I hold a masters’ degree in Counselling Psychology from OISE -University of Toronto, and a B.A. Hons. degree in Psychology from York University. I also received post graduate training in addictions counselling from the Social Work program at the National University of Singapore.
Yoga and meditation practices have been an integral part of my life. I received my teachers’ training certification in 2009 in India and have received training in mindfulness meditation in traditional settings as well as MBSR/MBCT. I have also received training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1 & 2) Trauma Themes, Developmental Injury/Trauma to expand my skill set in somatic based therapies and trauma informed approaches.
From time to time, I teach yoga and offer workshops on stress management at various places. Between 2012 and 2016, I have co-faciliated an 8-week Minding Your Inner Monkey integrative workshop series for stress, anxiety and depression.
