“Healing begins where the wound was made.” -Alice Walker
As a Sudanese refugee, trauma was woven into my life story. It took me a long time to believe that I was strong enough to handle the weight of my own emotions, but I found a path that helped me to feel at home in my own body. Healing cam be messy and painful at times, but if we choose to ride it and extend ourselves grace, then profound and radical change can happen. With mindfulness and a somatic approach, we can start to discover that everything we ever needed is already within us.
With me, you will find a non-judgmental brave space for you to reclaim your self. I trust in the wisdom of my body, courage and inner wisdom – and in YOURS.
I am an experienced practitioner and teacher of yoga and mindfulness, which informs my work with trauma-specific and somatic therapies. I approach my practice through an anti-oppressive framework, and I am passionate to work with Black, Indigenous and Women of Colour (BIWOC) and Gender-expansive folks.”What I find to be most important is creating harmony, balance, and joy in any practice. With a degree in psychology and graduate diploma in social service work, I am currently in a multi-year program at the Toronto Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling Education, completing the requirements for registration as a Psychotherapist.
