About Mina

I work with children and teens with school and learning-related issues such as ADHD, anger, anxiety, grief, selective mutism, negative self-concept, disordered eating and such.

I work with adults dealing with a variety of issues including attachment, trauma, and grief that may be manifesting as depression, adoption, anger, anxiety, loneliness, relationship issues, alcoholism, low self-confidence, negative self-concept, disordered eating etc.

I approach counselling from an attachment and trauma-informed lens. Over the years, I have gained experience and training in using various therapeutic approaches such as EMDR, Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Rational Emotive Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Expressive Art Therapy.
