As a woman of colour, I understand what it is like to live in more than one culture and navigate generational differences. I aim to use my lived experience and knowledge to help you better understand yourself, develop effective coping skills, and find greater meaning in life and relationships. I am experienced in working with individuals coping with anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions (including immigration), addictions, identity-related issues, ADHD, and personality disorders.
I take a client-centered collaborative approach to meet you where you’re at, and to understand your unique needs and life narrative. I am guided by compassion and offer a safe environment for you to explore and process yourself and experiences, ultimately move toward healing.
I draw from several trauma-informed theories such as attachment and poly-vagal theories which involve the mind and body and explore the impact of early experiences on current distress and difficulties, and help foster self-compassion. I also weave together various therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural, Dialectical Behavioural, Emotion-focused and, Solution Focused therapy and mindfulness.
I welcome the chance to journey with people from all backgrounds and to get to know you and I am honoured to meet all of the parts that make up who you are.
I provide therapy in English, Hindi and Farsi.
