For over a decade I have accompanied my clients’ therapeutic journeys. “My clients truly are experts on themselves”. Working with ethnically diverse adults, couples, and families across Canada, the United States, and India has strengthened my belief that my clients’ self-knowledge is untapped, yet profound.
My therapeutic style is influenced by my training in clinical psychology and my South Asian roots. Blending western psychology and eastern philosophy enables me to offer a holistic approach to therapy. My understanding of language and cultural nuances in both the eastern and western worlds ensures approachability and empathy in the relationship we will build.
In therapy, I regularly integrate from some of the most effective therapeutic approaches including cognitive behavioural (CBT, DBT), emotion-focused, attachment-based, and mindfulness-based therapies. Additionally, I am Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed and trained in EMDR which enables me to help individuals process and resolve traumatic experiences as well as understanding and reconcile internal conflicts by identifying and engaging with different parts of the Self.
Apart from my training in traditional psychotherapy, I am keenly interested in the therapeutic application of psychedelics. She has completed her training from Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS USA) and Integrative Psychiatric Institute (IPI) to become a Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Provider. My training allows me to deliver MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD and Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and integrate experiences of non-ordinary states of consciousness (which psychedelics induce) an individual may have had outside of the therapy setting.
