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). If you don't see your experience mentioned here, please reach out to chat further!

I support clients who are curious about finding new ways to manage their experiences of trauma, depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, emotion dysregulation, substance use , and family relationships.
You may have wondered at times, "Will I ever recover?", and I am here to let you know that change is always within your reach. It takes a lot of courage and vulnerability to begin a journey towards healing, and yet every human is entitled to a life that reflects their core values, strengths, and truest self. I believe that self-exploration is key to any change process, and accessing therapy is a brilliant and brave way to ignite this and to welcome yourself into an exciting new chapter of your life.

I work with people who are feeling stuck either through the result of a recent event or due to long-standing issues that are now causing distress. Many of the people I work with struggle with anxiety, substance use concerns or have a history of trauma. Some of my clients are looking for short-term Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions while others have tried brief therapy and are looking for longer term psychodynamically oriented treatment to make change at a deeper level. Sometimes people don't have clearly defined goals for treatment other than they want to feel better. That's okay.

As an individual and relationship therapist, I work in ways that are client-centered, strength-based, and compassionate. I believe we can create powerful change in our lives when we take time to explore the things that may be challenging us, acknowledge and access the strengths we possess, and begin to imagine what we hope for ourselves in creating solutions that work for us. Clients tell me they appreciate my ability to be authentic and personable in our conversations, and that they value getting to be a part of conversations that are honouring of the experiences they have encountered.
