About me as an Individual Therapist…

Welcome to the first step in exploring and creating change in your life. I know that searching for support that fits your needs can be challenging, but I am proud of you to have made it here, and I am honoured that I can possibly work with you to support you in creating that change! 

I am a Registered Social Worker providing individual adult therapy at RTC. Whether we meet online or in person, I promise to create a non-judgemental and safe space where we get to meet, reflect, unpack, and move forward together. I do not believe there is a “one size fits all” method, and I therefore take the first few sessions to get to know you and tailor my approach to fit your needs. 

Like a car, we as humans also need to maintain ourselves in order for us to perform well. Attending therapy sessions are your oil changes, engaging in self-care practices is filling your tank, and although challenges may come your way out of nowhere like a flat tire, together we can build a toolbox of support to help you overcome them. Through a narrative, person-centred, and anti-oppressive approach, I am here to sit in the passenger seat and help you drive your car as you navigate life and make meaningful change. Most importantly, you have the power to choose your destination; I will just be here to support you on your journey. 

More About Me:

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I am a Registered Social Worker. Beyond my role as a social worker, I am also a son of South Indian immigrant parents and am continuously growing in this role of finding space to honour my culture in our Western society. Through this, I have come to value community, vulnerability, respect, and authenticity, and strive to be a forever learner to encourage both personal and professional growth.

When I am not in the office, you can find me jamming out at a concert or at a restaurant trying something new. I have a love for fashion, which includes going thrifting, reviewing red carpet outfits, and filling up multiple shopping carts on various websites. When I get the chance, I love to travel around the world, whether it is visiting family in India or adventuring on a solo backpacking trip in Europe. My forms of self-care include going to the gym and power lifting, having a night in and watching a thriller movie, and learning a new hip hop routine with friends.

I am looking forward to getting to know you!
