Sadhna (She/her/hers) strongly believes that each client has the capability for recovery, acceptance, and wellness. As a therapist, her role is to provide a safe and compassionate space to process thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be preventing clients from being the best version of themselves. She is a client-led, trauma-informed practitioner and is warm, genuine, and collaborative. Sadhna utilizes an intersectional, anti-racist, anti-oppressive, anti-colonial and strengths-based approach.
Using an integrative holistic approach in therapy is something Sadhna values, as she believes that there is a connection between complex facets of one’s life, be it physical health, mental health, spirituality, relationships, culture, gender and/or religion.
She is an ally to persons of colour, LGBTQIA+ populations, persons with various dis/abilities, sex workers, and persons who have experienced various forms of systemic oppression. Regardless of where you find yourself in your journey, Sadhna will support you through fostering empowerment, empathy, compassion, and curiosity.
Sadhna holds a Master of Social Work, specializing in Mental Health and Health from the University of Toronto. She is a Registered Social Worker with the British Columbia College of Social Workers. With over 5 years experience of working within the mental health field, she has had the opportunity to engage in grassroots work, both within her community and internationally. This includes working at health clinics, hospitals, facilitating community group therapy work, while providing culturally competent and culturally sensitive care. This work has led her to develop a special interest in working in women’s health, specifically working with women who have experienced sexual trauma and gender-based violence.
Outside of the therapy room, Sadhna enjoys travelling, painting, and baking.
