Suhena Khosla M.A. RP (Qualifying)
When we experience chronic and severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for our lives to unravel. Sometimes we find ourselves struggling with everyday tasks, becoming easily overwhelmed or feeling disconnected from our life, goals and loved ones. Together we can find healthy perceptions of yourself and strengthen that feeling of connection.
Ultimately, the goal of my practice is to facilitate conversations with you in order to identify the ways in which you uniquely process your experiences and how we can collaboratively move forward. From there we can work on identifying tools and strategies to enhance your quality of life and achieve your greater goals.
As a therapist, I value your lived experiences and work from a systemic approach. My theoretical orientation is in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, narrative and solution-focused therapy. I work using a client centered approach, focusing on creating a non-judgemental and collaborative space with adults. I am particularly passionate about mental health in people of colour and the issues of marginalization, discrimination and racism. I work with individuals on issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, relationships, stress, major life-changes and burnout.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Carleton University with a special interest in Cognition and Neuroscience and a Master of Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. Since then I have worked in a variety of mental health settings ranging from research focused workplaces to addictions clinics, and non-profit sectors. My practice is supervised by Phaedra Gryz, Registered Psychotherapist, and Zara Canteenwalla, Registered Social Worker.
