As an EMDR certified therapist and a counsellor, I help clients to expand their inner experience and create not only a new representation of self, but also new patterns of interactions in order to connect to themselves or the significant people in their lives. My passion is to help others, and to make a real difference in people’s lives.

I've been providing therapy and counselling services to individuals and couples on diverse issues such as trauma and stress-related disorders, depressive and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, somatic symptoms and related issues as well as communication, relationship and marital issues. My work for professional counselling service businesses, as well as non-profit social service organizations (KWCS), has provided me valuable experience in using a variety of therapeutic techniques such as Mindfulness-Integrated Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MiCBT), Compassion Focused therapy (CFT), Narrative Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) , while following client center model and recognizing the importance of applying appropriate interventions aligned to cultural differences.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I'm a Certified EMDR Therapist, Neuropsychotherapist, Emotionally-Focused Couple Therapist (EFT) and an active member of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally-Focused Therapy (ICEEFT).
I hold a Master degree of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) from Yorkville University. In addition to English, I am fluent in Farsi. Serving North York, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Aurora & Newmarket areas.
