About Afi

Life Can Feel Unpredictable 

We try to live lives that make sense and matter to us, but life changes can make you question who you are, what life is about, your expectations for the future, and your relationships.

Life Is Messy 

 Our experiences are messy, feelings are messy, and we all do what we can to make it through.

Maybe you are feeling stuck in a rut, or are overwhelmed after simple interactions, and you can’t understand why. 

Maybe you step away from work or school to cry most days, and struggle to understand or express your emotions.  

Imagine for a moment what life could be like if you weren’t just making it through. What life could look like if you were able to feel those feelings and no longer felt controlled by depression, body image, substance abuse, or anxiety.

That life is possible! Whatever your current struggle is, I am confident we can partner together to make the changes you are looking for. 

Support Can Make a Difference 

I use a compassionate, yet direct approach to help clients gain insight into patterns that have them feeling “stuck”. I use evidence-based approaches, such as CBT & Solution Focused Therapy, so you can make the long-term behavior changes that will put you on the right track.

 

My clients have struggled with a range of issues, many of which have their roots in anxiety, depression, or relationship stress. I believe that getting to know how you got here is key to knowing who you are and where you should go. 
  

My name is Afi Hounnou, ACSW, and I’m glad you’re here. Providing support to teens, their parents, as well as individuals working to heal trauma is what I love to do. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work and have worked in this field with individuals and families for several years. 

As a bilingual therapist, services may be provided in French and/or English. My commitment as a therapist is to assist clients in creating an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual balance in their lives.

More About Me

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and my community as a youth leader. I also enjoy playing the piano and traveling!

I have family around the world and I enjoy visiting, spending time, cooking and laughing. It’s good for the soul!  

While I see clients of all types, here are some of my specialties: 

  • People in their 20’s
  • Teen Therapy
  • Greif and Loss
  • Depression and Anxiety

 

  • Divorce & Family Systems
  • Parenting & Coparenting
  • Trauma (i.e. Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault & Child Abuse)
  • Spirituality

 

I believe a strong support through one’s family, community, and trust are important factors for anyone to succeed. My mission is to meet each individual where they are at and help them identify their values, supports and work through issues of life in order to be empowered, persevere and thrive in life.

Create the life you want. 

Maybe this is your first time seeking therapy – or maybe you’re looking to return after a break, or a negative experience. No matter what brings you in, there is hope. Together, we can create lasting and meaningful changes.
