Hello My name is Victor and I am a part of the diverse team at Kahle Therapy + Consulting Services. I am an experienced Social Worker + Psychotherapist with a client-centred approach to treating and supporting individuals with psychological, social, physical, emotional, and educational needs.
Born and raised on the Caribbean island of Jamaica, I have a unique cultural lens that many mainstream therapists cannot provide. I work effectively with diverse populations + I am dedicated to the betterment of my community through the education, training and treatment of youth, adults, + vulnerable individuals. In my work, and life, I committed to the principles of Anti-Racism, Anti-Sexism, and the dismantling of all forms of oppression through advocacy work. As the foundation of my practice, I commit to working collaboratively with my clients to build a safe + effective therapeutic relationship. I am a believer that clients are the experts in their own lives, and as such I work to provide support + guidance through the therapeutic process. I can help you to explore your emotions by using a collaborative, client-centred + culturally responsive approach. I also help to ease the anxiety and/or resistance of those excluded from, or judged within, traditional mental health systems.
I use a variety of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Eclectic + Solution Focused Brief (SFBT).
I am a Registered MSW with the OCSWSSW, and have Bachelor’s degrees in Human Rights + Equity, Guidance + Counselling, and an international diploma in Secondary Education.
Victor believes that seeking support is the first step towards finding solutions, and he would be honoured to help you on your journey!
