“I am my own experiment… I am my own work of art…”
I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario- I am an independent practitioner licenced to assess, diagnose, and treat various psychological disorders in adults. Currently, I work at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) as a clinical psychologist. A major focus of my work at CAMH is to conduct comprehensive psychodiagnostic assessments for third parties within a civil-legal context for individuals who have endured work-related traumatic events. I work with first-responders, nurses, and military personnel who have experienced multiple traumatic incidents through work. I also supervise clinicians who are providing culturally adapted psychotherapy to individuals from racialized communities. Working with racial minority clients and LGBTQ+ communities is a big part of my practice. In addition, I also teach graduate courses at the University of Toronto and serve as a member of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
I completed my Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from the Memorial University. I have many years of clinical experience in community mental health, hospital outpatient and inpatient settings, and university counselling centers. I completed a CPA accredited residency at CAMH and at the University of Toronto’s Health and Wellness Centre. After completing my residency, I continued to work at CAMH as a psychologist (supervised and autonomous practice) where I mainly worked with adults with PTSD. I completed my master’s degree in clinical psychology at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine in Trinidad and my undergrad from Calcutta University in India. Receiving my education in Canada and internationally, I was able to gain invaluable experience in understanding evidence-based psychological treatments from diverse sociocultural perspectives. I continue to work on being culturally competent in my practice.
