Rania Ibrahim Ambrad
Registered Social Worker & Psychotherapist
Hello! I am a queer, neurodivergent, Palestinian-Egyptian and Filipino cis woman and Registered Social Worker offering compassionate, trauma-informed, affirming, anti-oppressive, culturally responsive and liberation-oriented therapy services.
My multiple intersecting identities and lived experiences influence my passion for providing counselling services to Autistic and ADHD adults (18+) who were late-diagnosed or are just beginning their neurodiversity journey. I am especially interested in working with Black, Indigenous, racialized and 2SLGBTQ+ individuals.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Social Development Studies from the University of Waterloo and my Master of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University. I started my career in community-based mental health services with children and youth ages 6-12. I was involved in group facilitation, program coordination, and respite support in the Halton Region and Mississauga. I later shifted into residential services, offering crisis intervention, counselling and support coordination services to youth aged 16-24 experiencing homelessness in Toronto. Today, I work with university students in individual counselling and group programming settings in addition to the fabulous people who find me here at Scattergram.
Being neurodivergent and late-diagnosed myself, I’m here to provide the guidance and support you need from a place of genuine empathy and relatability. If you have any questions or feel ready to take the next step, I invite you to book a 15-minute free consultation for us to connect, discuss your goals, and see if we’re a good fit.
Ages: I work with individual 18 years of age and older.

Book a Free Consultation
Before connecting you with Rania, we would like to invite you for a free twenty-minute consultation with our Client Care Coordinator.
The consultation is not a therapy session. It’s a chance for you to ask any questions you may have about us and for us to make sure you are in the best possible hands.
Therapy is all about the right fit. We are sure you’ll find the right fit with us, where neurodivergence is normal.
'This group didn't suck!' was the best feedback I received at the conclusion of Scattergram’s A.C.C.E.P.T. Group for Neurodivergent Adults >30...
This article is written by a self-diagnosed Autistic female-presenting person in the form of a letter to the psychiatrist who found her too ‘high-functioning’ to be on the Autism spectrum, and is the first in our series of neurodivergent voices.
There is a term for what happens when service providers unintentionally do harm to the people seeking their help: Sanctuary Trauma.
