About me

Thank you for taking a step to look into therapy. In doing so you are taking an active part in your healing and courageously reaching for what you would like to have in your life.

I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC) with The Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT). Born and raised in Mumbai, India, I moved to Vancouver, Canada at the age of 23. I have always been interested in people’s stories. I have always been interested in people’s stories. Curious to know how a person has got to where they are today. Curious to understand what has happened in that person’s life till that very moment.

Life can be challenging and, at times, overwhelming. We find ourselves stuck, wondering how to move forward. Life transitions like divorce, parenting, co-parenting, career changes, immigrating or moving can be stressful and leave us wondering how to cope. We could find ourselves in relationships, whether it be family, work, friendships or romantic partnerships, struggling with patterns and behaviours that do not serve us or the relationship. All of the above can be stressful creating constant rumination and anxiety that can be draining with no energy for much else. I hear you. I see youYou are not alone.

I offer you a space where you can take a breath and release some of the heavy load you are carrying. In therapy, we will journey together into self-discovery to deepen self-awareness. We will explore, uncover and unhook from behaviour patterns and belief systems that may be the source of your struggle. I will support you in understanding the root of the issue, change your relationship to it and build awareness. Accessing this inner wisdom allows you to respond rather than react building resilience and resources for the future.

My approach is holistic and trauma-informed. My therapeutic training and practice is a combination of modalities including transpersonal, person-centered, gestalt, family systems and intergenerational trauma therapy integrated with somatic and mindful techniques.

I work with you wherever you are at with an open, compassionate heart, a curious, non-judgmental presence, and an abundance of spirit to be with you in your dark places and help you find spaces to let your light shine through. I believe you have an internal strength or as I like to call it Soul Strength. When accessed, this can get you through circumstances that seem insurmountable. I am here to support you in taking your next steps towards living your life to the fullest.

I offer a free 15-minute no obligation consultation before booking as it is essential to the therapeutic process that you find a counsellor that you feel connected and comfortable with. I look forward to connecting with you.
