I am a registered Clinical and Counseling Psychologist in Ontario with expertise in individual and couple therapy. My approach to psychotherapy is client-centered. Below I list the therapy approaches I have substantial training in. I always start off with getting a good understanding of the issues a client is dealing with and where they are coming from before collaboratively developing a treatment plan. Learn more at http://www.torontopsychologyclinic.ca

My approach integrates the evidence-based models I have training in: Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural (DBT), Emotion-Focused (EFT), Psychodynamic, Social Constructivist and Family Systems. I also have experience working with individuals and couples dealing with physical health problems. My interest is in working with people of diverse backgrounds.

I have a special interest in cultural sensitivity. I provide services in English, Hindi and Urdu. I have lived in Canada, UK, US, India and the Middle East. My ethnic identity is South Asian and Middle Eastern.
