I provide counselling to youth, adults, individuals, couples, and families and I have over 14 years of experience as a clinician on the frontline and in leadership teams.

You’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed and it causes you to overthink, "doom scroll", or lash out at others. The mere thought of work; seeing that person, or having that conversation seems too unbearable. When you get up the courage to do the ‘thing’, it feels like it never works out, leaving you feeling misunderstood, discouraged and stuck. You’re often told that you are “too much”. Over time, you’ve come to believe it, resent it and blame yourself. You spend so much time trying to be a version of yourself that is acceptable to others that at the end of the day you’re exhausted. And now you realize that it's time to make a change.

Frustrated and overwhelmed? Is your closest relationship struggling under the weight of misunderstandings, frustrations and resentments? You would give anything to feel accepted, appreciated and loved again. Or perhaps you’re at a lost about how to parent and support your child who struggles with attention, impulsivity or emotions. Your child may be feeling stressed that they can’t seem to behave in a way they know they should. You may be feeling exhausted and angry that you can’t be the partner or parent you know you can be. These are all typical feelings and experiences for individuals and families impacted by ADHD or autism.

Sometimes we feel sadness and worry that we cannot seem to shake. At these times, we feel hopeless and helpless and believe that we have nowhere and no one to turn to. Dealing with these feelings alone can be overwhelming and unbearable. When we find ourselves at this low point, the only way to go is up. I am here to help you to reach that up point, and have a happier life. I am committed to reducing the suffering and distress associated with psychological trauma, anxiety disorders, depression, grief and loss, adjustment difficulties, and self-esteem issues.

I focus on empowering my clients to continue participation in meaningful activities despite their mental health challenges. Over the years, I have built expertise and knowledge around treatment of OCD, Trauma, Anxiety and Depression and ASD. As a new mother in a global pandemic, I also found a passion in supporting new parents overcome the numerous mental health challenges that come with parenthood. I believe that this is a sensitive and important period of transition and change for parents, requiring compassionate support and understanding. For this reason, I offer both individual and group therapy to meet various client needs.

You’re exhausted, overwhelmed, and feel like you never quite get it good enough. You’re just.so.tired of beating yourself up. You try so hard. And so far, you’ve faked it pretty well. No one has realized you’re not quite what they think you are. You woke up today: (healthy?) lunch for your kids, enough make-up to cover the flaws, dressed in a (stylish??) outfit that hides that problem area. At work, you managed to get through the day without anyone pointing out how little you know or how many times you felt inadequate (should work more this weekend!). You come home, ugh. The mess…you just cleaned…why does it already look so bad??

Trauma lives in our bodies whether we recognize it or not. Although we might not know exactly what or how we are feeling, our bodies keep track. We’ve witnessed and experienced many things that have shaped us and how we perceive the world around us. As your therapist, I will hold a safe and confidential space for you to open up and unpack the trauma that is stored in your mind, body, and soul. As a first-generation Tamil Canadian, I recognize the impacts of intergenerational and racial trauma and how it affects the way we navigate different spaces and various relationships.

As a BIPOC psychotherapist, you hold yourself to high standards because you have the best intentions coming into this career. Yet despite that, there's still a nagging feeling that you're not doing enough or you'd somehow get in trouble with CRPO. Psychotherapy is highly regulated so you aim to meet the standards and practice ethically. You do your research, ask around, review your notes, but you're still unsure and afraid. Not only are you navigating burnout and imposter syndrome, but you also feel shamed by some therapists on Facebook groups who seem to have it so easy and all figured out.

Counselling can be a helpful tool when you are feeling overwhelmed due to stress, mental health concerns, history of trauma, strain in a relationship, or a situational stress. Stress can complicate and add layers to your nervous system, leaving you in a “fight or flight” state causing feelings of anxiety, low mood, and irritability. I would like to help you learn more about yourself, strategies to manage and lessen stress, and find a sense of calm again.

As we move through life, we come across experiences/challenges that may bring up old patterns and feelings. Sometimes old patterns can get in the way of us living up to our full potential. Sometimes our emotions feel too overwhelming to understand and process what is happening in our lives. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe and collaborative space where you can be seen, heard, and witnessed, allowing you to unpack your lived experiences free of judgment. Through our work together we will explore what has been working well for you and where you would like to see growth and re-alignment with your true self.
