About

I wear many hats professionally. I am an MD, a Clinical Researcher, a Project Management Professional, an Instructor at UofT, Professor at George Brown College and Humber College and a family oriented female.

I am also a published author of a few medical research publications featured in the most prestigious medical journals. My research has been published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology, International Diabetes Federation and the Journal of European Society of Cardiology.

I also conducts my own mental health workshops which speak about stress management, relationship management, good communication skills and Applied Suicide Interventions Skills training (ASIST). ASIST is a very powerful workshop that allows for anybody who gets certified in it to be able to do suicide first aid. Just like CPR certification is common within our general public and communities, there is a need for suicide first aid to be common as well.

I have conducted the ASIST program at the Centre for Deen Studies and have delivered a workshop in spiritual counseling and mental health by Iman Dr. Hamid Slimi.

I aim to build a stronger community through my compassion to educate and bring awareness to mental health.

My modalities includes: Brief Therapy, Adlerian Therapy, Enhancing Sexual Experiences For Couples, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Therapy, Dialectic Based Therapy (DHT), Solution Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic, Humanistic/Experiential Therapy, And Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Therapy.
