“Anger, resentment and jealousy doesn't change the heart of others-- it only changes yours.”

Registered Psychotherapist

Happenstance played a role in my decision to pursue counselling. However, I have always held strong opinions about taking care of one’s mental and emotional well-being. My views were further strengthened post two significant life events. The first one had the opportunity to work abroad with adolescents from different cultural backgrounds undergoing significant life stressors. The second was my role as a counsellor providing therapy to women from marginalized communities struggling to overcome their mental health difficulties. Both these instances acted as a turning point in my professional and academic life – I had found my “calling.” Additionally, one of my many interests includes working with the immigrant and refugee population. My view on therapy is a non-judgmental, client-centred, and collaborative approach specifically tailored to meet clients’ needs.
