Helping people has always been a passion. I feel a responsibility to give back to the community and have established strong roots in Edmonton. I grew in my professional role by volunteering and working with many private and non-profit agencies, each having diverse needs.
I believe that people are resilient and dynamic. As such, they have the ability to survive and adapt to any given obstacle. Inherently, each individual has their own strengths, and these strengths are often the foundation for individual growth.
I founded Medhya Counselling with the goal of providing support. I take pride in offering professional counselling services in a culturally sensitive and non-judgmental environment where individuals can be candid.
