My Approach

Coffee Table

I work with clients who are experiencing:

  • Settlement/immigration related issues

  • Cross-cultural communication issues

  • Life transition and adjustment challenges

  • Spiritual issues

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Emotional regulation difficulties

  • Race related trauma and Islamophobia

  • Post-traumatic stress

  • Shame and honour

Populations I work with include:

  • Preteens, teens

  • Individual adults

My philosophy is understanding the whole individual ─ cognition, psyche/sense of self, heart, soul ─ and therefore, my approach explores all of these levels of experience. Although different challenges require different tools, I will explore impacts and solutions from a holistic lens with you.

Overall I use an eclectic approach but I gravitate towards the following modalities:

  • Internal family systems

  • Narrative

  • Cognitive behavioural

  • Emotion-focused

  • Acceptance and commitment

  • Relational

  • Person-centered/positive

  • Trauma-informed

  • Anti-oppressive

  • Gottman method

  • Faith-based/transpersonal

  • Islamic integrated (for those identifying)

I have an Honours Bachelor of Science degree (double major in Psychology and English) from the University of Toronto and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Windsor. I am currently working toward my Master of Fine Arts.

I have additional training in Islamic integrated psychotherapy, internal family systems therapy, and narrative therapy. I am currently working toward certification in the Gottman approach to couples counselling. 

Initial Consultation

If you have any questions or you’d like more information, I offer a complimentary 20-minute telephone/video consultation. Through this initial chat, we can determine whether we’ll be a good fit working together. If we do not match, I would be happy to refer you to a different therapist/services.


You can reach me via email at to set up a 20 minute consultation.


Services are confidential except where disclosure is mandated. Conditions where disclosure is necessary mainly involve situations of risk and harm or legal situations. I will provide you an Informed Consent form before our first session which will provide more information on this. I will also spend some time during the first session discussing this with you.
