Issues with one's identity are often expressed as symtoms of depression or anxiety or a combination of both. These symptoms are coupled with difficulties in forming a relationship with the system, for example with parents, siblings, school, partners or workplace.I have specialized in working with teens, adolescents and families with multi-cultural identity.
I have well-developed competencies in using a systemic approach to therapy and I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Neurofeedback based mindfulness therapy approaches to treat GAD, ADHD, OCD and other anxiety related conditions. I am multi lingual and conduct therapy in English, French, Tamil and Hindi.
