For as long as I can remember, I was drawn to working in a setting where I could help people live fully and connect deeply. We seem to know how to treat a broken bone, yet I noticed gaps in how we support others through mental health challenges and the struggles we face in life. This led me to complete an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree with a Specialization in Psychology at the University of Ottawa, and to pursue my Masters at Trinity Western University in Counselling Psychology. I have completed all required courses, and am currently working on my thesis researching grieving a miscarriage in first and second generation Indo-Canadians. My main areas of interest are couples counselling and pregnancy/fertility/maternal health. Through my research, clinical, and group therapy work, I work mainly with couples and individuals on infidelity, terminal illness, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, self-esteem, and gender identity and sexuality.

I am here to provide guidance to achieve your goals, experience growth, and feel supported in life’s challenges. Sometimes we need new tools and a fresh perspective to help to work through past hurts and reach our potential for all that we can become. My primary lens combines family-system approaches with attachment-based therapies for individuals and couples. I have also completed my level 1 and 2 training in Gottman Therapy, an empirically-validated couples therapy. I believe the way we have learned to cope and respond to others is shaped by our past experiences, upbringing, and relationships. We can find growth in exploring what we have come to believe about ourselves, others, and how we see the world. I work with my clients to create a plan for treatment based on their needs and desires for change. I warmly welcome clients of all faiths, gender identities, and sexualities. To see if we would be a good fit, call me for a free 20-minute phone consultation at (604) 237-0795 ext. 2.
