Hello you... I'm happy that you've stumbled upon my blog!
I'm Kayla, I am a Licensed Counselling Therapist, Clinical Traumatologist, and a Yorkville University Alumni.
I have been practicing Counselling Therapy in private practice for more than 9 years. I specialize in trauma (personal and occupational),Racial Trauma, and nutritional psychology. I also have 14 years of work, within community development; focusing on housing, food security, and mental health. My knowledge of counselling therapy and human behaviour evolves as I continue to question, to explore, and to embody what it means to thrive as human beings and the psychology behind it.
I believe we all have the potential to live mindful and resilient lives.
I hope you find these posts helpful, to the least interesting!
As I (Kayla Breelove Carter) reflect on my own ancestors journey to this land, territories of indigenous peoples, as my ancestor's arrived to this land by force of enslavement, I walk humbly on the lands that is traditionally Mi'kma'ki |Wabanaki. The lands that are now called New Brunswick & Nova Scotia, is still home to Indigenous people of Mi'kma'ki |Wabanaki and others from across Turtle Island.
Living on this territory makes all people in New Brunswick & Nova Scotia treaty peoples, including those who come as settlers, or immigrants of this generation or earlier generations, including those, like my ancestors, involuntarily as a result of the Slave Trade. As my people before me, I continue to contribute in the efforts of allyship and the dismantling of racism within our communities, while acknowledging my privilege of being biracial, and mourning the historical trauma’s that continue to perpetuate in our present society, within systemic practices.
