About me

Hi, I’m Isha and I would be honoured to walk alongside you on your journey of healing – but first let me tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in a small town in Northern B.C. and have resided in the Lower Mainland since 2012. I am the youngest of three siblings, and am a second generation Indo-Canadian. At a young age I recognized the struggles and hardships my parents had as a couple, but also as individuals. I witnessed the pain they each silently endured, and the arguments that arose due to miscommunication. Later in life, I recognized it was not just my parents, but everyone around me in some shape or form was struggling, emotionally, physically, financially or mentally. I naively wanted to support everyone, and glue back the broken pieces. But through my own life journey and inner growth, I’ve discovered the truth that those who want healing will ultimately find it. I feel blessed to see the world through both a Canadian and Indian cultural lens, and my lived experiences of cultural diversity have helped me to appreciate the uniqueness of every person’s story and to accept them for who they truly are.

I have a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. I work with diverse populations and various concerns. I specialize with anxiety and depression– and work closely with trauma, family conflict, life stressors, domestic violence and relationship issues. My personal experiences of feeling stuck and lacking control of life has pushed me to self exploration and deep inner work.  In turn this deep inner work has led me to become passionate about supporting others whom feel stuck or unmotivated. I offer counselling in both English and Punjabi to adults, couples and families.

I, too, have been a client in a counsellor’s office and know that reaching out for support can feel unfamiliar or intimidating. As a client, and also a counsellor – I believe the most important aspect of counselling is the therapeutic relationship. I work from an Adlerian perspective which means I will collaboratively work beside you, in a strength based and goal oriented approach. We will explore the close relationships in your life and areas which you are feeling discouraged in. There may come a time where we will explore your childhood family experiences, and the inner dialogue you have with yourself. I feel honoured to be a part of your journey and will do so in a nonjudgmental environment where we will explore what is blocking you from truly feeling whole.
