I am a Registered Psychotherapist with a Master’s in Counselling Psychology and extensive work experience in the field of Mental Health and Education. I have worked with both children and adults with Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Autism, Depression, and Anxiety. I have often found the best way to work with a client is through a collaborative and strength based approach to help them identify their own strengths and draw from best practices to create a unique combination of solutions to help them be independent, self reliant, and find themselves maximizing their potential.
Through therapy with me, I hope that my clients get a better understanding of their strengths, gain deeper insight into their personal experience, learn to advocate and improve their relationships and work performance. As someone who has worked in collectivist and individualist countries (India and Canada), with people stemming from a variety of financial backgrounds in a range of settings, I understand first hand the impact of systemic discrimination, socio-economic hurdles, and lack of awareness on mental health services.
I am perceptive and recognize that there are tonnes of invisible barriers that exists, even though they do not seem like it to people who don’t experience it first-hand. This is something I feel strongly about and a huge part of my work is helping people learn and communicate those barriers to better advocate for themselves and find success in whatever aspect of their lives they wish to. If you have anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, ADHD, twice exceptional, or are an immigrant or a caregiver, I will work with you to help gain skills that will help you manage and improve your mental health, maximize your potential at work, advocate for yourself, and improve relationships with your loved ones.
I offer a free 30 minute consultation to help you find out if I am a good fit as a therapist. If you are interested in psychotherapy and/or consultation, click here to book an appointment.
