My Approach

I adopt an integrative, multi-disciplinary, person-centered approach with an anti-oppressive, culturally-sensitive and trauma-informed lens. I pull from various therapeutic modalities to tailor treatment plans that address the unique needs and challenges of each individual client.


Some of the modalities I frequently use include:

  • cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

  • dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT)

  • emotion-focused therapy (EFT)

  • solution-focused therapy (SFT)

  • psychodynamic therapy 

  • family systems therapy 

  • narrative therapy, and 

  • acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)


 I also understand the unique needs of BIPOC individuals and support BIPOC clients towards racial healing.

I have had the privilege of working with some amazing organizations, such as:  

Black Mental Health Canada (BMHC)

Canadian Black Nurses Alliance (CBNA)

University of Toronto – Student Union

Glendon College, York University – Black Student Union

Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists (OSRP)

Ministry of Children, Community & Social Services, Province of Ontario

Ministry of Citizens’ Services, Government of British Columbia

City of Peterborough, Community Race Relations Committee

Lumenus Community Services
