“For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love”
– Carl Sagan
When life starts to shift or change, sometimes we can feel like there is no solid ground beneath our feet. Therapy can be an intimidating resource to approach, but it can truly allow us to learn about the strengths we already possess and how to better utilize them to better ourselves and reach our goals. I work from a base of empathy and compassion with the goal of helping people improve their own lives. I hope to help you realize your goals and build a plan to reach them.
Throughout my career, I have been deeply passionate about working with marginalized and specialized communities, such as students, adults with special needs, and the LGBTQ+ community. I have experience as an individual counsellor, working in administration with employee assistance programs, and providing crisis support through a nation-wide call line.
I take an integrative approach to working with adults, utilizing a range of therapeutic techniques and interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Approaches, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, Solution-focused methods, Person-Centred therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in my clinical practice. I seek in all situations to learn about you and tailor our plan together to best support your individual needs.
At Therapy Villa, I provide services under the supervision of Ms. Niyati Gandhi, M.A., C.Psych.
I read and listen to endless podcasts on any topic imaginable. Additionally, my dog Casper and cat Missy bring me joy every day; they are my whole world.
