About

Life can be challenging, especially when we experience stressors which can get in the way of us reaching our fullest potential. Whether you are struggling with negative thoughts, distressing emotions, a difficult relationship or making sense of the events in your life. You may find yourself repeating behaviours you are unhappy with, but struggle to break the pattern. No matter how big or small the problem, through therapy one can gain skills to navigate these difficult times.
In my practice I ensure that we are engaging in insightful and compassionate conversations to help individuals make meaningful changes in their lives. It is my practice and belief as a therapist, that we can all benefit from learning new skills, tools and/or coping skills.
I am a first-generation Tamil-Canadian and I work from a culturally-sensitive, client centred, and trauma-informed lens. I also provide services in Tamil and English. In practice I use a generalist approach drawing from various evidence-based approaches including CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness. Most importantly, meeting clients where they are at.
