About me

As a South Asian I am aware of the influences and the internalizations of being South Asian and its conflicts with the North American values. It would be beneficial to balance the two and understand its manifestations in our presentations and inter-personal dynamics.

I offer counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families. I work with clients to improve their resiliency and help to uncover their strengths. I use different modalities to meet the individual’s needs. I use a client-centred approach that gives the client the ability to drive the sessions’ goals. I help clients connect the dots between patterns that were established in their childhood and its manifestations in adult life. This aids in understanding the connection between the two and enables an exploration of ways to alter them.

I offer Brainspotting, a somatic therapy  that helps in dealing with trauma symptoms.My areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, OCD, relationship issues,addictions, financial issues, anger management, bereavement, self-esteem, sexuality, issues related to being transgendered/transexual, trauma, workplace issues, MVA, and eating disorders.
Psychotherapy is a big part of my practice. Psychotherapy deals with the connection between past experiences, inner beliefs and perceptions, and the individual’s current situation. This would help clients to be able to gain insights, make connections between the past and the present, and to work on their issues.
