MSW, CNP, RCC, YTT500
My past experience includes working as a clinical counsellor and program coordinator at a Health Centre in downtown Toronto and as a clinical counsellor and Case Manager at a women’s inpatient/outpatient drug treatment facility. Most of my outreach work was around issues of trauma, sexual assault and addictions.
I bring with me practice experience working with diverse segments of the population.
I am a first generation Canadian of South African Indian ancestry, raised straddling a line between two very different cultures and value systems. This lived experience serves me as a therapist to create a warm and judgement free space for clients to share their personal stories and truths.
My education includes an Honors Bachelors of Social Work at York University in Toronto and a Masters of Social Work at the University of Toronto where I specialized in a collaborative Mental Health and Clinical Counselling for Addictions Program.
I have additionally completed trainings in Narrative Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Gottman Couples Therapy to name just a few.
I consistently look for trainings, workshops, supervision opportunities, seminars, and new research to continue my learning.
