Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, or going through a difficult life change? Are you having trouble managing your emotions? Or, is pain from the past or worries about the future making it hard to experience joy or peace now? I work to see the person behind the problem, to be present with you, and to empower you to make changes where needed or find a path to coping and acceptance when change isn’t available. Given the chance to tell your story and explore patterns in thoughts, behaviours, and relationships, you can more clearly see how to feel better and I can help you to do that.

While life can be joyful, it can sometimes be difficult. There may be times when it's useful to seek help outside of your current circle of support by talking with a therapist. As a therapist, it is important to me that there is a good "fit" between myself and potential clients as this helps to ensure that your therapy experience is the best possible. I have experience helping individuals coping with anxiety/depression, grief/loss and chronic or critical illness.

I provide therapy to individuals that are struggling with a variety of issues such as stress, life transitions, mental health issues, addictions, and much more. I specialize in addiction treatment with individuals and support whatever goals they set for themselves, either based in abstinence or harm reduction. I also specialize in working with family members of loved ones with addiction as this issue within a family can create a lot of overwhelming fear, chaos, and stress. I also provide clinical supervision to other social workers and psychotherapists.

‘Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.’ W. Dyer. Sometimes that’s easier said than done though, right? It may not be possible to avoid stress for the rest of our lives, but it is absolutely possible to have the strategies to work through it and the support to facilitate it. My work is centered on helping people figure out ‘life’ - managing relationships with others and self, dealing with big emotions, working through trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, all while honoring and caring for a person’s whole self.

Difficult life experiences can have a profound effect on our psychological and physical health, at times creating tightly held patterns in our minds and bodies. Learning to feel our way through can be challenging - it can also be very freeing. With a genuine concern for your well-being, and a warm and compassionate approach, I will work with you to help draw forth the intuitive healer that is already within you. Whether you prefer traditional talk therapy and/or mindfulness-based coping strategies, the journey will be an inward one as you move forward.

“Child and Youth Specialists” You’ve noticed that your child isn’t quite themselves lately, that they are withdrawn, and isolated, or struggling with severe anxiety. Maybe they are experiencing intense mood swings, anger outbursts, or even destructive behaviours such as self-harm or substance use. You are worried because your child won’t open up and share with you. You want to help your child, but you don't know how to. It is so scary to feel helpless when it comes to your child and to not know exactly what they need.

My main role as your counsellor is to support you through difficult times and challenges, while helping you achieve optimal psychological and emotional health and well being. As your “co-pilot” on this journey, I bring to the “cockpit”: clinical training and experience with a broad range of issues and treatment approaches. I am comfortable with people of all cultures, orientations and spiritual and/or religious backgrounds. Certified by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, I provide counselling and therapy using an integrative approach, weaving together various methods to suit your unique needs. I enjoy working collaboratively with you in a non-judgmental way, embracing your strengths, unique characteristics, values, and insights as we strive together to determine direction and pace. In addition to my clinical training I bring several years experience as a public educator and volunteer youth leader to the table. I believe this experience helps me build rapport with clients aged 12 - adult.

Life is challenging and it is easy to begin to feel overwhelmed by situations, relationships, life events and world events that just seem (or sometimes truly are) out of our control. Finding hope again is possible! As a psychotherapist, my goal is to walk with you for a period of time to help you to navigate through some of those difficult situations, life changes and events. Sometimes it is just important to know that you are not alone in facing the challenges of life.

We often go through life experiencing challenges that are unique to our own personal relationships, schooling/careers, self-discovery/development, or spiritual/religious journeys. It is with this understanding that mental health issues and life's emotional struggles can be personalized to each and every individual, understood and emphasized from your particular point of view. Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem and/or vocational challenges can all interconnect and weave together to form a complex, yet complicated picture of your particular struggles.

Carl Jung stated, “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” We all encounter hardships; however, I believe we can choose what we make of those experiences. Every person has the capacity for healing, growth, and change, and I am honoured to be part of that process with you. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. Presenting issues I have worked with include depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, emotion regulation, self-esteem, stress, burn out, and more.

It is so common, as we go through life, to fall into patterns or habits that are not congruent with the person that we want to be. When we feel this disconnection it can lead a discomfort that makes us want to avoid or distract ourselves from what we are truly feeling. I feel that therapy is an important tool that can be used to bring self-awareness to these parts of our lives. I believe that our emotions are invitations to be curious. Therapy is a commitment to putting aside time to consider what wisdom our emotions might have for us if we choose to tune in.

East meets West. It is a phrase we hear often but how does it translate into practice? The pull lies in the strength of the familiar; the push is an urge to create space and jump into the unfamiliar. As an individual who was raised between two cultures, I offer a warm and safe space to discuss cultural competency as it relates to your life. Retaining your cultural values and traditions while simultaneously assimilating to the societal norms of your geographic upbringing can lead to many questions about ourselves in the past, present, and future. Additionally, I work with Gujarati, Hindi, and Punjabi speaking individuals and couples.
