Are you tired of hearing statements such as, "Are you sure it's racism?", or "You are well spoken (for a racialized person)". Although the intention is not always to be hurtful, these microaggressions are insensitive, problematic, and inherently racist. Such statements contribute to the breakdown of ones mental health and well-being on a daily basis.
I want to help! Navigating mental health challenges is not easy. However, being in a safe space with support and open communication is a step in the right direction.
I provide online counselling which will help reach those who are not in the immediate area. I know most of us are used to traditional in-person sessions, however, online counselling has been found to be just as effective.
"It always seems impossible until it's done."
The decision to attend therapy can be challenging, especially if you are from a culture/community that does not believe in mental illness. Maybe you feel shame, or perhaps, you feel like you are bringing shame to your family and/or community. Although society is moving in the right direction, shame and stigma is prevalent among many people. It is important to know that you are not alone. We are all unique and we all come from various backgrounds, there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to therapy. It is important to know that you are the expert in your life. I am here to provide a space that will allow guidance, support, awareness, reflection, and treatment. Your journey begins here.
