Pronounced: Toh-ko Moi-yo
The foundation of my practice is centred around Anti-Oppressive frameworks, Critical Race Theory and and Intersectional Feminist Theory. That means, that as a Black, Queer, gender fluid person (she/her/they) who manages my own issues with mental health and struggles with chronic pain, I practice entirely through a world view that understands the value of empowerment and existence as resistance for those of us navigating current oppressive societal systems.
I have a masters degree in Counselling Psychology and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the B.C Association of Clinical Counsellors. I offer individual, relationship, and group counselling therapy to all folks in need, prioritizing my services for Queer Trans Black Indigenous People of Colour (QTBIPOC). I also provide workshops, clinical consultations, teachings and trainings.
A major part of my practice is focused on dismantling power imbalances that inherently come with sitting in a counselling space with a hired professional. You are the brave individual that has taken this step to work on your healing and grow in unimaginable ways, you are the expert of your life, and I would be an honoured co-supporter to walk along this path with you.
I am an uninvited immigrant settler on the unceded Traditional Coast Salish Lands including the Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ), Kwikwetlem (kʷikʷəƛ̓əm), Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) Nations.
