I strongly believe that each client has the capability for recovery, acceptance, and wellness. As a therapist, my role is to provide a safe and compassionate space to process thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be preventing clients from being the best version of themselves. 

 I value using an integrative holistic approach in therapy, as I believe that there is a connection between complex facets of one’s life, be it physical health, mental health, spirituality, relationships, culture, gender and/or religion. 

 I am a client-led, trauma-informed practitioner and am warm, genuine, and collaborative. I utilize an intersectional, anti-racist, anti-oppressive, anti-colonial and strengths-based approach.

I am an ally to persons of colour, LGBTQIA+ populations, persons with various dis/abilities, sex workers, and persons who have experienced various forms of systemic oppression. I will support you regardless of where you find yourself in your journey, through fostering empowerment, empathy, compassion, and curiosity.

Sadhna's Experience

Sadhna holds a Master of Social Work, specializing in Mental Health and Health from the University of Toronto. She is a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW), and British Columbia College of Social Workers (BCCSW). With over 7 years of experience working within the mental health field, she has had the opportunity to engage in grassroots work, both within her community and internationally. This includes working at health clinics, hospitals, facilitating community group therapy work, while providing culturally competent and culturally sensitive care. This work has led her to develop a special interest in working in women’s health, specifically working with women who have experienced sexual trauma and gender-based violence.
