I have over 18 years of experience with diverse population of clients. I started my professional work as a student’s mentor in the year 2000 at the Joseph’s College in Bangalore, India – a 5 star accredited university college established by the Jesuits in 1882.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I am an independent practitioner and clinical supervisor as per the standards set by CRPO. I am always willing to go ‘beyond’ the call for those who seek my support and intervention. I have conducted several hours of couple therapy sessions, individual sessions for adults struggling with multiple mental health issues, especially trauma work for adults wrestling with psychological and emotional issues from childhood. I integrate multi-faith, multi-cultural and multi-generation dimensions into psychotherapy. I have struggled well to bridge the gap amongst therapeutic approaches ranging from psychoanalytical track to mindfulness-based cognitive therapy ( MBCT) cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing ( EMDR ).
I received my intensive training in Integrative psychotherapy at the Blanton-Peale Institute, New York, USA, founded by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and subsequently completed my doctoral residency program at the Vancouver General Hospital, Vancouver, BC, Canada. I have also worked in various clinical settings in Canada,USA, Singapore, South Africa and Malaysia and Thailand. I believe in the transformative power of therapeutic relationship that helps in the recovery of my clients. I will ensure that you will find a ‘safe place‘ to begin your healing journey with me and my unconditional support for you to navigate your road to healing, recovery and personal growth.
