I work with people that have challenges with Substance Use , Trauma, Relational issues, Sex and Sexuality.
I am frequently taken by the amount of pain and suffering in the world, I have learned that through these moments we can find the most growth, strength, and beauty. Often we can get stuck in-between these painful moments and a new way of being, That's often what brings people to therapy. Our work together may be a journey to help you get unstuck or out of the place of crisis and to find a sense of safety. I feel it is a privilege to be able to be a part of someone's journey and be able to walk along beside them.

I have over 20 years of experience helping youth and adults forge a path of health and wellness through the complex nature of problematic substance use and concurrent disorders.
If changing your relationship with alcohol and/or other drugs is a challenge, you do not need to figure it out alone. I provide individual counselling designed to support you in being able to reduce the negative impacts of substance use , and increase your quality of life. I work within a compassionate, trauma-informed, harm reduction approach. Even if your goal is complete abstinence, when we work within a harm reduction approach, it means that we work collaboratively, we acknowledge benefits of substance use , and we focus on your strengths which all lead to creating sustainable change. Currently providing phone and video sessions.

Throughout my life, I have negotiated what it means to be queer and Muslim, to feel and be seen as different, both to myself and the world. This lived resistance informs my commitment to serve 2SLGBTQ+ communities through an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, decolonial, and intersectional lens. I work with addictions, anxiety, depression, gender/sexuality, life transitions, mood, newcomers and refugees, palliative care, people living with HIV, racial trauma, sex and intimacy, and substance use /misuse (including PnP/chemsex and crystal meth use).

I work collaboratively with clients to explore and process past and current experiences that include early childhood and attachment trauma; combat trauma; grief and loss; life transitions; relationship concerns; substance use ; eating disorders; and anxiety and depression.
Suffering is an inherent part of the human experience. However, we often feel that we are alone in our suffering, that no one can relate to our experiences, or that we don’t deserve to find peace in our lives. This can create feelings of frustration and despair, and we begin to feel stuck, unable to connect with others. Fear of judgement, along with our vulnerabilities can keep us from reaching out when we need it the most. I am confident that every person holds an innate understanding of what they need to heal and grow. Grounded in compassion, humility, and curiosity, my aim is to co-create a safe, open space for self-exploration.

As an experienced therapist, I offer individual, couple’s and family counselling. Whether it’s addiction based issues, such as substance use , gambling and sex, or emotional issues from our journey as young children, many of these issues can be concurrent with many mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, etc. Any one or a combination of these can keep us from finding our true, authentic selves. Through therapy, you can have the chance to be heard, believed and empowered. These are key to our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual recovery as individuals and together.
