About

I am a South Asian, gay/queer, cisgender man, immigrant/settler, & I have extensive experience working with heterosexual & queer/2SLGBTQ+ individuals & couples. I have an MA in Human Sexuality from San Francisco State University (2010) & an MA in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University (2022). I welcome you with an open mind and a willingness to learn more about whatever might be holding you back in life or your relationship(s). My approach to therapy is client-centred and collaborative. I strive to explore solutions that work for you in your environment. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with CRPO.
I provide a safe space for individuals and couples to explore situations and emotions that might be causing distress. I do this by combining my training in human sexuality and psychotherapy. I not only want you to feel heard but also feel supported, understood, and empowered to improve the quality of your life and relationship(s).
I have previously worked as a researcher exploring relationship dynamics and negotiations in the context of sexual health and taught sexual health courses to medical students at Stanford University and UCSF. My areas of focus include sexual health education, support to racialized individuals, members of the queer community, and newcomers to Canada.
