“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. This means that I am an independent practitioner licenced to assess, diagnose, and treat various psychological disorders in adults. Currently, I work at the government-funded Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program (OSP) at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) as a clinical and consultant psychologist. A major focus of my work at CAMH is to supervise clinicians who are providing culturally adapted cognitive behavioural therapy to individuals from racialized communities. Working with clients from racialized and the LGBTQ+ communities is a big part of my practice. In addition to my work at my private practice and at CAMH, I also teach graduate courses at the University of Toronto.
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 in the Work, Stress, and Health (WSH) clinic and at the University of Toronto’s Health and Wellness Centre. After completing my residency, I continued to work at the WSH 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.
