About Melicia

I am a registered psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, a member with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, and also an internationally certified Triple P Parenting Practitioner, through Queensland University, Australia and Triple P Parenting Canada Inc. I have a Master of Arts Degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Law and Political Science from Northern Caribbean University and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Autism and Behavioural Science from George Brown College.

I have over ten years of experience working with diverse populations, specifically within the social services profession. Through clinical skills and knowledge, I aim to make a positive difference in the lives of my clients. With a combination of evidence-based therapeutic knowledge, and extensive educational and clinical experiences, I am passionate and competent to support clients in having successful outcomes and be effective advocates for their lives.

Over the years, I have delivered interventions and intensive support and treatment to children, adolescents, couples and families in a non-judgemental and client-focused manner that led to success and empowerment. My hope is that clients enter service with me knowing that they are in a safe space that has been specifically created with them in mind.

As an immigrant and a Caribbean native, I have lived in the melting pot of people, cultures and languages, and have always been passionate about cultures. Which is why I strongly believe in cultural diversity and inclusion; this is reflected in my work which is often underlined by cultural-sensitivity and an anti-racism/anti-oppressive stance.

Ultimately, I became a therapist to ensure that clients feel safe, seen, heard, validated and accepted. Change is challenging, and I am here to help.
