I help women who are: 1) charting their path to create the life they really want, 2) recalibrating their path to reconnect with their intrinsic values.
For anyone out there who feels like they are failing at “having it all,” I’m here to break it to you. You haven’t failed. Attaining perfection in our lives is a myth, and it’s holding so many of us back from the happiness we deserve. Especially in this modern day and age, we are flooded with highlight reels of what our lives should be. While most of us would admit that no one’s life can be picture perfect 24/7, many of us still stretch ourselves too thin to “do it all” to gain acceptance from society. The truth is this... It is almost impossible to have a picture perfect life without serious consequences to your wellbeing!

As a queer South Asian woman , I hope to provide mental health services to individuals from diverse communities, particularly those from cultures that do not have a keen awareness of mental health, such as my own.
I believe that no one is immune to life's challenges and variabilities. Hopelessness, anxiety, fear, and other negative emotions can become overwhelming, affecting our overall wellness, leaving us exhausted. I help my clients overcome these difficult emotions by providing a non-judgmental, affirming and safe environment that respects boundaries and offers the space they require for their healing process.

As a mature woman and Mother of three, I bring many years of experience.
You enjoy being in control of your circumstances, confident in the decisions you are making, and clear about where you are headed. However, there are times when you feel overwhelmed and uncertain. At these times you struggle to make changes and move forward. It is important to have a safe place to talk about your feelings, work through your fears, and gain some understanding and clarity. I believe no one knows you better than YOU do. It is my privilege to work with you as you journey through the process of self-discovery. I have experienced many changes in my life that have allowed a deeper understanding of the human experience.

As a queer woman , I'm passionate about offering supports for the LGBTQ+ community in a comfortable space.
I understand the feeling of struggling to exist as your genuine self in a world that feels against you, in an environment that feels suffocating, and in a relationship that feels unendurable. Our lives do not exist in a bubble, and our experiences are impacted by the intersecting identities each of us hold. When we reach out for help, we are hoping that someone can understand us and hold space for our stories. I work with people every day who are looking for support in understanding how they can live congruently with their own values and core beliefs.

My clients tend to be ambitious women in their 20s & 30s, 2LGBTQ+ folks, creatives, activists, counsellors/social workers, & graduate students grappling with a sense of "not good enough.
I believe therapy is about supporting your innate strengths and wisdom. Whether you’re feeling frustrated, afraid of failing, stuck, or never feel good enough (been there); or you're done with this pandemic (me too), I will listen and support you in cultivating greater awareness and compassion. I specialize in supporting folks struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, self discovery, inner criticism, inadequacy, inattention, and difficult transitions (career, school, relationships). We'll discuss your goals, reconnect with your values, and explore ways to move through life's difficulties so you can do more of what matters to you.

I also work with both male and female survivors of sexual abuse and assault.
If you choose to work with me I will strive to create a safe, respectful and meaningful relationship with you. I will listen carefully, with empathy and without judgement. Sometimes I ask a lot of questions in order to understand, to the best of my ability, what things are like for you. In working together to help me understand your story, usually what happens is that things start to make more sense for you too. Confusion often gives way to clarity. Feelings such as anxiety, anger, depression and isolation often subside as well.

I am most passionate about working with women who feel like they are “not good enough,” worry about their image, are critical of their interactions with others, and avoid situations in which they may be judged negatively.
Waitlist for July 2022. Feeling worried, insecure, or doubtful in your relationships? I want to help you achieve solutions and life changes you are looking for, while enjoying the process as much as possible and experiencing yourself in new ways. Simply put, therapy doesn’t have to always be a painful thing. You’ll have a dedicated space to unload your worries, learn how to navigate challenges with grace, and feel empowered to develop fresh insights about your life. Getting in touch with a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to reach out and see how I can help.

I am a skilled individual and couples counselor, having devoted training and expertise to this. Allow yourself to reach out and safely achieve your goals.

My personal experiences with immigration, trauma, military life and as a woman of colour in the professional world have positively shaped my clinical practice.
Drawing from evidence-based research and best practice in emotional, cognitive and behavioral science, we’ll craft a therapeutic space for you to deepen your self-understanding, your motivation for healing and wellness and build a toolbox to strengthen your relationships, personally and professionally. As a therapist, I have an anti-oppressive lens, while using a systemic, psychodynamic, and trauma-informed approach.
