I am the Co-Founder + Clinical Director of Kahle Therapy & Consulting Services; a 3B (Black Owned, Black Focused & Black Serving) agency. My goal, through Kahle, is to address the impact of systemic & social injustice on Black + marginalized people.
Kahle Therapy + Consulting Services was born after years of working within mainstream mental health services. I recognized the disparity in treatment for Black clients and staff; as well as the disturbing irony that involvement with mainstream mental health systems often exacerbated the mental health concerns of Black people.
I aim to provide cultural responsive and empathetic services to those disproportionately facing barriers to mental health services due to race, gender and/or culture.
I am a Registered Social Worker (OCSWSSW) & Psychotherapist with 20 years of experience.
I attended the University of Windsor (Psychology + Law) & York University (Social Work + Anti-Racist Research & Practice) and my professional experience spans numerous sectors including mental health, child welfare, education, youth justice, policy, and community engagement.
As a first generation Canadian-Jamaican + former Miss West Indies International I am deeply connected to the Black + Caribbean community. I am the mother of a teenage daughter. I love to travel, create (painting, writing, interior design and photography) and I believe that the quest to know & understand our authentic selves is one which will reap the greatest rewards.
My identity + lived experience has enabled me to offer effective, culturally responsive, and asset focused psycho-therapeutic services.
I work from a Anti-Oppressive/Anti-Black Racism framework & utilize an inter-sectional approach that honours the complexities of diverse + marginalized individuals.My focus is to provide a safe space for individuals to develop their authentic selves, heal, refocus, and gain coping skills that will improve their lives. I hold space for clients to safely unpack their experiences and offer holistic & validating treatment. My years of practicing various clinical modalities will allow me, to assist you, on your wellness journey.
