About me

Hello there. I bring years of experience to the table. My extensive background includes working in the field of mental health and substance use. I have also worked in the college school system as an instructor in BC and have helped develop curriculum for a counselling diploma program in BC. My experience and knowledge blends together to give me the proper expertise to help you on the healing journey that you are on. In addition I also speak both English and Punjabi.

Education
I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Criminology in Burnaby at Simon Fraser University and later went on to complete my Masters of Social Work at the University of New England in USA in the year of 2016. I have been providing counselling ever since.

Beginnings
I was born in the quaint saw mill town of Mackenzie BC. A few years later my parents moved to Surrey, BC where I would grow up and attend elementary school, high school and later university.

Values
I work with different approaches. However my principle values are being non-judgmental, empathetic, and patient as you navigate the counselling journey that unfolds ahead of you. I understand that the journey towards healing is not linear, and serve as your guide as you navigate the ups and downs in your healing journey.

Social Justice
In our sessions I welcome discussions on instances where you may have been discriminated against. Situations where we endure discrimination can leave a heavy imprint on our mental health, and lead us to not want to connect to other individuals for the fear of being discriminated and treated unjustly once again. I also understand how discrimination due to sexism, racism, ableism, sexuality, ethnicity, and etc can form as barriers to our advancement as individuals, wether its in the workplace or in other spaces and places.
