Description

In my work with clients, I take a client-centred approach that respects people as being the authority on their own experience and recognizes the key role that emotions play in our lives. I use an integrated approach to counseling that is informed by various therapeutic modalities as well as by my extensive clinical experience, but always with a focus on the uniqueness of each individual and customize the treatment plan according to individuality.

Summary

I take a client-centered approach that respects people as the authority on their own experience and recognizes the key role that emotions play in our lives. My work is informed by various therapeutic modalities as well as by my extensive clinical experiences obtained through my private practice and  also my 15+ years of working experiences as a mental health clinician at the outpatient psychiatry department of Toronto Western Hospital, 

I recognize the uniqueness of each individual and have provided psychotherapy to clients from diverse cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds.
