Pronounced: Toh-ko Moi-yo
Hello, I am an uninvited immigrant settler from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe who has been living in so called ‘Canada’, for over 30 years. 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.
The foundation of my practice is centred around Anti-Oppressive Practice and Intersectionality. That means, that as a Black Bi-Racial, Queer, gender fluid person (she/they), that navigates my own issues with mental health and lives with chronic pain, I practice entirely through a world view that understands the value of empowerment and radical self-love for those of us navigating current and historical oppressive societal systems.
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. That is done through transparency, collaboration and building trust. 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 of self exploration 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.
