About me

*Currently taking new clients for in-person, online, and phone counselling*

*Direct billing to CVAP (with top off) and ICBC (with top off)*

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor of South Asian descent. I conduct counselling in-person, by phone, and online in English and Punjabi. I am a culturally competent counsellor with experience working with different cultures, including the South Asian community. I specialize in working with individuals of all ages to address anxiety, depression, and trauma issues. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to express themselves. I empathize with clients’ struggles with cultural demands and pressures and provide them with interventions and techniques to help them cope and overcome their struggles. I have experience working with Canadian-born children and their struggles with meeting the demands of both Canadian and Punjabi cultures.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based CBT, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Play Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. My work emphasizes using different modalities that best suit the client’s needs. I provide a holistic approach to allow clients to connect to their mind, body, and soul.

I aim to empower you by providing a safe space to voice your story. I am excited to learn about your worldviews and unique qualities. I encourage you to work through your challenges with me and work towards your journey of healing and resilience.
