About me

My philosophy is that counselling does not have to be problem based; it can be resource based. If you are struggling with some difficult issues, I invite you to take part in exploring your emotional attachments, needs and behaviours that are impacting you negatively. If you are simply feeling stuck, curious about your own tendencies, or having difficulty letting go of toxicity in relationships, counselling can be an excellent space to explore, understand, and achieve change.

I am passionate for social justice, and work from an empathic, feminist, and emotional lens to understand human behaviours and desires. I identify as an emotion-focused therapist, and strongly believe that understanding and controlling our emotions can create long-term and sustainable change.

I am a first generation immigrant from India, and identify as Indo-Canadian. My personal experience as an immigrant compliments my knowledge and understanding of life transitions, and acculturation issues newcomers and their children are facing today. I have extensive experience in working with immigrant families and understanding mental health issues from a non-pathological lens. I am skilled in, and highly inquisitive about cultural norms and their impact on our mental well-being.

In our work together we can uncover the impact of ethnic, religious and spiritual factors on your life.
