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, I approach therapy with a desire to apply my awareness and understanding of BIPOC experiences within anti-oppressive, compassionate, and culturally-informed care.

I work with clients who feel stuck or unsure about the path they’re on in life as well as those who may find it difficult as they navigate the challenges of day-to-day stress, burnout, periods of adjustment following big life changes, relationships, painful past experiences or unique racialized experiences. I also work with couples who may be seeking support as they prepare for or are already making their way through significant changes in their relationship as well as couples who may feel uncertain about their future together.

My priority is for you to feel respected and understood in an atmosphere of trust and nonjudgment as we explore whatever brings you to therapy. Our sessions can then become a place where you build insight, clarity, and greater capacity while we collaborate on how to support fulfilling and sustainable changes in your life.

For our work together to be holistic, I offer talk therapy approaches to address habits and ways of thinking that may no longer feel as helpful as you would like, and I offer evidence-based somatic therapy approaches to support the natural processes within your body for processing and resolving symptoms of emotional distress, anxiety, stress, chronic stress, and burnout. I also incorporate practices informed by my background and training in yoga and meditation. Ultimately, through a strengths-based, identity-affirming and 2SLGBTQI+ affirming approach to therapy, I tailor what I do in our sessions to support your unique journey towards a greater sense of balance, healing, wellness, and continued growth.

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