Life can be uncertain and overwhelming at times. We sometimes feel struck in the journey of our life, but it is fine to feel angry, hurt and sad. My approach is client- centered and strength based. I can assist you to accept yourself for who you are and focus on your strengths. As clients are the best navigators of their own lives, I assist my clients to take best decisions of their lives. I am hoping that we will work together as a team.
You have knowledge and expertise about your own life, and I have knowledge and expertise about the therapeutic process. I expect you to be actively involved in the process as you work towards your goal.
I was born in India and immigration to Canada has shaped my life and has informed my practice of therapy. I enjoy working with newcomers and those looking to work with a therapist with a first-hand experience of immigration and living as a racialized person.
As Rumi quotes, “where there is pain, the cure will come”. I firmly believe that acceptance & a strengths-based approach can help the clients identify their hidden strengths which they forget amidst their depression, anxiety & other negative experiences. I am also a believer of Cognitive-behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing & trauma-informed practices.
