I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Psychology from the University of Delhi, India. I attained a second Master’s degree at Ambedkar University which focused on the Psychodynamic approach to therapy. After seven years of experience in working in a range of settings, from private practice to shelter homes and community clinics, I decided to move to Ontario. I have continued to seek out training opportunities and have completed various certifications and courses such as suicide prevention training and mental health practice in Ontario. I am a member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals. My clinical experience in two different countries, allows me to connect authentically with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds. I speak fluent English, Hindi and Punjabi and conversational Urdu.
Throughout my journey as a mental health professional, I have strived to provide empathic care with unwavering commitment. My approach to therapy is rooted in the belief that every individual journey is unique and deserving of personalized support. Guided by this principle, I combine Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Client-Centered, Psychodynamic and attachment-based approaches in my work. I work from a systemic, trauma-informed, queer-affirmative, and culturally-sensitive lens that creates a safe and nurturing space where healing can flourish.
I provide individual therapy to adults and adolescents (16+). My areas of interest include:
