About Sabrina

I understand that navigating life’s challenges can be overwhelming, but with the right support and guidance, you can gain the tools you need to overcome obstacles and live a happier, more fulfilling life. My approach to counselling is warm, empathetic, and client-centered, and I strive to create a safe and supportive environment for every person who walks through my door. I am dedicated to helping you feel heard, understood, and supported as you navigate your way towards healing and growth. Let’s work together to unlock your full potential and find a path towards greater wellbeing.

My goal as a counselling intern is to create a safe space where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings, build resilience, and develop the skills they need to live fulfilling and meaningful lives. I believe that each client is unique, and I strive to tailor my approach to fit your individual needs. I will work collaboratively with you to develop personalized strategies and coping skills to help you work through life’s challenges and achieve your goals.

I am currently completing my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree at Yorkville University, where I am gaining valuable knowledge and skills to support my clients on their journey towards healing and growth. I am a student member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and am working towards pursuing my designation as a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. Prior to graduate school, I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology and Psychology at Simon Fraser University.

I primarily operate from a strength-based, client-centered integrative approach to counselling that aims to meet you where you are and help you get to where you would like to be. To do this, I draw upon a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), emotion-focused therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness-based practices to name a few. As a South Asian woman, I am fluent with the added pressures and challenges of navigating cross-cultural dynamics, and I work from a culturally sensitive lens.

Some of the areas I can help you with include, but are not limited to:

    • Personal Development
    • Life Transitions
    • Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Stress Management
    • Relationship Issues
