Sumara Riaz
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)


I am an immigrant working with people from diverse backgrounds who are stuck in difficult situations or moods and want to cope with them effectively. I believe in providing a safe space where you can share your issues without having a fear of being judged or blamed. My style is providing clients unconditional positive regard so they feel more comfortable in sharing their difficulties.

Many people have a sense of being “stuck” and unable to proceed. I’m here to support you while you work through your problems and identify the causes of your paralysis.When dealing with life’s challenges, such as divorce, grief, elderly parents, or a loss of purpose, psychotherapy can be quite beneficial.

During our sessions, you might discover that you are dealing with multiple issues at once and are unsure of where to begin. This is by no means unusual. Nothing is off limits, and if you’re willing to explore alongside me, we can travel this path together without passing judgement and only with compassion. I’m here to guide you through this uncertain period you’re in.

I am well versed with CBT, ACT, compassion focused therapy, and my approach is trauma informed.
