My Approach to Helping

As a dedicated and compassionate Registered Psychotherapist, I believe that mental health must recognize the uniqueness of an individual. This is influenced by my own unique experience as a first-generation Indo-Canadian. Within the psychotherapeutic environment, my key values include respecting and empowering clients, while creating a safe, collaborative approach. You are the storyteller of your life, and my role is to further support you while you write, edit, and enhance the pages.
My clients have shared that I provide a genuine and non-judgmental presence and therapeutic atmosphere while they explore their thoughts and emotions, gain insight into their behaviours, and develop effective steps to enhance their well-being. You can also expect a therapeutic setting that is professional, yet relaxed, and catered to the kind of structure which will help you thrive in sessions.
My professional experience includes working with a wide range of therapeutic issues, such as depression, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, grief, self-esteem, cultural-specific issues, LGBTQIA+ specific issues, life transitions, interpersonal issues, and more. My overall approach is integrative and varies depending on what would be the most beneficial for the client.
Thank you for beginning your journey towards healing and self-care, it is not an easy start and I hope you see how strong you are. If you are looking for a compassionate and experienced therapist to guide you through life's challenges, I invite you to reach out! I look forward to the opportunity of working together, as well as support you on your path to personal growth and well-being.

My Role as a Therapist

I find that through collaboration, we can tailor and create a psychotherapeutic process that can be beneficial for you and result in more long-term influences, while also giving you a feeling of control and strength in your own narrative. I am very mindful of LGBTQIA+ issues, issues affecting marginalized groups, gender-based issues, and cultural issues. To me, being a psychotherapist means being a professional that can help support others on their journey, while giving my clients the space explore their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. I find your comfort and safety to be the utmost priority, while understanding that the first steps to therapy can be challenging.
