Ola M. Kuforiji (Psychotherapy Intern)

Biography

As a therapist, Ola employs a person-centred approach to all his work. True empathy, cultural sensitivity, and unconditional positive regard for clients are chief among his values. Pulling from traditions such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, Ola also helps clients deconstruct their issues into more manageable components (i.e., thoughts, feelings, and behaviours) in order to help them reframe both their issues and responses in a more adaptive fashion.

 

After a decade-long career in clinical research at top Canadian hospitals, Ola chose to develop the skills he gained in more treatment-oriented settings. His work with fathers who were at-risk for or had committed domestic violence prompted him to pursue graduate studies at Yorkville University. 

 

Ola has a distinct appreciation of the relationship between theory, research, and professional practice and thus the need for varied approaches to treatment. He is open-minded, adaptive, and flexible in the therapy room. Leading with genuine curiosity, Ola creates a safe space that is anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, and ultimately non-judgmental where the client is the expert on their own life.
