Asma is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and has completed a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Toronto.
Asma has particular experience working alongside adult clients who have experienced childhood and adult trauma in both individual and group capacity within clinical outpatient and research settings such as the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Women’s College Hospital, the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture, and Naseeha Youth Helpline. She has supported individuals with various concerns such as: trauma, relationship and intergenerational challenges, spirituality and culture, addictive behaviours, anxiety, depression, and stress/burnout related issues.
Asma’s therapeutic approach is collaborative, non-judgemental, anti oppressive, and trauma-informed. It honours the client’s own wisdom regarding their emotional and life experiences. Asma incorporates a systemic lens in her practice to explore how broader systems such as society, culture, and family shape our individual experiences and our relationship with the self.
With the therapeutic relationship as a safety anchor for the client to reconnect with their inner wisdom and self, Asma draws from different modalities that match the client’s needs and goals, such as Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Somatic Therapy, Feminist Therapy, and Internal Family Systems.
Upon request, Asma is able to provide faith-based therapy for clients who identify as Muslim and can provide services in English, Arabic and French. You are welcome to share any accessibility needs and/or your preferred pronouns when emailing her.
