About

Life experiences can be overwhelming, and you may sometimes feel lost. Deciding to try therapy is a step toward seeking a new perspective to understand the world, people, and yourself. As a queer person of colour, my therapy approach operate from trauma and culturally informed, intersectional, anti-racist, feminist, and 2SLQBTQ+-affirming values. I am passionate about supporting people living with challenges associated with identity, settlement, family issues, mental health and stress management with trauma-informed therapy. This is a safe and empowering space for you to build hope in your life.
I use an integrative approach guided by narrative, attachment and systems theories. My approach is trauma-informed, strengths-focused, person-centred, and racially/culturally sensitive. 10 FREE sessions for refugee claimants with IFH and 8 Free sessions for BIPOC Females and non-binary folks with low income.
As a sessional Instructor at the Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto and University of Calgary, I teach, research and practice around identities and identity-based trauma, as well as cross-cultural interrelationship. I would like to meet and learn about you as a holistic person. I have some sliding scale spots available according to your needs.
