Accepting New Clients - Are you feeling stuck and looking to regain momentum in your life? Whether you're grappling with grief, anxiety, trauma, relational conflict, or depression, some experiences can exert a particularly strong hold on us, affecting our sense of self, relationships, and overall well-being. As a registered psychotherapist with training in individual, couples, and family therapy, and with a background in Islamic spirituality and religious studies, I offer holistic, evidence-based psychotherapy and counselling services to my diverse clients.
Additionally, my intersectionality as a Muslim woman, South Asian, and "third-culture kid" allows me to adopt a culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and anti-oppressive perspective. This means that regardless of your cultural background and unique life experiences, I hope to provide evidence-based care, wherein you can feel safe, seen, and supported.
Embarking on a therapeutic journey not only requires immense courage and commitment, but it also requires a protective space that will facilitate your growth. When you're ready, please reach out for a free 15-minute consultation. I would love to hear from you!
