I believe that no one is immune to life's challenges and variabilities. Hopelessness, anxiety, fear, and other negative emotions can become overwhelming, affecting our overall wellness, leaving us exhausted. I help my clients overcome these difficult emotions by providing a non-judgmental, affirming and safe environment that respects boundaries and offers the space they require for their healing process.

My personal experiences and my work with people in similar situations t my own influenced my decision to pursue a career in counselling. As an immigrant, I am aware of the complexities and challenges that a new country can present. I am mindful of the impact of acculturation on our beliefs, worldviews, and sense of self across generations. As a queer South Asian woman, I hope to provide mental health services to individuals from diverse communities, particularly those from cultures that do not have a keen awareness of mental health, such as my own. I make every effort to incorporate therapeutic techniques carefully drawn from various modalities while maintaining a person-centred, collaborative, and culturally sensitive approach.

Pritwinder is currently completing the practicum component of her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. She has a BA and MA degree in hospitality management, followed by a decade of customer service and conflict resolution experience. She has volunteer experience in responding to crises of Queer south Asian people, organizing the LGBTQ+ community’s events and building support systems.  She is a student member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
