Ifeoma Rita Uzorchukwuamaka

Psychotherapy/Counselling Intern
Do you spend your time feeling isolated, stuck, overwhelmed and misunderstood by the people around you? Are you struggling to cope with a loss or multiple losses? Are you currently struggling with anxiety, depression, or grieving the loss of self? I work holistically to empower and collaboratively build on your resiliency. If this is an area you struggle with, please reach out to me today.

I am Ifeoma Rita Uzorchukwuamaka, an intern counsellor/therapist completing my master's in counselling psychology at Yorkville University. I am also a registered social worker with over seven years of experience. I provide affordable counselling sessions to individuals experiencing grief, depression, anxiety, or struggling with relationship issues. I work collaboratively with individuals to meet their needs and have worked with people from diverse backgrounds or gender orientations. I work remotely with clients in Ontario and Alberta.  

I work from a holistic approach focusing on cognitive-behavioural (CBT), solution-focused, strength-based approach and emotional-focus therapy. If you have any questions, please contact me by email at Ifeoma.Uzorchukwuamaka@yorkvilleu.ca

Thank you, and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Desk
In working with you, I will follow a culturally sensitive approach. I understand the subtle
nuances of relationships and family issues in a collectivistic culture. Being an immigrant myself, I am acquainted with the struggles and challenges of acculturation.  I offer a safe space where you can be heard and understood. I understand that seeking therapy may be difficult and quite intimidating at first. I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to take that step in order to begin to understand your own story and start the healing process and journey.

My session fees for individual therapy range on a sliding scale from $50 to $80, depending on your income limitations. We will never ask you about your personal finances; just let us know what you can afford within that fee range. Pro-bono options are also available. I do not offer couples counselling services at this time. See our Affordable Counselling Page.


I look forward to working together with you in creating a space that supports you throughout your healing journey.
