Nilame “Nila” Mensah

Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist (MSW, RSW)

Nila is a Registered Social Worker, with 8 years of experience providing counseling to individuals, couples, and families. Her counseling style is compassionate and person-centered. She believes that one of the most important indicators of success in therapy is building a strong and trusting relationship with your therapist.

Nila’s goal is to provide you with a safe space and guidance to explore how your patterns of behaviour, past trauma, and experiences have formed the person you are today. You will work together to explore past patterns, build healthy coping strategies, and strengthen resilience.

Her approach is a combination of multiple approaches, depending on your needs, and often includes collaborative problem solving, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), and solution-focused techniques.
