About Ruby

The process of self-learning and connecting to our stories in order to make sense of our experiences, can be challenging and uncomfortable. You may find yourself feeling lost while carrying the immense heaviness of these challenges. I would be honored to collaborate with you, to foster your healing, and make space for your collective emotions so that you may engage with your life with a larger capacity.

I come from an integrative approach to therapy, with an emphasis on emotionally focused, mindfulness, and person centered therapy. I see humans as holistic beings through a biopsychosocial lens. This means that I acknowledge the interconnection of the biological, psychological, and social dimensions playing a role in our experiences. My own South Asian background has given me window into how our perspectives are shaped by the identities we hold. I believe it is essential to flexibly collaborate with you to honor your unique context and needs. My intention is to provide a safe therapeutic space where your voice is supported.

I am currently in the second year of my Master of Arts in Clinical Counselling Psychology program. I completed my Bachelor’s in Psychology and World Literature at SFU. I continued working as a researcher within the field, developing a keen interest in understanding the human experience. As an avid collector of books, I have always looked for meaning in the stories around me.  Over the years, I have had the privilege of working and volunteering with diverse populations, including marginalized communities, families, and children. At the heart of my approach is the therapeutic relationship, which is built on unconditional positive regard, non-judgment, empathy, safety, and a genuine alliance. Finally, I would like to acknowledge the immensely important first step you are taking in seeking therapy.
