Hello everyone! I am Rafeya and my journey in the field of psychotherapy began with a deep-rooted passion for understanding the human mind and the intricacies of human behavior. Central to my therapeutic approach is creating a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals can explore their thoughts and feelings. I believe that a strong therapeutic alliance is essential for the healing process, and I work collaboratively with my clients to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to their unique needs and goals.

Talking things through and accountability have not been enough to sustain satisfaction in your life?   Let’s try something different! In our sessions everything deserves a place; emotions, thoughts, images, dreams, desires, impulses, stories, and sensations, they all belong. And all need to be acknowledged in order to generate real movements and shifts in our lives. Movements can happen externally as a physical release, internally as a new image of ourselves, or at a soul level shifting our dynamics with others, and the way we live.

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

“Into this world we’re thrown…” (Morrison, 1971) are more than groovy lyrics, they seem to reflect how we’ve all just kind of landed somewhere on a map; amongst peoples and situations we’re expected to navigate; during this exact moment in history…I also feel as though we’re each doing our best to adapt and find peace despite all this. Leaning on curiosity, compassion, and humour, I’ve had the privilege of being a second set of eyes for individuals from all walks of life, and stages psychological development, whom have been faced with a wide array of obstacles they just needed a fellow traveller to help work things through with.

Life can feel too intense, sometimes. We all deserve support. Psychotherapy can be a powerful way to work through those moments in life when we can’t see a way forward- when we feel stuck, alone, disconnected, overwhelmed, and small. I specialize in helping with feelings of low self-worth, isolation, and shame, and support folks in regaining a sense of safety and presence in their bodies, choices, and relationships. Whatever you may be struggling with, you don’t have to do it alone. In the context of a strong therapeutic relationship, we can make sense of your experience and help you work through it, together.

Our life's experiences, along with our most significant relationships, inform how we feel about ourselves and others, as well as, how we relate with the world at large. The process of psychotherapy helps us to better understand how and why we relate in the ways that we do, and in so doing we build greater self-awareness which supports our ability to see new possibilities and make more enlivened choices.

I am an unapologetic autistic, disabled social worker and trauma therapist. I work collaboratively with autistic/neurodivergent individuals, families, professionals and leaders, providing non-violent, disability/racial/gender justice based healing support. Healing supports are attuned, holistic, depathologizing and decolonizing; reconnecting with self, community and culture. Our neurotypes do not need “treatment”, and our problems are not the result of “social skills deficits”. Deep healing and liberation come through challenging neurodisablist and sanist systems and finding pathways back to our embodied wisdom, power and JOY!
