About Me

Krishna Vora (she/her)

Hi, my name is Krishna Vora. I was born and raised in Mumbai, India where I trained and practiced as a Psychologist before moving to Canada in 2016. I identify as a South Asian heterosexual cisgender immigrant woman, who was raised in a household that practiced Hinduism and Jainism while experiencing a lot of freedom in my religious choices. I am fluent in my mother tongue Gujarati (yep, I can read and write it too!), Hindi and English.

I have been fortunate to be able to work in many professional capacities such as a Psychologist and a Special Educator in India, a Psychotherapist and a Middle School Teacher in Toronto, among many other assorted jobs that taught me valuable life skills and shaped my worldview. In my private practice, I work with adults who struggle with a variety of mental health issues such depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues, self esteem, struggles with self advocacy, feeling stuck, etc. Additionally, I work with neurodivergent adults who are Autistic, ADHDers, Learning Disabled and Twice Exceptional to identify their strengths and build skills while they navigate challenges in their personal lives and in their workplaces.

As someone who has worked in collectivist and individualist cultures, I find it extremely rewarding to work with BIPOCs, especially South Asian clients who are immigrants, and first or second gen immigrants to help bridge generational and cultural gaps within their families, understand their experience in the larger context of their intersectionality. I have extensive experience working with people stemming from a variety of financial backgrounds in a range of settings, and therefore, understand the first hand the impact of systemic discrimination, socio-economic hurdles, and lack of awareness on mental health services. 

The last few years have been a significant period of growth for me as I learned to decolonize mental health, learn about the LGBTQ+ community to providing affirming care and unpack my own internalized ableism (something I intend to continue working on throughout my life).I feel strongly about each individual receiving mental health care that is honest, transparent, tailored to their unique needs which helps them get more awareness of their strengths, gain deeper insight into their personal experience, learn to advocate for themselves and improve their relationships and work performance.

I offer a free 30 minute no-obligation consultation to help you find out if am a good fit as a therapist. If you are interested in psychotherapy and/or consultation, click here to book an appointment.
