Over the past 12+ years in the field, I have worked with children, youth and adults in community, legal, child protection, corporate and university settings. I have focused my practice on supporting Survivors of violence along their healing journeys (including gender based, domestic, intimate partner, sexual, family, intergenerational, community violence). Currently, I am the Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Coordinator for the University of Toronto. I have extensive experience working with Muslim & racialized communities in both Canada and the USA, as well as Pakistan and Zanzibar.

Being a woman of color myself, I have served different minority communities (mainly the francophone community, the Muslim community and the LGBTQ community), striving to be sensitive and accepting to the cultural and religious life views of each individual.
We often read, “The answer lies within.” This can be frustrating for some because if it were true, then why see a therapist? Because I believe that while the answer does lie within you, it is buried under other parts of you: the “I shoulds,” the “I shouldn’ts,” the “I can’ts,” “the what ifs,” and generally, the anger, fear and stress that plagues us all. It is my goal as your therapist to harmonize the different parts of you by offering you a safe, supportive,compassionate environment where you can explore all that makes you, you. Together, we will create concrete steps to alleviate your suffering.

We all have the capacity to manage what comes our way, but sometimes it can feel like too much to carry on our own. Have you experienced a trauma that continues to bother you, impacts your relationships, career, or the ability to do the things you love? Do you feel anxious, depressed, stressed or overwhelmed most days? I want to help you feel more in control of your emotions so you are better able to navigate your day-to-day. Whether that means unravelling experiences of the past to make better sense of them or focusing on the here and now, we can do it together. Your emotions don't have to rob you of living a meaningful life.

Throughout life's journey we all face challenges of some sort. We all have our own stories and experiences that contribute to who we are and how we face adversity. When those difficulties feel like they are too overwhelming to manage, its OK to reach out for help. Whether you are feeling like life is too much, dealing with addictions issues, or are challenged with a diagnosis of a mental illness. Every person that I have the honour of traveling with on their journey has the ability to face the struggles ahead of them.

Our life is a story… We make sense of our journey and our sufferings through stories… Our pain stems from our disconnection from those stories… disconnection from our core self, from the Divine, from our true life meaning & purpose. When we disconnect, our body sends us warnings, Body Whispers, to tell us that something needs to change in our life - the warnings could be in the form of anxiety, depression, heartaches, body aches, or simple feeling of uneasiness… If we don’t listen, the Whispers get louder and louder until they become screams that we can no longer ignore.

I believe that we all have an inner knowing about who we are, what we need, how it is that we feel whole. It can be challenging sometimes to find our inner beacon to define where we want to go or determine the steps to getting there. I will work with you as a partner, a team player, to come to your truth and carve out the path that you want to take, so that life becomes a little more manageable or fulfilling.

You’ve probably spent a lot of time trying to fix things on your own, but maybe you’ve reached a point of exhaustion. You might be feeling overwhelmed, self-critical, & alone. You don’t know what else you can do to make yourself feel better, or how to keep up with the challenges you’re facing. Maybe there are cultural & social challenges that are making your situation worse. Maybe you're tired of running around in circles & have made the decision to see a counsellor so you don’t continue to feel like you’re “going crazy”.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Scarborough?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Scarborough specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
