Nalin Bisnath is committed to providing tools and strategies to address your mental health issues and to develop your internal strengths. I believe that mental health is not just about repairing problems but also discovering one's strengths. My goal as a psychotherapist is to enrich, empower and elevate by using therapeutic modalities that are suited to the individual's  unique personalities and life experiences.

Guided by the tenets of patience, authenticity and mindfulness, my goal in psychotherapy is two fold; assist individuals and couples on their journey toward building awareness, compassion, understanding, respect, empathy and acceptance toward oneself and others. The second goal is to reduce the stigma attached to mental health. I understand and applaud the courage to engage in therapy which is why I cultivate an environment that is not only non-judgmental but also enables individuals to be their authentic selves.
