If online counselling does not work for you, try our phone counseling service. Cut out the travel time to and from our therapy office, and attend your appointment in the comfort of your home. Our phone counselling offers the utmost convenience and comfort in counselling.

Welcome to Shades of Therapy Counselling,
Psychotherapy & Coaching!

Psychotherapy and counselling can help individuals gain self-awareness and the personal growth process. Seeking psychotherapy can be an overwhelming task, so I want to use this opportunity to applaud you for taking the first to mental wellness by visiting and reviewing our website.

Every now and then life throws a curve ball at us which could leave a person feeling confused, alone and unenthusiastic to complete daily tasks. Like George Harrison says, “It’s all in the mind”. I genuinely believe that asking for help is a sign of strength, and it means you are aware enough to take care of your mind as you do your body. Shades of Therapy is dedicated to serving, encouraging, and educating the BIPOC community about the benefits of seeking help, where and how to access it.

I am a compassionate and empathetic therapist with experience working with young adults, individuals, and couples on a variety of issues such as addictions, stress, anxiety, depression and trauma amongst others, from diverse backgrounds.
