Quick bio: I am mixed race ( Black ), transgender, queer and poly.
Therapy can sometimes feel difficult. It can be painful to look at how other people or institutions have affected our lives, or at how we have affected other people's. It is no mystery that relationships are complicated, but we can try to talk about them. We can start the process of unwinding your life, so that we can really look at it. Focusing on your needs is not selfish, despite the messaging we receive. Your life is valuable and it absolutely matters.

If you are struggling with insecurity, feel misunderstood, and find yourself feeling not respected by loved ones, friends, and co-workers, then read everything below. In my professional experience, you are seeking therapy for two reasons: To move further away from pain or bring yourself closer to pleasure. You likely have been told to hide your anxiety, not openly share your stress, toughen up and let things that bother you slide. The good news is you don't have to face these issues alone. Imagine boldly facing any challenges that come your way through life coaching, counselling, or therapy.

With an anti-oppressive framework, and I am passionate to work with Black , Indigenous and Women of Colour (BIWOC) and Gender-expansive folks.
As a Sudanese refugee, trauma was woven into my life story. It took me a long time to believe that I was strong enough to handle the weight of my own emotions, but I found a path that helped me to feel at home in my own body. Healing cam be messy and painful at times, but if we choose to ride it and extend ourselves grace, then profound and radical change can happen. With mindfulness and a somatic approach, we can start to discover that everything we ever needed is already within us.

It's truly a pleasure and privilege for me to do the work that I do, providing care to Black communities! Therapy is an avenue for healing that is deeply rewarding but won't always be light, fun, or easy.
It's undeniable that life is hard. It's filled with difficulties that we don't always know how to navigate and that make us feel stuck. Another undeniable truth is that there's help + support along the way, and it's possible to feel unstuck. I view therapy as a journey helping you find healing and solutions to your struggles within yourself. My mission as a therapist is to help you navigate life's challenges and uncertainties with more understanding, acceptance, flexibility, and resilience—whether you're dealing with family, romantic relationships, work/school, friendships, or your relationship with yourself.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Toronto are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Toronto then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Toronto, or Child Psychologists in Toronto.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Toronto psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.
