About me

R.S.W, M.S.W, B.S.W

Meet Preeti Taneja, the founder behind Canadian Therapy, a transformative sanctuary dedicated to mental health and well-being. Preeti’s inspiration for establishing this practice emerged from her personal experiences growing up in a traditional Indian family in Canada. As a South Asian female, she felt the tension of balancing her heritage with her identity as a first-generation Canadian. Witnessing the struggles her parents faced in upholding Indian values in a foreign land ignited her mission to bridge the cultural gap and provide much-needed support services for the South Asian community.

Preeti’s therapeutic approach is deeply rooted in her understanding of the complexities faced by South Asian individuals. She navigates the intersection of tradition and modernity, guiding her clients through the intricate layers of their cultural upbringing. Drawing from her own struggles and triumphs, Preeti creates a safe space where clients can openly explore their emotions, identities, and challenges.

Canadian Therapy, under Preeti’s guidance, blossomed into a diverse and inclusive haven, attracting a team with varied cultural backgrounds. Preeti recognizes the significance of cultural relatability and ensures that therapy sessions are tailored to each individual’s unique background and experiences. Her goal is to dismantle the stigma surrounding mental health within the South Asian community, fostering authentic, transparent conversations about emotions and well-being.

The undeniable truth is that the South Asian community often grapples with a deep-seated discomfort surrounding mental health issues. Conversations about mental well-being are frequently shrouded in silence, both individually and as a collective. There exists a pervasive unease, hindering a people’s ability to openly discuss the emotional impact of mental health on themselves and their loved ones. In the community, there is a tendency to conceal the truth, attempting to create an illusion of a flawless world—a facade that, in reality, is unattainable for anyone. However, it is within our power to foster a healthier, safer atmosphere in our day-to-day lives.

Encouraging transparent, genuine conversations is paramount. By doing so, we pave the way for more individuals to take the vital steps toward improving their quality of life.

Clients frequently express their struggles in discussing mental health with partners or friends due to the societal stigma that shrouds these conversations. It is high time to bridge this gap, amplifying these discussions and normalizing them. The reality is that numerous individuals, including those experiencing anxiety and depression, grapple with mental health issues.

The Canadian Therapy team, collectively aims to dismantle the barriers, creating a supportive space where everyone’s mental well-being is valued and prioritized.

For Preeti, therapy is not merely a crisis intervention but a fundamental aspect of self-care and personal growth. She empowers her clients to gain clarity and insight into their lives, allowing them to navigate the complexities of modern existence confidently. By encouraging open dialogues and normalizing mental health discussions, Preeti is breaking barriers, one session at a time.

Through Canadian Therapy, she is not just providing a service –  she is fostering a movement, advocating for mental well-being as an essential and normalized part of life.

Preeti has also worked with some of the leading health organizations in Canada, including:

5 Years with University Health Network (UHN) working at Toronto General Hospital
2 Years with Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre
2 Years with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
2 Years with Toronto North Support Services
