Sana has a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Toronto, and a certification in Mental Health and Addictions. She has completed specialized training in several therapeutic interventions including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and mindfulness.
Seeking therapy can be a stressful and scary step, and Sana feels privileged each day that she is invited into an individual’s life, to learn about their culture and ways of being, and be entrusted with their stories. She sees her role as providing a comfortable space within which to bring up uncomfortable topics, by being non-judgmental, client-centered, and trauma informed in her practice. Sana greatly values feedback at every step of the therapeutic process and will work hard to support you on your journey.
Sana has been fortunate to work with youth, adults, couples, parents, and families, as they cope with symptoms of anxiety, depression, stressful events, relationship conflicts, grief, and life transitions, among others. Her experience includes practicing in multiple hospital and community based mental health settings and supporting emerging psychotherapists and social workers in their learning.
Sana provides services in English, Urdu and Hindi.
Sana is a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and of the Ontario Association of Social Workers.
