Hey! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Samira & I offer a safe space where you can be heard and understood. Seeking therapy may be difficult and quite intimidating at first - but it’s one of the bravest things you can do - to take that step in order to understand your own life story and start the healing process and journey. It definitely takes a looot of courage! Understanding this, I strive to provide a compassionate, safe, empathetic, and non-judgmental space for you to feel comfortable to unburden yourself when it comes to the most personal and intimate parts of your life – one where you can explore and better understand yourself.
Through this process together, we can build on your strengths & develop resiliency, coping skills, tools, techniques & strategies so that you can manage life more effectively. I view the counselling process as a collaborative one - it’s a journey towards self-compassion, growth, understanding, reflection, self-discovery & towards living life to the fullest.
I work from client-centered, culturally-sensitive and trauma-informed lenses. I take an integrative approach and blend techniques from somatic, CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, & Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) . I look forward to working together with you in creating a space that supports you in your healing journey. Let's connect to see how I can best support you :)
