Becoming a therapist has been a lifelong dream of mine. Having family members and friends who have suffered through depression and suicidal ideation always motivated me to pursue this career because I did not want anyone to feel what my loved ones went through- feelings of helplessness, stigma, and loneliness. My perspective stems from my ethnic background and where I grew up. I am a Chinese-Tibetan woman, a second-generation Indian and a first generation Canadian.
My whole life, I have tried to adapt to a culture different from my own. Dealing with discrimination, racism, and prejudice can be disheartening and isolating when you consider that place your home. If you seek support, want a deeper understanding of yourself, or want someone to talk to, I am here for you. I uphold a strength based, non-judgmental, empathic, and trauma-sensitive space within my practice. Therapy is a collaborative relationship where we can work together to assess your current challenges, identify treatment goals and build a pathway to improving your well-being. Being client-focused and goal-oriented, together we will develop a therapeutic approach that best fits you.
I am currently accepting clients. I would be happy to meet you for a free 15-min phone or video consultation, and then you can decide if I am the right therapist for you.
I obtained a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from York University in 2017 and graduated with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University in 2023. I have dedicated the past six years of my career to the field of mental health. My journey began as an ABA therapist, where I worked closely with neurodiverse individuals. In this role, I provided support for individuals in their pursuit of emotional regulation and cognitive flexibility, and taught essential social and daily living skills.
I am now a licensed psychotherapist (qualifying) registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and a non-certified Professional Member of the CCPA.
