Meet Our Students
I am a current City University Master of Counseling student. I have worked as a child as a child and family advocate and as a mental health coordinator in non-profits over the last 2 years. Much of my work experiences have been with adolescents and parents or caregivers dealing with trauma and difficult life situations. These experiences with trauma, grief and loss have shaped my understanding and influenced me to work from a place of connection and compassion necessary to help. I have learned to approach issues with inclusivity, empathy, and understanding that every experience is unique. I believe accommodating approaches. My therapeutic approach infuses inclusive and compassionate care using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. A strong client-psychologist relationship is centered around openness, trust, honesty with each other, and keeping a safe environment; and I intend to bring this into every session.
I am a psychology intern who is deeply committed to providing compassionate and effective therapy to clients from diverse backgrounds. I have received extensive training in a range of therapeutic approaches, including client-centered therapy, culturally inclusive therapy, anti-racist therapy, and LGBTQ+ affirming therapy.
My work is grounded in the belief that all individuals are experts in their own experiences, and that therapy should be a collaborative and empowering process. I strive to create a safe and supportive environment in which clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and work towards meaningful change.
In my practice, I draw upon a range of evidence-based therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy (SFT), Gottman's method for couples therapy, and narrative therapy. I believe that each of these approaches offers unique tools and strategies that can be tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual client.
Additionally, I am committed to providing therapy that is culturally sensitive and affirming, and that acknowledges and addresses the ways in which systemic oppression and discrimination can impact mental health. I strive to create a space in which clients from all backgrounds feel seen, heard, and valued, and in which their experiences and identities are celebrated.
Overall, I am dedicated to providing high-quality, compassionate, and effective therapy that supports clients in achieving their goals and living their best lives.
I am a proud Punjabi Sikh woman with a burning passion for psychology. Growing up in a Punjabi community, I have always been inspired by the power of understanding and supporting others. I believe that hard work, combined with empathy and compassion, can bring about profound transformations and healing in individuals. I am constantly seeking to expand my knowledge by engaging in research projects or actively participating in community initiatives. I am also deeply connected to my cultural roots. I strongly believe in diversity and the importance of embracing different perspectives. With my cultural background I aim to create an inclusive sensitive space where individuals can feel comfortable and understood. With my empathetic nature, I aim to contribute to the betterments of individuals, families and society as a whole

I am a practicum student completing my Master of Arts in Counselling at Yorkville University. I currently hold a bachelor's degree at Macewan University, with a major in psychology.
My approach works to balance client-centred, acceptance based, cognitive-behavioural and solution-focused therapies, each tailored to meet the client's current needs. I want to work with clients by helping them remove obstacles that will allow them to grow and be on the path to their fullest potential meeting their unique needs.
As a behavioural consultant, I have worked with families with children who have been diagnosed with developmental disabilities such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy and FASD. I worked with each family to identify specific goals they wanted to work on and provided support to meet each family's needs.
I look forward to meeting and working with many different people as my passion is supporting others to become their best selves.
