I specialize in active addiction and in addiction recovery; however, my scope does not end there.
Whatever has brought you here - the weariness of depression, the struggle of addiction , the heaviness of anxiety, the uncertainty of life in its entirety - I welcome you. Whether you have experienced a trauma, are going through a life transition, or just need someone to talk to, someone who will listen without judgement or scorn, my passion and goal as a clinician is to hold the space for you, walk with you through the darkness, guide you to peace and well-being, and help you to live a life you love.

Hi there, my name is Maryam, and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). My goal is to provide you a safe space to express how you’re feeling. I am a first-generation South-Asian settler living, working, and playing, on the sacred, stolen, and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. I identify as a third-culture kid and know how difficult it can be to feel like you belong, especially while struggling with the multiple pressures of our communities or families.

I have been working as a counsellor for over ten years and specialize in working with trauma, substance use and mental health conditions.
There are so many reasons a person might choose to seek counselling. Perhaps some life experience has left you feeling overwhelmed and disconnected; perhaps you struggle with depression or anxiety. There may be behaviours that you are engaging in that you don’t feel good about or are causing problems in your life, or maybe there’s a more general feeling of malaise or low self esteem. If you want to move forward in your life, change behaviours or unwanted patterns; restore a sense of meaning and purpose; build confidence and vitality; and learn healthier ways to cope with life's challenges... I believe I can help!

Change is difficult, and sometimes painful. If we decide we want to change some aspect of our life, it can feel frightening and also hopeful and exciting. Maybe we want to address substance use that is problematic, or to heal from some form of trauma, whether physical or emotional. Or perhaps we feel like we are living in a darkness or prison of depression, even suicidality, one that is difficult to explain or describe to anyone in our lives. This is when we need empathy and respectful, collaborative guidance as we walk the path of change. "Change happens through movement, and movement heals."
