We were never meant to do this alone. A therapeutic relationship can be a bridge back to yourself and a safe anchor in this world. Hala believes in therapy as a means to help you access and enhance the wisdom, resilience, and capacity to grow from adversity you already have in your possession.
Hala provides individual psychotherapy to those with a variety of life experiences, including but not limited to: childhood trauma, intergenerational challenges, family and relationship challenges, identity and life transitions, anxiety, depression, grief and burnout.
In her practice, Hala nurtures the mentality that everyone has unique sources of resilience and the ways to help them harness this resilience must be distinctive as well. She draws from trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and strengths-based frameworks to develop a tailored approach that works for you.
Over the past several years, Hala has worked in clinical outpatient hospital settings, community health centres and currently provides crisis-counselling to clients facing a wide range of concerns. In addition to her work as a therapist, Hala writes psychoeducational mental health content for Wellnest.
Hala completed a specialist in Psychology and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Toronto.
Hala provides faith-based therapy for clients who identify as Muslim and provides services in English, Hindi and Urdu.
She is a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and the Ontario Association of Social Workers.
