A Space Where Emotion Empowers

About Me

Welcome! My name is Monique Achong.

I am humbled that you are here. I am a Trinidadian born, Registered Social Worker, practicing Psychotherapy virtually across Ontario and Nova Scotia. I am dedicated to working with BIPOC populations whose lives have been impacted by relationship distress, people pleasing, self-esteem struggles, anxiety, shame, and anger. Research shows that emotions liberate and act as a compass to life. Your lived experience may have taught you to disown or mistrust them but together, we can transform and heal. Let’s get curious together about what empowers and enlightens you in your relationship with yourself and special others in your life. Let’s help you find solace in your emotional health and wellbeing.
