  • Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist

Life is a stream of happy and unhappy experiences, but life with its burdens is a treasure. How do we get by during dark times? We have strengths, talents, and creative abilities to face life, shape our life and destiny, and make our happiness because no matter what we were in the past, we are greater today, although it may be hard for us to feel that way during dark times.

I am a registered social worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW).

My social work journey started over 20 years ago when I was in Nigeria working as a medical social welfare team member in a teaching hospital. I immigrated to Canada and continued to pursue my social work career. I have experience providing crisis intervention counselling, working with clients struggling with suicidal ideation and self-harm behaviour, and clients diagnosed with mental health and developmental disorders such as anxiety, depression, BPD, autism, FASD, etc. I also have years of experience working as a child protection worker.

In my work with clients, I apply skills gained from evidence-based treatment approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Foc
used Brief Therapy (SFBT).

Working with diverse populations, I employ trauma-informed and positive engagement strategies to assess my client’s strengths and needs. I also collaborate with clients to develop treatment goals specifically tailored to each individual’s needs and wants.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, or lonely, or do you just want to talk with someone?
I am here to listen. Do you want to change your viewpoint, overcome difficulties, conquer your fears, and work beyond symptoms to solutions? Then I may be a good fit for you. I love supporting people and bringing out the best in them.

On a personal note, I’d like to share some information about myself regarding activities I thoroughly enjoy when I have spare time. I love playing the keyboard, writing songs and singing, and I enjoy making presentations, and serving as Master of Ceremonies (MC).
I enjoy, value, and practice mindfulness and spiritual exercises to develop my self-awareness further and unfold spiritually. Now you know a little bit about me. I’d be glad to know more about you and assist you.
