I am a Registered Social Worker who provides individual counselling for various presenting concerns. I have experience ranging from children’s mental health, crisis counselling, to geriatrics, and more
I am bilingual and continue to serve members of many diverse communities. I am fluent in spoken Urdu and can also provide services for those who speak Hindi and Punjabi. I provide spiritual counselling to ALL communities, with a focus on the Muslim community.
I am a client-centred therapist that operates from a non-judgemental, anti-oppressive framework. I believe that we as beings operate holistically in that our mental-emotional system is linked to all of our other systems: physical, spiritual, and social-cultural. My clients and I journey together on a path of therapeutic goals designed to address each individual holistically. You are the guide on this journey and so you identify the systems that are relevant to you.
It is my role to make observations, to validate, to encourage, and to challenge you. I believe that aside from the learning and understanding that happens within our sessions, the rest of the therapeutic practice happens in your everyday life. Therefore, I encourage a lot of practice and real-life implementation of what is being addressed in the sessions.
I have completed a certification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and I also
incorporate other therapeutic practices into my work such as,
Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, and Mindfulness.
