About Erin

I’m a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and a yoga instructor who is passionate about improving mental health within Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities. I received my Master of Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, and I hold an Honours Degree from the University of Toronto in African Studies, Cultural Anthropology, and Political Science. As someone born in central Africa and raised in both southern and northern Africa before moving to Canada, my interest in healing work is rooted in a desire to apply my awareness and understanding of BIPOC experiences within compassionate and culturally-informed care.

I work with clients who feel stuck or unsure about the path they’re on in their life as well as those who may find it difficult as they navigate the challenges of day-to-day stress, painful past experiences, relationships, big life changes, or unique racialized experiences. I also work with couples who may be facing obstacles in their relationship, are thinking about ending their relationship, or who want to strengthen and deepen an already fulfilling relationship.

In my work, my priority is for you to feel respected and understood in an atmosphere of trust and nonjudgment as we explore your concerns. I also incorporate somatic practices, which are informed by my training in yoga and mindfulness. Through a holistic, anti-oppressive, LGBTI2SQ and gender-affirming approach, I tailor what I do to support your unique journey toward a greater sense of balance, wellness, healing, and continued growth.

Creating meaningful change can be empowering. My hope is that as we work together, you can see and feel the impact of positive and meaningful change in your mental health.
