Kunle is passionate about helping you gain clarity in your life. He’ll give you tools to grow personally, develop stronger connections, and find a deep sense of meaning in your life.
Kunle also supports people who are navigating cross-cultural challenges and may struggle with self-identity, self-worth, and family dynamics. He can help you examine your cultural identity and how it impacts your day-to-day life. Originally from Nigeria, Kunle is an immigrant himself and he understands what it is like to reconcile different cultural identities.
Kunle recognizes that it takes courage to reach out for mental health support, especially for immigrant and BIPOC groups (groups to which he belongs). He strives to create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can be vulnerable.
Kunle conducts sessions in a calm, non-judgmental, and collaborative environment. He believes you are the expert of your own life and will support you to navigate your needs and desires. Kunle approaches sessions using cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing, an anti-oppressive lens, as well as strength-based, solution-focused, and trauma-focused therapies.
Kunle is a native of the Yoruba tribe and can provide services to clients in Yoruba.
