The ability to connect with people, understand their stories, where they come from, giving meaning to their experiences and witnessing the clients journey towards hope and healing, gives me a sense of wonderful fulfillment.
Being able to help them create a sense of safety, build an atmosphere of trust and genuineness. Helping them use this time exclusively to just be and creating a sense of hope not only towards the process but also with each other.
Initiating the process of seek help can be very intimidating, it requires a lot of courage to take the first step. Anybody and everybody can come in and seek therapy if they wish to. It’s very important to find the right therapist fit. A therapist whose values align with yours. So make sure you ask a lot of questions, have clarity about the process and most importantly look for a therapist who makes you feel safe, comfortable and fosters a sense of trust.
Therapy is a collaborative, one on one genuine and an authentic relationship. Building a strong rapport, a sense of trust and being non judgemental are very crucial aspects to the relationship. It would be important for me to build a relationship in which the client will feel free and comfortable to ask me anything at any point. After every session, some time would be given for a mini feedback regarding what both: the client and the therapist took away from the session, if we are on the same page, things that worked, certain factors that can be improved upon. A few minutes would be taken before the end of every session to make the client feel grounded and present before leaving.
My ability to empathize, allowing me to enter and hold my clients’ world in a non judgemental way. Being compassionate is a strong value that i believe in which goes a long way towards healing. Being ethical and culturally sensitive, helps me look through a holistic lens of building connections and using them in helping the client feel a sense of hope.
I love reading books. Swimming is my happy place. I absolutely enjoy goofing around and playing with my dogs in my free time. Getting together at the end of the day with my family and catching up is one of my most favourite things.
My work centers around a wide range of mental health concerns such as grief and loss, complex trauma, relationship/family issues, identity related concerns, personality related vulnerabilities, emotional difficulties, work/academic stress, difficulties related to role transitions, anxiety, depression, burnout, living with a chronic illness, caregiver support.
My therapeutic approach is trauma informed, queer affirmative and eclectic in nature which helps me tailor particular therapies according to my clients need. I adopt more of a person centric approach, trying to attribute meaning to my clients experiences along with being culturally sensitive. Some of the therapies i practice include person centered therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
Seeing people as human beings, without bias and stigma is extremely important. I try to be more mindful of privilidges and create a space of acceptance, safety and non judgemental that allows the clients to feel seen and heard. I make sure my language is inclusive and work constantly towards upgrading myself to be able to create a sense of comfort.
