth and pathology.

Our feelings, thoughts and actions can have a significant impact on our ability to connect with others, achieve our goals and engage in the parts of life we find meaningful. These changes in ourselves can often be explained by challenging experiences or turbulent relationships, which leave us feeling depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed. Together, we'll work to create a safe environment where you feel empowered to discuss, process, and problem solve concerns surrounding relationships, self-esteem, trauma, identity, and other topics.

I strongly believe that each client has the capability for recovery, acceptance, and wellness. As a therapist, my role is to provide a safe and compassionate space to process thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be preventing clients from being the best version of themselves. I am a client-led, trauma-informed practitioner and am warm, genuine, and collaborative. Some approaches I draw from are Attachment Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness practices and Self-Compassion. I also utilize an intersectional, anti-racist, anti-oppressive, anti-colonial and strengths-based approach.
