Description

I am a Bilingual Registered Psychotherapist and the Founder of Therapy with Empathy, Inc.; a psychotherapy private practice aimed at helping individuals improve their psychological well-being and maintain healthy relationships through a culturally competent lens.

My goal is to help you understand and manage emotions that could be impacting your relationship with others, as past experiences and concerns about the future can make it challenging to live a thriving life. When you leave our session, I want you to feel empowered, knowing that you have the tools to deal with negative emotions.

Therapy with Empathy

Summary

If you’re experiencing challenges in relationships with those around you, you may start to worry whether your needs will ever be met. You deserve to feel seen, heard, and understood. With the tools I offer through individual psychotherapy, I guide you through creating a sense of belonging, feeling empowered, and being fulfilled in your relationships. As a black therapist in Ottawa, I offer sessions in either English or French to help promote growth and overall well-being, through a culturally sensitive lens.
