Summary

Rita Onwodi MSW, 
Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist

I believe everyone has the potential for growth and the ability to enhance meaning in their lives. Grounded in client-centred principles and from a culturally responsive foundation, I use an integrated therapeutic approach,  techniques from emotionally focused therapy (EFT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and Brief Psychodynamic psychotherapy. I also emphasize mindfulness concepts and non-judgment in my client work. I have a warm and understanding therapeutic style. I encourage growth through reflection and collaboration.
