Toronto, Ontario therapist: Nakasha Ogbonna, registered social worker

Nakasha Ogbonna

Registered Social Worker, RSW
I am a dual province (Ontario & Alberta) registered social worker specializing in mental health. Before entering private practice, I served as the University of Calgary’s Mental Health Consultant where I was the primary on-campus therapeutic support for staff, faculty, and post doctorates. I now work in private practice supporting individuals, couples, families, and groups. I also have specialized training and experience working with first responders and their families in dealing with operational stress injuries. My breadth of experience includes work with patients accessing community public health as well as school aged youth in primary and secondary school divisions. Life is hard enough. Therapy does not need to be overly stressful. For this reason I take a relaxed approach, infusing light humour while discussing your deepest thoughts and concerns. I aim for your time with me to be one of the best parts of your week, because it is where you know you can be your authentic self with a warm and non-judgemental supporter. Therapy can work for anyone when there is a strong relationship between the client and therapist. For this reason I prioritize building a strong therapeutic partnership with my clients that is grounded on transparency, empathy, and unconditional support. Think of me as a GPS for your mind. You pick the destination and I’ll show you how to get there.

North York, Ontario therapist: Audrey Palmer-Genesis Clinical Services, registered psychotherapist

Audrey Palmer-Genesis Clinical Services

Registered Psychotherapist, CYW,MTS,RP
I'm a therapist in Toronto and I believe that each individual is the expert in themselves, and as such, they enter into a relationship with the therapist to move forward toward wholeness. I also believe that most of what we experience is temporary as we look at the extent of our lives. I caution individuals not to make permanent decisions based on a temporary situation. Therapy is the process of understanding what has derailed the individual and actively move them back to a place of equilibrium. After 25 years of practice, I bring knowledge, insight and numerous skills to my work with clients. Whether I'm treating trauma, or helping clients apply the insights offered by Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, or utilizing the concepts of resilience to their experience, I am a fairly creative and utilize the client's creativity to help move them forward. By asking questions, offering perspectives, and suggesting ways to engage in the process beyond the confines of the session itself. My central role is to establish a caring and therapeutic relationship with each and every client. Contact me for a fifteen min. phone session.
