Amrita strives to provide a
safe, warm and caring space
for all emotions to be explored and expressed, without judgment. Her primary approach is Emotion Focused Therapy. She believes that all our emotions – even those that seem difficult or dark – provide us with important information about our needs. Through expression and acceptance, we can begin to regulate and transform our emotions for sustained healing and growth.
In addition to Emotion Focused Therapy, Amrita has advance trainings and experience in several other approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness based approaches, and mediation. She is able to adapt therapy to the unique needs of the individual.
Amrita believes in the interconnectedness of all aspects of our being – emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, and social. She values a holistic approach to healing.
Amrita completed her Masters of Education degree, with a specialization in Counselling Psychology, at the University of Alberta. She has worked at a community mental health clinic for Alberta Health Services, where she had extensive experience counselling clients with a wide variety of mental health issues. In addition, she has enjoyed work in a variety of volunteer settings, including the Distress Line and Pilgrim’s Hospice.
