I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C.) with the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association, a Registered Kinesiologist with the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario (CKO), and holds the status of Provisional Psychologist in Alberta. I hold a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Walden University, Specialized Honours Degree (Maj/Min) in Kinesiology and Health Science/ Psychology from York University, and Advanced Certificate in Couple and Family Therapy from the University of Guelph.
I am currently pursuing my Doctor of Psychology degree in clinical psychology with California Southern University, with the goal of licensure as a psychologist in 2023. I have hosted webinars and provided mental health commentary for Global News, Uber Canada, and Interac Canada.
I am also a Director with the Black Health Alliance, and a former Director with the Ontario Kinesiology Association. In addition to training in the therapeutic approaches listed below, I am an EMDR Certified Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Certification (Level II – Complex Trauma), with a particular focus on dissociative disorders, and certificate perinatal mental health.
For the past few years, I’ve had the pleasure of helping individuals improve their mental health through goal-focused collaboration. You may be going through a time in your life right now which is leaving you feeling unhappy, or stuck in a cycle you don’t know how to break. As a Psychotherapist, I endeavor to use my skills, and the knowledge I continue to acquire to help people lead more satisfying lives. I use a client-centered and judgment-free approach and work with you to develop new skills to meet your therapeutic goals.
Each client journey is unique and so too are the factors that makes each person who they are. As the daughter of Jamaican and Trinidadian immigrants, I value the importance of culturally-integrative care in the therapeutic experience. I take an anti-oppressive and culturally-sensitive approach to my work, exploring these and the many intersections that each client holds along with the work that we do together. The richness of our different backgrounds should never be a barrier to receiving a satisfying therapy experience.
