The wound is the place where light enters you. At any given point, you have the power to change the story of your life and as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), I am here to support you in this goal of regaining self-awareness, acceptance, and transformation so that you can re-write a more positive, well-balanced, and holistic script to lead a more fulfilling life.
My passion for supporting people in their healing journey is rooted in a massive stigma around mental health, which I experienced while growing up in Pakistan. I have worked towards raising awareness about maternal and children health issues, pregnancy stress, postpartum depression, and respectful parenting. I have provided compassionate, people-centered, and strength-based support to people from diverse, multicultural communities, to help them cope with anxiety, depression, stress, grief, isolation, relationship issues, suicidal ideation etc. I follow a culturally sensitive approach and I understand the subtle nuances of relationships and family issues in a collectivistic culture. Being an immigrant myself, I am acquainted with the struggles and challenges of acculturation.
I have additional training in ADHD, Trauma-informed care, Couples and Families (Gottman and EFT), ACT, CBT and DBT and multiple other modalities.
