Biography

After receiving her Bachelors’ in Social Work from McGill University in 2006, she started her career as a Registered Social Worker predominately working in hospitals in Montreal. Kavita expanded her career at an international level and lived in London, United Kingdom where she further advanced her skillset in risk analysis, safety planning and family reunification processes and procedure. In 2016, Kavita graduated with her Masters in Social Work from the University of Toronto. While pursuing her Masters, she found a new appreciation in evidence-informed treatment and taking a course in Neuroscience would be cause for a new and exciting direction in her approach as a Clinical therapist. Although Kavita is knowledgeable about relational patterns, processes of growth and change, acceptance, crisis management and techniques to manage daily stress, she believes that you are ultimately the expert in your life. Kavita can help you connect the pieces of your past, how these experiences have developed the person you are today and with your motivation and efforts for change, make positive experiences to benefit your future. Kavita describes her practice model with the therapeutic partnership between yourself and her, as being the number one factor in determining the outcome of therapy. She draws inspiration from a variety of modalities, theories and perspectives ranging from Systemic Theory, Emotional Focused Therapy (Attachment), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative and Mindfulness strategies. Kavita practices from an Anti-Oppressive, Strengths/ Brain- Based, Neuro counseling Framework, understanding and incorporating counselling techniques focusing on the link between brain and behavior. Kavita is committed to understanding you and your emotions, your fears, your challenges, struggles and successes from your perspective and how you experience these moments. Her acceptance, compassion, honesty, patience, insight and firm belief in collaborating with you can help create a safe space to start this dialogue. With this in mind, you and Kavita can work towards developing strategies and tools, to help reset your life to be more satisfying, present, balanced and manageable when stressed and overwhelmed. It is never an easy step to open up your life to a therapist but when you do make the decision, Kavita will welcome you and is honored and humbled to take this journey with you.
