Life as it unfolds reveals moments of elation, surprise, disappointment and the like. None of us are immune to problems, suffering or making mistakes. Counselling is a powerful way to manage some of the emotional turmoil and can make our lives happier, easier, and more fulfilling. My aim is to help clients to feel empowered, to have a better understanding of themselves and others, and to work towards their goals individually and in their relationships with others.
I have over 15 years of experience working with couples, families, children, teens and adults on a variety of emotional and psychological concerns that include relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders and body image, as well as career and workplace problems. My therapy style is warm, empathetic, and client-centered, which means, that I believe you the client is the expert in finding your answers and coming to resolutions. What I offer you is a non-judgmental, safe and empowering space to explore and excavate deep emotions and memories that might be presenting as blocks in your life. In therapy, I will follow your moment-by-moment experience and be with you as you go to places in your mind that you may be afraid to trek alone. I will give you my undivided attention, hear you and try to understand your individual life experiences, while facilitating your efforts in regaining balance with your self. I use several different validated treatment approaches, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing EMDR, dialectical-behaviour therapy (DBT), emotion-focused therapy (EFT) and Gottman couples counseling techniques.
To meet my clients, I am available on the North Shore with a conveniently located office within the West Vancouver Community Center where I am part of an integrated team of health care professionals at Complement Healthcare and a private and tranquil home-based office in Lynn Valley. I also provide distance counselling via the telephone and online. Additionally, as a consultant I work with clients referred from Homewood Health, Morneau Shepell and EFAP, offering short-term solution-focused counselling, psychoeducational and professional workshop and critical incidence response. Also I am covered through Crime Victim Assistance Program and can provide Trauma counselling to individuals covered by Victims Assistance.
I completed my Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and I have an MA from Southeast Missouri State University. My experience includes counselling and teaching at schools, universities, hospitals, business and community settings in the USA, United Arab Emirates, and Canada. I bring a diverse set of cultural and spiritual experiences to my work with clients. I am fluent in English, Hindi, and Urdu, and I have basic conversational skills in Punjabi and Arabic. Let's start a dialog today so you can better evaluate the benefits of therapy.
Online therapies have begun to gain recognition as a new form of therapy that is offered via the internet using text or audio/visual tools to connect client and therapist at a distance. Not too long ago telephone was an innovative communication technology that allowed for the development of crisis call centres. The Internet too has provided opportunities for people in stress to reach out for help and support. I offer telephonic and online counselling services.
