I am a trauma-informed registered social worker/psychotherapist in Ontario, and I offer individual one-on-one psychotherapy, over video or phone, with adults and adolescents/teenagers (15 – 19). The basis of my practice is rooted in an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, and queer-affirming framework. I have experience working with immigrants, refugee claimants, and migrants without immigration status/precarious immigration status. I provide psychotherapy services for refugee claimants as an approved Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) Health Care Provider. I am passionate about working with racialized communities and providing culturally informed and accessible services. I can provide services in English, Urdu, and Hindi.
I work with an understanding of trauma, migration, identity, childhood adverse experiences and their intersections. I also provide support with navigating through day-to-day personal, relationship, work, school, and other systemic challenges. I aim to collaboratively create a space that can feel safe to begin working towards therapeutic goals through exploration, reflection, and awareness. My role is to support and offer insight with the belief that individuals have the strength and capacity to guide themselves through their own journey.
I believe in an integrated approach to psychotherapy which means that I use knowledge from various theoretical sources, including narrative therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), and mindfulness techniques.
I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation for you to be able to ask questions and to determine if my practice will meet your current needs and aims for therapy. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
