Her vast work experiences include working with clients from diverse ethnic and multicultural groups; including those from high-risk; marginalized and vulnerable populations.

Her approach to therapy is strength-based, trauma-informed, and client-centered. She values her clients’ lived experiences, creating a psychologically safe space for clients to explore concerns and goals. Zetilda supports clients struggling with the stress associated with everyday living and/or from past experiences and to move from distress, crisis, or burnout towards goals of balance, success, and increased confidence.

She is also a BIPOC therapist, providing anti-oppressive culturally sensitive therapy for people of colour who want to either simply connect with a therapist of colour (even if their concerns are not related to discrimination) or want to specifically address the daily or historical impact of discrimination and heal from racial trauma.
