Pronouns (she/ her)

Hello and welcome! My name is Merwareed Mona Fakhry (I go by either Merwareed or Mona) and I am a student therapist at Bloom Psychology & Wellness TO completing my practicum. I currently attend Yorkville University as a Master of arts in Counselling Psychology student. My lived experience as a diaspora has shaped my approach to therapy, where I aim to support clients’ mental health from an intersectional approach. I strive to understand the sociopolitical, cultural, and historical factors that contribute to people’s health and healing. During community initiatives with my community (Afghan diaspora) and other BIPOC diaspora, that center mental health, therapy and wellness, I have witnessed both the intergenerational trauma and healing from our collective pain and resistance. Attending therapy, healing wounds you may not even know were there, uncovering your inner strengths, is an individual and collective resistance. I hope you will allow me to support you as you navigate this journey.

Being a student therapist means I am still learning many approaches and here are a few theories/frameworks I hope to embody aspects of during our work together with your growth and safety in mind:

• Mindfulness-Based therapy
• Emotional Focused therapy
• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
• A Culturally Responsive and Socially Just Framework

I believe in collective, generational and ancestral ways of healing that are personal to the client and their community. I hope to work together to support you in bringing those aspects of yours/your peoples’ stories and ways of being in the therapeutic space. If you feel we would work well together, I encourage you to reach out for a free consultation. It takes courage to seek support and my goal is for you to feel supported, seen and empowered in our work together.

I am clinically supervised by Avni Jain, M.Ed RP.
